Egrogan, all but 1 of my other horses are geldings. One of my drafties is a mare. When Talyn gets to the point where she'll approach me and let me catch her without having to hem her up in a corner, then I plan on turning her out into the smaller paddock. In there, she would be with Dobe, Bessie (the Belgian mare), John (Percheron gelding), and Tiny (retired Belgian mule gelding). Eventually, she'll probably end up out in the big pasture with all the other horses you can see in the pictures, but that's probably quite a while away yet.
Anyway, no new pictures today. Batteries in my camera died and I don't have any new ones. I did manage to pick up her hind feet...after a pretty decent struggle. She would give them willingly enough to the rope, but when I got close enough to actually grab them with my hands, she would get anxious and try to get away. She went through a stage on both where she would lean all her weight on me but after I let her fall a couple of times, she stopped that. Thankfully, she only tried to kick me once in earnest. She missed, but I didn't...and she didn't try again.
After about 30 minutes, she would let me pick them up both ways with no fight (stretched out behind her and also folded up under her belly) so long as I went slow.
So, hopefully the farrier coming will be relatively problem free and I do promise
pictures of that.
Oh, and I'll have to see if I can get my camcorder fixed. Dobe is getting to where he wants her to play. She hasn't quite got the idea yet, but it is funny as heck watching him run circles around the roundpen, bucking and farting
