Love the picture of you and her! You've come so far already and she seems so willing. <3

Those are quite the markings hey! Very flashy little girl. Looking forwards to seeing you work with her. I nicely demand more pictures.

Wow, I havent been on this thread in a few days. Last I saw, you were just barely able to touch her. And already she is wearing a halter, leading, picking up feet and letting you lean on her! Im super impressed. She must have a great, calm personality. She's a winner!

Dobe is such a great help! Lucky you to have such a helper. She's doing great.

Just read all of this, and loved the Dobe intro. What a good teacher. She's adorable.

I don't know your other horses-are they all geldings? I love the thought of the wayward little girl being raised by three "big brothers"

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 .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Sounds like it's going great. I think Dobe has found his new calling in life.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
