Okay, another picture overload LOL. I decided to braid her mane today because it's very poofy and all over the place and I'd really like to train it to stay to one side. Anyway, she did great with the brushing and just got a bit figety about halfway through. Other than that, she did great....though it really makes her ugly neck more noticable :/.

Nope, there's no wind there, that's just how her mane grows...straight up LOL.



She was rather unimpressed by the time we were through.




"Don't look at me!"


Anyway, after that was done, I decided to take her out for a walk because outside is pretty much a gauntlet right now. Still have snow drifts about 2 feet deep in places...and mud puddles 2 feet deep in others LOL.

And, I decided it was time she learned to walk through the "people" door like all my other horses. She was a little unsure at first, but quickly decided that it was no big deal.




"Are you really going to make me walk through this?"


*sigh*"Okay, fine."


Then, I decided to take her and introduce her around. Shut off the charger to the fence so nobody would get zapped and let them get to know each other across the fenceline.


Just a slight size difference there...








She was very unimpressed by Taz's attempt at studliness

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/

And Rafe wasn't too sure about her.






Her version of "talk to the hand" LOL


Even ******* came up for a sniff.


Then, we took a nice little walk down the road


She saw some interesting stuff, but nothing worthy of being even a little scared of.


Then, she met the horses in the "big horse pen"








She was just as unimpressed with John's macho attitude as she was with Taz's

Then we went back around through some mudholes and snow and then back into the barn...where she didn't even hesitate at the door.










So, she had her little adventure and then went back to enjoying her mineral block and her hay.

She is really doing well. I guess that the very things that spook barn raised horses won't even bother her. She's already seen the crazy things out in the world.

Thank you . I'm thinking you might be right. I sort of hope so. Dobe was that way too, he once had a coyote jump out from between his front legs as we were loping across a pasture and all he did was flick an ear at it. However, he was absolutely convinced that the neighbor down the road had some sort of evil, shiny, horse eating dragon mounted on their boat trailer LOL.

LOL, yep, her neck is fugly, but I love her anyway. Maybe she'll muscle up a bit as she grows and when she's old enough to get started under saddle.

Either way, it seems like she's going to make a really good horse. She takes everything in stride and doesn't really freak out about anything now. If she stays that way, she may end up the type that anybody can ride. If that's the case, then she'll be more than worth her free price tag...fugly or not .

I think the rest of her makes up for the neck. Hopefully she will fill out and her neck will look better eventually. If not, you might think about consulting a hairdresser about what to do with her mane..........

If it ends up being truly horrible looking when she's grown, she may end up being the horse that gets a nice arched roach to hide it a bit better.

I brought a little 2yo QH gelding home last summer.. he was underweight and his head was as long as his neck. He's put on quite a bit of weight (and is growing!) but his head is still as long (or longer) than his neck..
