Aw, come on now, everyone goes through a bit of an awkward phase, cut her some slack. :) I am confident her neck will catch up with the rest of her, though it may take a couple years.

Okay, today was the first day I've been able to just walk right up to her out in the middle of the pen and pick all 4 feet up without a halter on her head or a fence on the other side of her.

I did find out that I'm really glad she's a (mostly) dark colored horse. She's kind of a filthy pig .






I took her out for another little walk and after we got back, I decided to try to brush off some of the ick from her coat. I opened the door to the tack room, tossed the lead over her back, and left her standing in the isle of the barn while I went to get a curry.

I heard a "clop, clop, clop" and turned around to see this...


So, I backed up to the wall to give her some space and she ever so calmly walked in, turned around, and walked out LOL.




So, I followed her out and brushed her down. Then she did it again when I went to go put the brush up. I beat her out that time though.


I messed with Taz just a bit after I turned her back out and, while I was walking back toward the house, I found this and thought it was really cool.

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/

Absolutely!!! The best kids horse that ever lived here was ugly as sin. Big grulla mare, head that would make even the most jugheaded nag look pretty, she had one nostril ripped off on a barbed fence at prior owners, was as long as a semi BUT you could toss a handful of kids on her and trust her to be a better babysitter than most human daycare providers. You'd have never guessed looking at that mare that she had hundreds of youth points and 4 world titles under her belt. An example of just how ugly she was...a bunch of the horses got loose and meandered down the rr tracks and ended up in the 'yard' of a local radio station. They called my grandpa and asked if he knew anyone missing a bunch of horses, they were certain they weren't his because one was a mule.

She's still very young, a bit of age & good solid work might just surprise you how she turns out.

Today she had her first lesson in standing tied. Tied her to the trailer and then went in the house (I could still easily see her by peeking through the curtains and I could hear her as well).

After about 30 minutes of pacing, pawing, and whinnying, I guess she figured out it wasn't working so she stopped and just stood calmly with slack in the rope. I don't think that's too bad of a timeframe considering she's never been kept away from other horses before...at all.


She was even standing with a cocked leg .

LOL, she's definitely like Dobe in that respect. You never have to guess what she's feeling because she makes it obvious.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

At least there's slack in your rope and you wont be needing to cut her loose :/ I take it she didn't pull back much? Or at all?
