Horsey cuddle pics. =] It was pony picture day.

WARNING: TONS OF PICTURES. =D

First, I worked with Gracie on our new lunging skills. I took her out on Wednesday and taught her how in about five minutes, had a little more difficulty tracking right [she's a total lefty], but managed a walk and trot both ways. I was very impressed when I started using vocal commands [walk, trot, and woah] and she responded. I thought I would have to teach her those, but apparently not. Maybe she watches Ricci? =P So I went two days without touching her, and pulled her out today. She lunged like she's been doing it for years. Perfect transitions both to the left and the right. She wasn't coming in on me or pulling to get to the end of the rope, just kept to her circle. I was so proud! We've only done it for a total of 15 minutes and I can already keep her going easily enough that I could take pictures!

Trot.


Walking.












I got some pictures of her standing and waiting on the lunge line, but I took the pictures with my phone and it says the images are too large to send. How disappointing.

So then I rode Ricci, got a decent picture of her pretty head before our ride, then took pictures of my two girls cuddling. After that I tied Ricci to my truck to let her graze and snapped a million pictures while the two other ponies looked pitifully at the "better" grass on the other side. =]

So here's Ricci's pretty head.


Some cuddles. =]






Gracie being naughty and trying to chew on Ricci's halter.


Ricci: The never-ending yawner, lol. She thinks she worked hard. =]




More pictures in the next post. =]

Here's Ricci enjoying the grass on the outside of the pasture. =] [And my pretty truck.]





Showing off her trace clip and "R."


"Oh god! Something's over there!"


"Nevermind. False alarm."


She always has to get to the very end of her rope, lol.




And the jealous on-lookers. [The chestnut is my friend's mare, Maizy, who thinks the world is falling down around her when I take Ricci away.]


The end. =]

Gracie is very cute. I love how long her mane and forelock are especially since she is a baby, how tall do you think she will mature to? Ricci's tail is gone?! Hehe, she is so white. My moms "white" mare is a pasture horse so she is more yellow now than white... *sigh* nice to see a whitey actually white...

Gracie is probably going to be a borderline pony. My bet is 14.1. Dad is 14hh, mom is 14.3, lol.

Ricci's tail... oh boy. She got the black part caught on something and yanked it out about two years ago, so I cut the white part so it didn't look so goofy. We are ever so slowly growing it back. I think it's taking so long because she damaged the end of her tail pretty bad when she ripped it out, and because the black tail hair is pretty wirey.

Ricci is 15.2. =]

how old is that horse thats being lunged ? it looks awfully young, too young for lunging to be honest. go into the training board and post for the reason why you shouldent be lunging a young horse.

theyre all gorgeous though.
