I took new pictures of Kaja. I've had her for 3 months so far and she's gained quite a bit of weight (still quite a ways to go though).
Last night, she met some new friends who were happy to give her all sorts of cuddles. She also recently discovered the world of treats and harassed them for all the treats she could get.
She also got her first lesson in saddling. First with my roommate's dressage saddle and second with my barrel saddle. She wasn't entire sure about tightening the girth, but got over it right away. I couldn't cinch up mine because my cinch is 34" and she is nowhere near that big.
I only used a blanket because my ESP pad is bigger than she is and I didn't want to try the TackyToo one on her for the first time with how long her hair is and risk it pulling her hair and her spooking. Unfortunately, my saddle is wayy too big for her, but she is lacking any sort of back at all still.
Braided forelocks are much neater looking. And a bridle! (Roommate's, not mine. I don't actually own a bit..)
Roommate braided her tail too and was jealous that my horses have such thick tails.
We love horse butts.
