The Merrylegs and Whiskey thread!

Ok so rather than posting multiple threads for Whiskey and Merrylegs, i intend to keep it neat by sharing all my pictures in this thread.
So when i was away mother told me nothing was done with the horses exercise wise and in merrylegs case training wise, but now i'm home the past few days i have put a lot of attention to the horses and already i can see a change taking place in merrylegs.
Before she would run away from you, flinch when you went to pet her, move away when you tried to groom her but, and she would never take a treat from your hand!
we have left a long rope on her when she's in the big field as she is not to keen on being caught (yes i know it can be dangerous, but i have checked the field and there is nothing to get tangled on and they get checked many times a day) i don't think the rope will be on her for much longer though as she never tried to run away from me today which i'm seeing as great progress.
I am so pleased with this little pony she's such a quick learner and despite being quite unsure of people she is very brave!

Dumfries right? *SIGH* sometimes I miss the UK, especially the best bits of it, and Dumfries certainly is one of the nicer places.

Gorgeous pony, how big?

Not quite Dumfries but in the D&G region. We've just moved to Boreland and i absolutely LOVE it here!
Merrylegs is a Welsh sect A, and we are yet to measure her properly but judging by eye i'm guessing 12hh-12.2hh, she's also supposed to be 7 or 8 years old, however i think she may well be older and after watching her try to eat a carrot today i'm intending to get her teeth checked as it took her a good 2 mins to eat a little bit of carrot. Although judging by how tubby she is she seems to be getting all the nutrients just fine the wee porker!

So i checked Merry's teeth today for a rough guesstimate on her age, i have put her at roughly 13 or 14 and we also measured her at about 11hh seems i was totally off!
My step dad also decided he wanted to ride whiskey.... she wasn't best pleased as she isn't too keen on men however she never tried to throw him off or mess about (which i'm putting down to the fact i already had her out twice that day)

figure id share this cause i find it rather amusing, my mother in her pyjama bottoms, her silly open toe shoes and my brothers work jumper on. (the joys of having no neighbors)
Merrylegs is just like
"don't touch me! *snob face*"
for some reason Merrylegs just seems to have a snobby attitude lol
And a few video stills of me riding whisks bareback a while ago

She does this thing when you canter bareback where she gets excited and hops for a few strides.

Meant to post these last week, anyways, Merrylegs is getting so good now, you can pretty much walk up to her in the feild without her trying to run away from you! and she's stopped pulling away from you when you try to pet her.
just sharing a few of my fav pictures from that day.
Whiskey being jealous that merry gets the attention!

My nepthew and brother in laws niece love wee merry
