Ms. Flicka

Got a bunch of new pics of ms. Flicka, my new girl. She doing great, and retraining is going quite smoothly. So far she has learnt how to disengage her front and hind quarters, is learning how to sidepass, ground tying, walking up to a mounting block and standing there while I get up on it, and then rub her all over. She has learnt how to bend laterally, both sides. She has been saddled, and I have moved the stirrups all over, and tapped on the saddle with my carrot stick from both sides, etc. I've handled her feet alot, as when I got her she was nervous about it, and now she gives them willingly. She is still learning how to longe.

When I got Flicka, she was supposedly able to be ridden, but developed a bucking problem; suprise, suprise, given all the things she DIDN'T know, as the things I've taught her in the last two weeks where things she did not understand. I spent most of the first week, working on catching her; building her trust, so that it wasn't a battle to go out and catch her. She is walking up to me pretty consistantly, and will let me walk up to her, if she doesn't decide to come up. When I got her, she would run away, eyes white, and snorting.

I love all your wooden corrals! Is it cheaper than metal ones? I like the look they give to the scenery.

I know, I love the wood corral too; I'm not sure, costwise, how much it costed the school, as I didn't build them. I know 'normally' a wooden corral is a bit more costly to build, but the school I work and live at has alot of stuff donated, or given to them at a really good price.

The disadvantage would come if one of the horses tried to go over, or through, I'm sure, as the wood would likely splinter, and cut them up pretty good. The horses we have are really good though. We have a regular round pen that I prefer to use for ground work, as I feel more comfortable working a horse in it, especially if they get hyped up. It's higher, and not so likely to 'break' on them should they go over.
