I have lots of pictures comming, I just have to get them all processed and uploading and everything.

Here are some names I have thought of.

Faline ~ from bambi
Akilah ~ Arabic for Wise, Bright, Smart
Aminah ~ meaning trustworthy

That's all I have so far.

I like Aminah. Good luck with her. She looks like a nice little filly, what a happy ending to the story.

If she was born April 15th she isn't four months old?

ETA: saw that was mentioned already. She looks around 3 months to me. Hopefully you can get her papers.

yeah technically if I heard right at the auction and she was born on April 15th, that would make her 2 months old.. 3 months old tomorrow on June 15th.. which means she should NOT have been weaned this early.. but she had no choice and neither did we :/


As far as her handling goes, so far she allows me to walk up to her in the stall and put the halter on without any hesitation, she leads except for when she decides she wants a bite of grass, but she's learning. She lets me pick up birth front feet, and touch he rear end and rear legs down to her hocks.. I have her yielding those hind quarters. And we are working on desensitzing to scary objects and sounds, which is going quite well.


2 days ago was her first time out on a lead rope outside of a psture or pen. She was on a lead rope out in the open. And I tied her up, which she was PERFECT for! So that makes me so happy!

We let her out in the pasture for the first time yesterday, worried we wouldn't be able to catch her. And of course we were right. Its still to early to set her out in the pastures. She just got to excited and was running around the herd, but because they were picking on her a tad, she ran back to her stall to hide. And I just walked right up to her in the stall. And pet her, then closed her back in. We will try this again in a couple of days to make sure she isn't going to be bolting around again. But I DID get tons of pictures!

These are from 2 days ago. For her first time out in the open.

I love her to bits already, and she's so smart and willing. Here are some photos from yesterday. From her running around in the pasture. And also back in the stall. We put some toys up for her, of course they are homemade haha. I also played around with splashing her and rubbing water on her. I hope to be able to bathe her soon. But we will see how it goes.

I love her extended trot!

papers say she was foaled on February 26th, so that makes her 4 months old, and going on 5 months in a couple of weeks.

so we decided on the name Mercedes for her. And we will call her Sadie for short.

We also let her out of the stall yesterday to play some more, and she finally let us come up to her and love on her. She also managed to escape our fence and get loose completely, and let us catch her thank god, and then we spent the rest of the day Mercedes proofing the fence haha

Aww, she's adorable! You have been doing amazing with her! (4 months seems like an amazing age lol my girl started training when she was 4 months, too!) Keep up the good work!! (and keep us updated! )

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

That's amazing how well she is doing after being untouched for that long at such an important age in her life...It's so great how much she trusts you, sounds like a smart girl! I think she's picked her owner as well ;)
