The newest herd addition - Monster pony

So... its a long story, but I ended up with a friends horse, to do some training on her such as lunging, learning how to canter under saddle, woahing, backing, softening and a few other things. She is a good horse in general, although riding her with other horses is hell. Her owner doesnt have the softest hands, and her mouth is hard as a rock, she walks quite literally 1000 milles an hour, and is spooky of about everything. When she first arrived, Rusty (the bay) was not thrilled... Usually the lowest man on the totem pole he actually took charge of her... Poor baby got kicked a few times when he got overly arrogant with her. But now they get along pretty well as long as it doesnt involve people in the mix. Taz has liked her from the beggining. But since she has been in their pasture, they have became like two peas in a pod, more so than ever.

The two peas in a pod...


First time with her in their pasture. Smelling...


First time riding her. Her first time riding English, also!


Riding her... Sorry the quality is so horrible, its a video still >.<


The next day I went out to catch her... And, I literally was walking around the pasture for 2 hours trying to catch her, until I decided that this wasnt working so I got on the four wheeler and chased her around abit. I got off every so often to see if she had a change of heart, and Bella, dripping with sweat, and tired, ran up to me <3 She hasnt run from me in the pasture since. I decided when she was running around the pasture that I might as well get some photos...

Haha, her neck and head look so massive in this picture






The three muskateers...


Rustys general attitude to her



E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

While Bella is running around the pasture...






Finally caught the evil munchkin...


I havent had a mane to play with forever, since I roached Rustys mane, and Taz just doesnt have a mane, so I was in heaven


And then... On Monday I went riding, in a T shirt. Tuesday brought rain, and a steady drop in temperature, then a ice storm hit, then snow... Then, Wednesday had nearly a foot of snow.

Rusty Smurf <3


I only have two blankets, for Taz and Rusty... Poor babe had to go without :(


I love his muzzle <3


Me and my first and favourite love.


Sorry for the picture overload...

Rusty!! <3 Can I just say that Taz's tail, or lack thereof , is pathetic? The mare is gorgeous, though. Obviously, I have a soft spot for buckskins hehe

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh
