This is Rosy, she's a rescued BLM burro. When she first came here she hated everyone. She just liked her solitude and was wild as hell. Now she's a sweet and affectionate watch burro!!! Mosy Rosy, as we call her, is as sweet as sugar and loved to pet pet and played with. She would climb up in your lap if she could. She keeps the coyotes off the property. Oh, and she's fun to chase around. She's a fatty, she needs her exersize too! During feeding, she'll stare up at you like she's starving. So we sometimes call her "The starving indonesian child..." because she acts as if she's never been fed before. haha
And this is Cricket. She is MY horse. My very first horse all to my own. 100 percent completely mine. She's an appendix mare and my love. After my boys left, my heart was broken, but she's filling the space in my heart quite nicely. Although it can never be completely replaced, she's just taking up a place all of her own. I'm so proud of her. This is the day I got her. She's getting a bit fatter now and more muscle after constant lunging. I havent ridden her yet. She needs more muscle on her top line.
These pics are a more recent. She's broke but still green. My friend/trainer told me that the lady said that Cricket didn't stand while getting saddled. She said she pulled and reared and freaked out. Supposedly she was very flighty and prancy. Well, it was true. But after about a week of working with her, now she stands very still and relaxed while I put a saddle on her to lunge.
Here she is saddled in the Billy Cook. Right now it's the only thing that fits her alright. I still keep forgetting to bring my Circle Y out to see if it fits. I think she might be too high withered though.
And a yawn
She says "Moooom I want to doooo someting!!! No more standin' around!"
Lemme know what y'all think!
