"Hello, Clarice"

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

took last week off doing anything. The humidity got bad and I don't like to sweat.

So updates from yesterday and today!






Doesn't he just look thrilled?

My first ever ear shots with him! Today was the 3rd time I've sat on him and the 1st time we unhooked the lead rope. We worked on forward motion. We ended with some nice walk-stop transitions with a light squeeze and a walk. Much better than how we started.






Tomorrow we try again, after a visit from the farrier for a reset on his shoes and a trim.

It looks like he's really coming a long nicely for you!

I really hope that things continue to go well. :)

He is a cutie!

It's weird because at the appy breeding farm I bought two fillies from years ago there was a colt that looked just like him and his name was Samuel. haha

You know what I've noticed?

In most of the pictures, Sammy's eyes look like black pits. I was thinking of renaming him "Demon" but I'd be worried he'd act like one!


This is what Sammy thought of the farrier today.


^ Twitchy face.^

And... Bonus, a baby pic of Sammy

I love coming to the barn in the morning to see something like this. All the horses lined up with the morning sun behind them.



I always seem to catch my boys making faces.


My yearling Stryder does not want to be left out of the shot




another early morning shot. My yearling is catching up to Sammy in height.
.
This is what they do for a living. Eat hay and lounge.



And height difference. POA, Stryder (yearling) and Sammy behind him


Don't let the photos fool you. Sammy's still in work to be broke.



he's so bored...


and practice tying.

That is Captain Pickles!

He has been with the yearling (Stryder) since last year and thinks the yearling is his baby. He's super protective and wouldn't let Sammy near him for 2 days, now he just kind of hangs his head at their antics. Pickle-Pony makes a great babysitter.
