Wow, looks like she's coming around quickly. She really is gorgeous and I look forward to pictures of you 2 riding off into the sunset.

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/

Cascade was a little irritated with her paddock mate. The trainer thinks that one or both might be in heat, so she separated them. They're working on building a new shelter and small paddock uphill from a bad muddy spot, so things have been busy. She doesn't even blink an eye at all the noise/machinery/activity near the pen. The trainer is going to start her with a halter next week. My in-laws are also coming to visit next week, so I'm hoping I can sneak away to see her again soon.

Hey odnt know I'f this is the case,but my experiance withi wild horses, is that they are not particularly social with other horses for a long Long time. My last lot if they were individually padlocked with a domestic horse avoided the other horse at all costs. If the over freindly domesticated one came near they quickly got a nice pair of heels and asked to leave.....

Been keeping up with your posts all very exciting! Good luck!

Lol I having a mild panic, seven wild stallions arrive today, big job to do over the next few weeks! the wild horse project

I think it depends on the horse - no matter if its domestic or a mustang - some will accept a new horse quickly while others take time.
smrobs and boots like this.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Agreed, Cat. Dobe integrated with the herd immediately when he was turned out with them....after establishing his rightful place as alpha LOL.

I just now am finding this thread and I read through all 11 pages.. Glad you found a great horse and I look forward to keeping up with your journey with her! She's a gorgeous girl and it seems as though she's already come far in the time you've owned her.

The other horse with her is also a mustang, though one that is a little further along with her training. Cascade was in the holding pens for the BLM for two full years, so she's pretty used to being in close quarters with other horses. She was actually really gentle, definitely dominant, but never in a mean way with the other horse.

Even now, it's more that they're both a little pushier than they have been. The trainer says several of the other mares are in heat, so everyone in the group is a little on edge. She's not concerned, and still hasn't shown any sign of honest aggression since she's been at the trainer's. I don't blame her for being a little irritable, it's been really hot and humid the last few days.

I can't wait to see her again.

I just wanted to add that the only reason she had a paddock mate was to show her that the shelter wasn't scary. She was really freaked out by closed in spaces initially. Now she's using the shelter, so the other horse did her job. The trainer wants Cascade focused on people right now, anyway.
