Boo is coming along fairly well. I'll get a pic this evening of his wound for an update.
Jems is the herd leader when I am not out there so she does have some attitude and tends to be reluctant at first to try different things. Once she gets a feel of things and realize it doesn't hurt or isn't trying to eat her then she falls into it fluently. I have not done much more than get her healthy while she has been with us due to hoping my daughter would take an interest in working her own horse while seeing me work the others. Alas, that has not happened, instead she is more concerned about her social life. I'll be glad when she becomes an adult. Lol
Now that I would like to have a horse for me as a backup in case Amber does end up taking Trusty from me, I have started working on Jems. I'll either get her some what green broke and sell her to find a more finished horse or do what every it takes to get her finished and trail rated.
You mentioned my Jeep, my baby, my boy...I have been building it into a rock crawler in my spare time. I took it offroading a fair amount when it was stock and even more after giving it a 4" lift and putting 33in mud terrains on it. I've been to several offroad parks designed for it and some really wild offroad vehicles. I could go on for days about that thing, but this section is for horses,lol, and it would belong in the vehicle section. Here are some pics of it through different stages of life though.
Bought for $600
Installed better front seats and rims/tires
Lifted and larger tires for better articulation
Then got bitten by the rock crawler bug and this is where it is now.. Amber Jeep.jpg building it.jpg
I still have some work to do on it to get it ready for the trails again, but the horses are now on the front burner now. It will get my attention again when I feel better about where the horses are in trail worth. Lol
