A year yesterday I set off to collect Hattie and Gilda, a mare and foal I had only met twice and had never touched or handled. Gilda at 5 months was just a baby so pretty straight forward but her 5 year old mum was totally unknown and could have been a nightmare...but she turned out to be an angel
Two months before I collected her
And a year later
The following year we did this
We went out to a training meet with the bloodhounds and she behaved as if shed been a million times
The Opening Meet was great fun.
Gilda filled out and lost some of the yearling uglies.
June 12 - at Mum's camp.
So many photos in July , that I like, but here are a few :)
Hattie learns to lead the way
Then this last year...
And had our first first
And our first SJ competition
And a friend got her to do this
And with another friend...
And we recently tried a few steps of medium trot
And baby Gilda did this
And today Hattie got a 4th in the 2' SJ class at my local club and just had a pole down in the 2'3 but she seemed to really enjoy it. I love my haffies and I'm so chuffed with them.
