I've been using Miss Annie as my photography weasel lately (: Too lazy to get the pictures posted now, so I'll show you how her daughter looks! Man, it would have been awesome to get both her and her daughter!
Sorry for totally ditching everyone here, schools been insane! Anyways, I'm so incredibly proud of my girl. I never thought we'd get this far. I haven't worked with her since last summer, and a couple months ago I was bored and decided to go out and see what she could remember. I knew the saddle didn't fit so I couldn't use that, and she'd broke our last bridle, so I made a bridle out of bailing twine (a pretty amazing bridle if I do say so myself ) and hopped on her bareback (just thought I'd throw this out there...mounting a 16HH horse from the ground when you're short is a very hard thing to do lol) and she did amazing! I was blown away! No buck, bolt, rear, nothing! I rode her without telling anyone for a while because it just felt so unreal! And after I told my mom about it we've been doing even better! We've been trotting, getting her better with leg yielding, and neck reining. I'll try and upload some videos if I can, because her trot is beyond beautiful, but for now I'll just leave you guys with a spam of pictures (:

Her with her buddy, Diesel (: She loves him so much, it's so cute!
I must admit, I just sat here for the past hour reading through 42 pages of this thread to see how far Annie has come along! She is such a beautiful horse and it seems that the two of you have an amazing bond together! I adored seeing how she went from a droopy, weak and underweight thing to a very beautiful, well rounded and alert mare. I hope that the two of you have many years together in the future <3 I would love to continue seeing updates from Annie and yourself <3
