Are you doing neck brands ONLY? I do need a couple of horses done, but I have a custom brand being made and would like it done with my brand and on the hip. If you could do that, I'd love to have it done while you're in the Houston area. =)
Uuuugh. So yesterday I got a call that my mare and baby had escaped into my neighbor's property. Thankfully he was SUPER nice and helped me catch and lead them back across to my pasture. Even offered to fix the section of fence for me! I love horse people, they're so dang nice!
While I was out there I did some work with my baby. He's doing SO well with his halter training and is ready to start working on his feet so that we can get everyone trimmed at the same time.
Holly has now been ridden twice this past week and did AWESOME! She's going to need finishing touches, but I feel she'll be ready for her first trail ride sometime this fall! AND I measured her again yesterday...she's 14.3! A whole inch taller than I thought! She has officially outgrown both her dam and sire. Hehe
I was wondering if people in my area might want to get together before it gets too cold and have a small trail ride/picnic? It could be in a central location. Didn't you mention something about a state park your way, TG?
That's what I told her .. my barn is full, but we could probably get them placed..
I rode Badger on Saturday! He's the two year old with (I don't really know how many) days of training on him. He was VERY babyish, but sooooo good. He's got a fabulous little trot and is willing and forward .. I like him.
It was the first time DH and I rode together (we borrowed another saddle - need saddle pads) .. we rode around the pasture with Badger leading and Gunner following .. ha! I sure picked the right horse for DH ..
No pics, but will get some next time.. we love our little cow ponies.
I need notice to get a horse into shape - I think mine might only be good for 5 miles before they'll kill over...LOL!!!! I haven't been riding much at all this whole year! I've been too busy drooling over corvettes......
Well Badger won't be the only greenie! Holly is still green, but she follows really well and is quiet. I've never had a buck (knock on wood) or kick/bite, etc from her. My land owner has been riding her and he's a beginner rider who was brave enough to want to ride her. They're getting along well!
Also, anyone know any trainers in the area? I need someone to put 30 days on my paint mare and to get my momma mare ready for my daughter to ride.
