Ok, here's a pic of little Ms Apache's face as she starts to shed out....;looks like she's going to have some sooty to her:) I like the line down her back too, I know it's more than likely countershading but it's so cool!
Well I had a decent weekend - rode a couple of horses, not far, but around here and there. Any saddle time is good time. Had one of those silly moments where you are riding bareback in flipflops and one falls off...then you have to get off on one foot, bounce around one-legged and get your shoe back on and then get back on your horse but then you throw off the OTHER shoe while getting up....neighbors had a good laugh. I should have charged them for the show.
Got everything planted finally - watered - corn and other stuff already coming up. Two green thumbs up over here!
Glad to see that everyone had a fun weekend. I rode my mare out on the lake trail as far as I thought she could handle it the first time out. When we got there she was acting pissy until I began tacking her up, then she settled down a little. I had to hold her back quite a bit for the first 30 minutes or so, then she began to act like a trail horse. We stayed out 3 hours and then since it was warm and she was soaked and I hosed her off when we got back. I'm proud of her for being so good. The only thing we ran into were some deer and they didn't seem to bother her maybe because they were standing still watching us. I really like the trail. Hope to get back out there next weekend.
And ... no pics! Took the camera out of my pocket and forgot to put it back.
Worked with my rescue mare, Lil, yesterday. Getting her in the horse trailer. She will walk in the 6 horse slant the humane society has without batting an eye, but a stock trailer, or my 2 horse! Not for the world! I had finally got her where I could put a butt rope on her, and a shoulder in her arse, and push her in, with great effort. And, I don't want it to be that hard all the time. Clinton Anderson method didn't work with her. It has been about 10 days, give or take, since I have worked with her, for one reason or the other. Yesterday, I put on her lead. Grab her bucket of grain, walk to the trailer, she follows me in like she's been suppose to all this time! So I let her eat for a bit, back her out, she goes right back in. I do this several times. Let her finish her grain, let her go. Don't want to push it too much. Hopefully, today will be the same! Or even, without the grain! Lol
