Most/all/some of ya'll may have seen it on FB, but I put halter on Kit yesterday, I've put it on her several times, but haven't put any pressure to lead or anything. BUt yesterday, started that process. She didn't like it at first, but gradually accepted it. finally figured out when she pulled backwards, and I didn't yield, to stop. Turn with gentle pressure. Finally I got her to follow mom some, then I gradually moved her out where she would walk out with me, not following mom. I've got her a little creep feeder set up. She's eating mom's food, so I figured it's time. she found it real quick. Glutton, like her momma, 2 & 4 legged! lol

Can I just say I still love the fact that you named her Kit? You are sooo gonna love raising that baby. I've loved working with Henny. I honestly much prefer teaching them something new than reteaching them something. It's like working with a feral horse but they're cuter and aren't terrified of humans!

nuisance instead of wasting your time trail riding and doing all those other things you should come down here and help me teach this wanna be racehorses, or bucking broncos, they could go either way I suspect, to lead!!!!!
These 3 foals do nothing but run and play then sleep.
Kemah by Starlight is Ok with me. I have no other names planned.
kctop I just have those old fashioned manners drilled into my head that one should never call before 9 in the morning, during the dinner hour, or after 9 at night. Coupled with the work ethic about not taking personal calls at work that leaves me a only a few hours a day.
HTH did people communuicate just 10-15 years ago? Shalom

Don't worry DBA, I'm the same way when it comes to calling people. I never call them early, late or during work hours unless it's an emergency! So what are you going to call little Lone Star Dancer? You call her momma Dancer, right?

kctop I call her the bay filly. I will retain the two fillies for a couple of years to see if I want them to replace their dams. So I guess I need to call them something besides what colour they are. Magic though needs to find a home with a very nice horseloving person that will smother him with attention and lives close by so I can visit. HINT HINT. I think he will be very stunning when he is grown and will make a very nice show horse. Or a fancy eyecatching trail horse. Nuisance are you listening? Shalom

Anyone near here heard of Indian Spirit Springs Ranch in Bryan? I just found out about them yesterday. They've got about 800 acres of trail riding available for $10 a half day and potties and hookups. Never heard of them and they are practically in my back yard. They are closer than driving to the forest to ride (for me the forest and a loaded trailer is about an hour one way) and the next closest is 7IL ranch in Hempstead - even further and more $.

I'm going to try to work a visit into my schedule and go check them out. As much as I love distance riding, it just isn't economical to have to trailer out someplace (need a minimum of 10 miles of trail not repeating or I get bored) to ride at least 3 times a week. Figured out it costs me about $20 per trip to the forest. This place will be a little less and I'll have more time to ride b/c I won't be using up my riding time just driving.

All of my endurance shirts are faded and very religious looking. I need new tshirts! That's the whole point of endurance riding ya know.....

I would take Magic in a heartbeat if I could but sadly I can not. Although, I will work on my other friends so he can stay close:))))) Bay filly needs to be clled by a name, not just bay filly.....
