The few the proud the brave the Saro

We have been working on getting the fillies to cross our creek for the last week or two. Well, today Saro did it I came prepared with a rope halter, 14' lead rope and short whip. She had refused to cross while I'm on her back so figured I would try to drive her from the ground today. No need, she went down the bank with just a bit of hesitation, got to the water, JUMPED across the creek and lunged up the other side I was not prepared at all.
I stayed on but I'm sure my inner thighs will be bruised from jamming into the pommel We turned around and crossed it again....and again. Each time she was better. By the end she was stopping mid stream to take a drink
I'm so proud, she's so brave, she's such a good girl
Now on to Shiloh

Good job and good luck on Shiloh! Haha.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Got to love those milestones - good job Maureen.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

No pics darn it. My husband took some with his cell phone but there is something wrong with the memory chip, I can't get them off the phone
I'll take some next time. Tony said the leap she made was pretty to watch. Picked up both front feet and leaped

can my horse watch yours? He's still convinced that a river monster lurks in the depths every time we come to even the smallest brook. =) seriously though, that's great! What a brave little filly
