This is something we both agree on, they wont get there first ride until 3, and maybe even later than that.

Been a while for an update.
My two little ones are doing round pen work and pretty well I might add. My filly is in a gawky clumbsy stage right now so with her we're mostly doing ground work and simpler things since she can barely move all four feet in the same direction.

The big man is doing well, such a pretty moving little guy. I'm excited about him.

We're roundpenning little Miss again, she seems to be able to control all four feet at the same time again. She doesn't really understand the round pen but she's getting better with the help of a lunge line LOL.
Mr. Man is doing very well, he has already learned correct turning and halts.

Well the Gangly Bus came through here and ran over Trouble repeatedly. Bless his heart. He's just a mess, looks like a marshmallow on chopsticks. On the upshot, Charlie is doing better in the round pen, seems to be getting it together.

Love that you're doing this! I'm still disappointed that I didn't document my boy's training. My photo diary goes from round pen, to round pen with a saddle, straight to trail rides ): I missed the fun nonsense in between.
Enjoy! They're both adorable.

So I'm doing horses about every 2 hours...it's freakin' hot.

Here's Mr. Trouble, sporting his big boy tack. I like to start babies in a sidepull in the round pen so today was his first day flexing to a sidepull and some pre-mounting work. I'm so tempted to climb on him but DH would not approve.

Lunging under saddle! Charlie is catching on, the round pen kind of alluded her previously. They both take it in stride.
