We turned out our horses in the arena together for the first time ever while the fields were harrowed. They ran around a bit a first, but after a few minutes with some hay and scritches, they settled in quite nicely! I sat outside of the arena for three hours supervising - making sure a certain pony didn't fence crawl, especially. |
I managed to get lots of video, catch up on my reading, and break my sunglasses (I sat on them!).
I'm sure you recognize Otis, but most of you probably don't know the other two. Toby is the black morgan cross, and he's our pasture pet (unrideable due to bad training and an incident of physical abuse, the poor boy...). Rose is the chestnut off-track thoroughbred, and she's my sister's greenie; she spent a few years growing up in the pasture and working on the ground, and she's starting her training under saddle this summer.
