Hey all! My name's Rachel. I'm currently living in Nebraska, but my horses are in Colorado and I'll be moving back there next year. I used to go back every weekend, but since they're both going into training within the next year, I'm trying to save money by staying in Nebraska as much as possible. But... I'm going stir crazy. I joined here thinking I could use my sudden plethora of free time to learn as much as I can. :)
I have two horses, Ziggy and Bandit. Both are BLM Mustangs.
Bandit is two years old and comes from Wyoming. I adopted him from the Canon City prison when was a yearling. He's a bit of a character, to put it mildly. Bandit's hobbies include destroying objects large and small, sticking his head anywhere and everywhere it can (and can't) fit, and touching electric wires.
Ziggy is our newbie. I adopted him in April up in Bridgeport, Nebraska. He's six years old and has a very nice gentle soul about him. He's also afraid of his own shadow, though he's getting better. Ziggy's going to a trainer sometime in the next month to finish the gentling process and get him fully halter broke. Then it'll be back for saddle training in February or March.
Sorry if the pictures are too big. I can't figure out how to make them any smaller. Anyway, I can't wait to get to know y'all better! <3
