I wanted to start a journal since I'm just about to take over the reins with my new horse Cascade from her trainer. I'm going to be pretty religious at least initially about writing down what is working and what is not, so I can identify patterns.
Here is our story.
I adopted Cascade last year in May at a BLM mustang adoption. She was five years old, and at her very last chance to be adopted. I did not go into the adoption thinking I would come away with a big drafty dark chestnut roan, but sometimes life surprises you that way.
If you want to read more about the adoption, here's the thread I started as it was happening. Adopting a Mustang
I'm going out to see Cascade on the 19th. On that day the vet is coming out and we're going to sign the paperwork so she'll officially be mine! I'm also looking at saddles this weekend to bring out and try on her.
I had more fun than I probably should have shopping for all her grooming supplies.
Here are the things I still need.
A long lead rope
A training stick
Supplies for a vet kit
I'll take them one at a time. I still have until at least August until she is with me in DC.
I'll post pictures from the visit on the 19th. I go saddle shopping tomorrow!
