Wow thanks you guys so much! I can't wait to see what yearling I get either! If you guys want to make guesses on what gender the yearling will be, and color, that would be fun ;) I was going to put that in my last post, but I completely spaced it! There's technically only one more day until we go pick the yearling up. (I can't wait until I can say he or she.."the yearling" is getting annoying.) I'll go to school tomorrow and then come home. We leave in the morning at 7! I can't wait!

We got some stuff done today. After school I ran to D&B and got some equine junior feed, hopefully that will help him/her put on weight and develop a nice coat before competition. I also got a bucket that hangs on the round pen panels. I probably need to buy another one.. Anyways that will be his water bucket. I'll feed on the ground or from a haynet, it depends on the weather. I also picked up the sturdiest rope halter I could find. Hopefully it fits! *fingers crossed* My mare (the bay) was so curious about what was going on! They both followed me around everywhere. It was so cute.

Oh goodness I would love that, I've always wanted a black horse. But as long as he/she is healthy, I will be happy with whichever yearling I get :)

So make guessed guys! Maybe one of you will be right!

I'm guessing it'll be a.....spotted filly..lol

I can tell you're excited about it and I'm looking forward to reading your blog as you progress....

Good luck, and above all, have fun...

No idea on gender/color, but definitely subbing to read about this. I'm debating on doing one of the mustang makeovers within the next two or three years. Do they not require a 12x12 shelter with the 20x20 outdoor pen? I could've swore that was a requirement, which is why I didn't grab a colt last year.

Woohoo more guesses! I have about 15 friends guessing too! This will be fun :) It's about 9:30 right now and I am jumping around because I am so excited. I got everything finished today. The pen he/she will be in is ready to go, and the trailer is hooked up. We leave at 6:30 tomorrow morning. I also got a chance to ride my mare for the first time in a few days and it was amazing. I feel a little bad about getting another horse because I feel like she will be.. I'm not even sure what word to use. (She's just that type of mare.) I'm sure everything will be okay though! Anyways I have four different halters, two rope and two nylon, so we can make sure that the one we put on the yearling fits. I also put some buckets in the tack room of the trailer. Anything else you think I will need? I don't want to forget anything.

I think I am going to go insane before we even get this yearling o.o I should just go to bed, although I don't think I will be able to sleep. Right now I'm feeling more nervous than excited, but I'm sure that will go away when the yearling is home and in the pen. Also the farrier comes out tomorrow! I'm going to post some more photos, hope you like them! (Oh and one has me laying on my mare, she really is just amazing. I love her more than I can even explain.)

I don't think the required a 12x12 shelter for this one, but they did require a 400 square foot corral. I copied the text from the rules and regulations so you can see:

"Facility can consist of a corral/paddock/stall/round pen. Facility must be a
Minimum of 400 square feet (i.e. 20’ x 20’ or 10’ x 40’, etc.) and have fences at least 5 feet high. You must provide shelter from inclement
Weather and temperature extremes for your Mustang. Shelters must be a two-sided structure with a roof, well drained, adequately ventilated and accessible to the Mustang. The minimum two sides need to block the prevailing winds and need to protect the major part of the bodies of the horse. Tarps are not acceptable."


So far the guesses we have for colors/gender are:

Black w/ two white socks - Colt
Spotted - Filly
Sorrel w/ star - Colt
Buckskin w/ blaze and sock - Filly
Grey w/ blaze - Filly
Bay Paint - Filly
Grey Paint - Colt
Completely Bay - Colt


I won't include my friends because I don't remember their guesses.
