Snickers was not thrilled with my first day of work today. When I got there after work, she had pulled the fly masks, leadropes and halters through the fence into her paddock...lol.

It's been a little over a week since really riding. I started my new job, finally this week, so I've been adjusting my life to that....and so have the horses...lol.

I was worried that Snicker's 'noodles' would be off again. I lunged her in the roundpen before riding to see. She is the same....so that is a good thing....no better, but no worse. So, I went on to ride her today. We took a ride around the ranch and then to the arena to work on loping. Her going into the lope is getting smoother and not as animated. She also isn't anticipating my asking like before. We ended the day with a smooth lope of a few strides and she is picking up speed now!!

Found this picture someone else took of us at the parade....

She is such a beautiful horse and you have her in wonderful condition
Do you know her breeding at all?

Lol...she came from a place that reminded me of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre....but it's all good, because apparently the girl rescued her dam from a feedlot while she was in foal with Snickers. Snickers was born on her property and her name was Snooki....um, no...didn't keep the name...lol.

I was told that her sire was a black and white spotted draft with fresian in him and her dam was a buckskin paint crazy mare. I trim her 'wannabe' feathering off.

That's all I can go on. She is only 14.1hh....so who knows. I work hard at keeping her weight where it is. She is an EXTREMELY easy keeper.:)

They are easy keepers that's for sure.
How do you manage her weight? Do you stable her part of the dy/night or is she happy to stand on a starvation patch?

Well, my horses are both fine with what they get pretty much. I open their pasture every other day for them to munch on. They get half the hay that the light horses on the ranch get and then their high fat mix.

I also try to exercise them or ride them almost daily.

They are not destructive really and pretty patient horses. Snickers will occasionally pull the halters, fly masks and lead ropes through the gate that they hang on, but that's about it. They will hang out at the fence line with the gelding next to them too that adore's the girls. Keeps them entertained.
