Went to the barn today! Today was the first time I've been since Sunny has been put in the pasture. I went to get her and from afar I could not tell which horse she was because she's pastured with four other chestnut mares! I almost grabbed a Quarter Horse who definitely isn't mine.

I originally planned to work her in the round pen, but when I got her out she's was pretty spooky about her surroundings so I decide to walk her around the property a few times to help her adjust. She had two main spooks: the wash rack and (gasp)ponies! I promised her that they may be evil Shetlands but they didn't eat Thoroughbreds, but she just wouldn't listen.

By the third trip around the barn she had really settled down so I put her back in the pasture with her quadruplets.

Overall a good day!

Had a GREAT day at the barn today!
I got Sunny out of the pasture and led her around the circle a few times before bringing her into the barn. She was a little balky and a touch spooky. I then groomed her before I took her out to the arena and saddled her. We walked around the arena a few times and let her smell the jumps and things and also worked on her whoa on the lead line since she was getting a little pushy.
We came back into the barn after a while and she got her first bath at the new barn! She was a little princess about it all, too. It was only the second bath of her life!

So proud of her.

Just thought I would add some (crappy)pictures from the day at the barn yesterday!

Sort of a conformation shot.



Doing some leading work in the ring.



After her bath!

Just got back from the barn! Had a pretty productive day. Finally got her in the round pen and we worked on some major basics since she had never been in a round pen before. I mainly focused on getting her to stay out on the circle, but I also mover her up to the trot a couple times. She did very good.
After the pen I put her in the wash rack and rinsed her over really quick. She was much more antsy this time and didn't want me to rinse her rear end.

Overall a pretty good day!

Been awhile since I updated. Sunny is doing great. I had her under saddle for the longest time so far a few weeks ago and she was an angel. She has still never tried to act up. She was surely a diamond in the rough when I first got her. Everyone is amazed at how pretty(and big!) she has gotten over the years. Here are some pictures from the other day!

Great job, she looks awesome. Do you have any pictures of her when you first got her?

I had some great ones of her that showed how wonky she was, but we lost them when we moved. I think my BF has some, so I need to check his computer!

Found a great comparison picture!

The first was taken just a few weeks ago, and if I am not mistaken she was just turning two in the second picture. Told you she used to be wonky!

Wow great job you have done with her. Was she bred for racing? Or just someone who breeds thoroughbreds?
