    Foal
    Update
    I have been at the stable, and there are two horses there right now, a geldling and one mare. (I misunderstood that there was two or three mares) The mare is some kind of arab horse, not the slim type, more robust, and the geldling is some kind of welsh, once again my memory fail me.
    They will build a custom size box for Baybe, and another for the foal when the time is right.
    They are were suporting people, that had a two stables with more then 30 horses before, and their own riding house (erm...indoor riding area, once again, translation fail) But now they have sized down, sold the place, and moved to a smaller place. So it is a calm, small stable, with horse experts that have delivered a lot of foals, and the husband has cattle.

    I have some photos, but stupid tinypic does not work right now -.-

    Smile yoh

    Hello again
    Well things have been somewhat good. I learned from the last owner that the owner before her (horse born in USA, sold to Netherlands and then to sweden, and later to me) the owner in netherlands got her as a yearling, ut did not take good care of her at all, so she is half wild, and does not trust humans 100%, I am working on her but it will take some time I'm afraid. She has also gotten into the BAD habbit of leaving the pasture...she is so small, she just crawls out from the fence...and there are trafficed, heavily so, roads just outside...it has at times gotten me verry worried...I don't want to lose her to an accident. I am trying to drain her energy as often as I can with long walks, to make her feel more pleased with being in the pasture.

    Also the stable where I have her right now is demanding insanely alot of money, and not all the service I need, so I am moving her to a better stable, with full service, three times as large...umm...box? O_o you know what I mean, I just fail at translating it. Anyway, the stable there is better, and CHEAPER then the "almost half service" that demands 100dollars more.

    What more....I had her loose in a padock, and she followed me around, and walked over some small loggs when I did, I really liked the connection we had there. I have taught her a trick - to spin around in a circle, we have been on long walks and I have started working with her patience and mannors...it is going slowly as I mentioned, but things have already improved. I just ordered two winterblankets, one nylon halter, one leather halter and one show halter, along with some hoof oil, and skin softening cream for furred animals, because she has skin snowflakes - quite badly, from her stomach and neck. I also bought a few foal thingys, including a foal blanket and foal halter.

    I am looking forward to the foal, and hope it is a tobiano filly. If I can afford them both we will have to wait and see, they are so small so maybe I can cut a deal with the stable owner.

    Soooo...that is where I am right now. Noone said that a life in your care was easy, but somehow it makes me happy...she is a little broken just like me, and we understand eachother quite well, and both of us are just as stuborn. One way or the other, I think I got the right "first horse" although if the previous owner had actually MENTIONED that she had some behavour problems, then I would not have bought her. She was just described as "calm, friendly, uncomplicated and trouble free, cheap in food etc" nothing about her having a history or problems.

    Well...that was quite some update, ne?
