starting work qith QH filly

figured this would be a good place to log the work I do with her ... mostly so I can remember


Friday 1/31 -- ~1 hour
I put a saddle on her and led her around the pasture

She started acting up when we got near the fenceline where the neighbors horses are

Took the lead line and swatted her on the butt and made her yield hind quarters -- 3-4 circles and her attention was back on me

She did good overall

Also picked her feet
-- was really surprised she let me do that

Saddle horn was useful to wrap the lead rope around so she was not focusing on eating grass while I was making her stand still to pick her feet

Need to get a farrier out for a trim

got her out walking yesterday on a lead again (no saddle) -- maybe for 45 minutes

She did better --- less acting up near the other horses

had fun catching and walking her this past sunday

The other 2 horses were running around like crazies, kicking and bucking and having fun --- she kept stopping and neighing and once or twice tried to run through me

So I would smack her butt with the lead rope and get her spinning around and paying attention to me -- had a few tug-o-war sessions that I had to make sure I won

Took me 20 minutes to get her the 300-400 yards to the barn

barn is in the pasture close to the house ... they just happened to be on the far side near the neighbors horses

So letting them go is easy ... just unclip their leads and walk away

well ... crap ... might have to take a few weeks off

Just found out Dixie kicked Whiskey (the young qh filly) through a barbwire fence

Horse seems ok --- daughter got a few scratches on her face -- nothing serious -- but going to leave the horse alone for a while and keep an eye out for anything that looks off

Looks like I will spend my saturday fixing the fence

daughter was feeding them treats at the fence -- whiskey got her head between the top and middle strand of barbwire trying to get more, dixie pinned her ears, whiskey did not moved fast enough, so dixie kicked whiskey in the butt and sent her the rest of the way through the fence

Treats will now be banned at my house
