Camo's New Thread:)
Will anyone follow this? I don't know? But why am I doing this? So I can see her progress. written down somewhere:) ha
Okay. I know. I Know. I already had a thread about Camo started. But it was way outdated. and I was tooo lazy to go find itt lol. So I found a picture of Camo when She was 4 months.. A little after having her for 3 months. She is so adorable.. IMHO.:) So lets start off by what we WERE learning.:)
1 month with in getting her.. halter broke. and people friendly( no very social when first got)http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/y...9/PIC_2727.jpg
worked on being tied. and feet for the next while.. and I forget the rest between now and recent:)
Well skip ahead..
She was born july 13th at night or july 14th in the early morning.. so that makes her.. UMMM WOW.. a year and 2 months?
I can do the following with her..
-shes been trimmed( farrier said she was one of the best yearlings he had done)
-bathes.( the water near her legs scares her a little)
-walks over tarps
-can put a tarp over her
-HALTER BROKE>> no duh.
can touch her anywhere
she has the most trust with me
um.. fly spray
I can touch inside her mouth
UMM.. Im sure there is more but I cant think..
OH she isnt scared of the saddle of the saddle pad
So far so good..
I took her on her first ponying trip with Poncho as our leader.. I feel as if she is more comfy with him then Sunny.. Because he walks so much slower and relaxes easlier. She was very good. Everyonce and a while.. she would get the sudden urge to stop.. and pull agaist my pig boy.. bad IDEA.. he IS stronger.. and DID just drag( not bad) her along one of 2 steps until she got the idea. LOL. We also trotted a good 10 15 minutes.. as she didnt get much exercise this summer.. she was out on pasture.. so she is a HUGE yearling.. IMO.. LOL
thanks for reading
good luck thank you for the pics
Oh, she is so pretty! I am currently raising a foal also. It is such a rewarding experience!
Alright I have some recent pictures of her:)http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/y...k/PIC_3281.jpg
She is getting on the chunky side:)
Okay enough for now:) ha.. she is doing really well in all of her training.. go her to lunge a little. and teaching her to stand patient! she needs some more.. but doing well!
Shes doing awesome :) Keep up what you're doing, and she'll be broke before you even put her through her first ride! :lol:
Im starting to like ground driver her as well.. and get vertical bend:) and sideways bend.. working out good.. she is smartt!
I hope she's easier to ground drive than Indie was, my girl had the attention span of a gnat! She'd be inclined to just randomly start walking in a completely different direction :rofl:
Okay Im going to my sisters this morning. But when I get home I want to work with camo for a little bit on ground driving and probably pony her a little with Poncho.
Do you guys think that its still damaging to have a nylon saddle SET on her back.. not like cinched or anything? just like set on her back and then taken off??
