Oh yes, I'm about you bombard you with pictures that would only mean a lot to me =] mwehehehehe.
I'm just...utterly amazed. Seeing how far Sour has come in the past two years is something that I would of never expected to be this proud of. When I started out with her, she was so full of hate and confusion that I honestly didn't think I'd ever make her more than a lead-line pony that I couldn't do anything more than take a walk with, or stand by while grazing. And here we are. Her stranger agressiveness has completely vanished, and although she's often shy at first, she's madfe so
much progress. She started out as a filly that I was afraid to even lead within twenty feet of a child, to a young mare who is about to begin her first job as a driving horse!
I know. You're sitting here like 'big deal. She has a surcingle on.' but seeing that only three months ago she still wouldn't even let a female stranger near her -much less male-, wouldn't let me touch below her knee, wouldn't let ANYONE on her right side, would kick out at anything that even began to make her nervous... its a lot. A whole lot =]
ANYWHO. Her official driving equipment came in yesterday, so no more makeshift surcingle for her! We're all leathered up now ;)
I wish we could of gotten some pictures of her bridled and
surcingled, but my friend got distracted by some super cute kitties. Maybe next week ;P If all goes well, her ground-driving work should be done in about two weeks, and we'll finally get her hooked up to a cart!
OH. And theres a few extras too...like her wearing my jacket
hehe, she's starting to get her fuzzy beard!
taking off her 'training surcingle (a 46" cotton girth and a pair of reins XD yes. I'm just that cool, inventing my own stuff.)
she was totally cool with it after a good sniffing
XD I love this. She's just looking back like 'seriously?'
