I love it so much. It's so sweet.
How is everyone's baby's doing now that they have been around for a month or more.
I love it. Melody is always so happy to see me. she nickers when she sees me outside. Her mama is such a great relaxed mama.
I try to take them for a walk every day. I have some obstacles in my arena. Her mama are great at them, so its a great example for Mel. She walked over a bridge and poles yesterday.
What do you all do with your mama and baby.
I have found some small deflated balls that I have put in the stall with them. sometimes, during planting season, I throw one of those cardboard trays in the stall. I did buy a jolly ball and put in the out door pasture.
She is super at letting me pick her feet from one side~you know the racehorse way or the natural horseman way. Of course I do her mama's first.
I have hosed off mama and spray Mel (by accident~not). She isn't quite sure about it, the feeling of being wet is new to her too.
I'm just trying to give her as many experiences as I can.
Can you ride your mare (at the walk) and have the baby follow?
