Oh goodness, Bubbles (The ten year old "baby" >.>) is SO nicely bred and SO gorgeous. I want to bring her home so bad, and I would LOVE to get April back into shape more and show her lightly. She would be such a good backup horse for Selena.
As for tagging along....I was worried she was going to kick but it became apparant that as long as she could be with April she was fine. We tried "Weaning" her while we were there and the baby totally panicked. We put her in some seperate fencing and she tore through it. We tried putting them in stalls next to each other and the baby almost stuck her leg through a panel O.O So we let them go...Bubbles DESPERATELY needs a round pen with solid, tall walls and to be worked. We figure it we get the option we can lead April in with her, then lead her out and trap Bubbles and get her to work until she respects us and will let us near her. She's curious, just never been outside that pasture. I've never had an experience like this before so I'm just throwing stuff around right now...There's someone who I haven't talked to in year who used to half a lot of experience gentling mustangs, and I feel like that is pretty similar so I'm trying to get ahold of her.
Bubbles was never even registered....But here's the parents in case you guys wanted to see:
April's Ped: April O Ghost Paint
Junior (Sire's) Ped: El Gato Dun It Quarter Horse
We filled out the registration papers when we were up there, we picke the name "Gata Bubble Gun".
The sire of the baby was SO talented and all his siblings went on to do SO well. If I remember right his full sister showed at the NRHA Derby and placed fifth, another sister showed at worlds...The El Gato Uno babies were AMAZING but just fell into the wrong hands. They just excelled at everything...Reining, cutting, roping, barrels. I LOVED that stud. I used to visit the farm he was at when I was little. He's old, grey, and infertile now. :/
Sorry for the ramble...LOL.
Oh and to answer previous question for equiniphile, Bubbles would FREAK whenever the halter was brought near her. We tried for the amount of time we were there with little progress. Only so much we can do with what we had. :/ Good thing April isn't a kicker. She's had that baby attached to her hip since she was born....Fingers crossed my grandpa takes our offer to take them...
