Oh no, so very sorry. She was so beautiful!
Thank you everyone. It has been hard. She was our unexpected (August instead of March/April) foal that came at a time when we needed her. It is hardest when I go out to feed and she isn't there with her head over the gate waiting, or nickering for her food.
Presto seems to be all healed up from his gelding now, so I'm breathing a little easier. Anything medical makes me so nervous with this horse, given his history! I need to get some actual conformation pictures of him at some point soon, but here he is standing in the barn aisle a couple days ago.
And with my other horse before a ponying session. Both of their expressions are so accurate.
Mine apparently forgot they had already eaten
and typical peyton… lol
Presto’s looking great, @txgray! Starting to grow into himself a bit for sure. How tall is he now?
I love those two @Lopinslow
I think we might be the last of all us to get to it, but I saddled Hero! A little bit of fun and then she settled right down like a champ
So sorry to hear that.
Naked Kahlua! Got to body clipping her since we’ll be preforming at Midwest Horse Fair in April again for the buckskin breed demo. I’m so happy with how she’s been maturing and can’t wait to show her under saddle this year. We’re planning to hit the ranch shows next year, as all the rules state they can only be shown ranch classes 3+ years old.
He stalled for the winter at a hair over 15.3h, but when I sticked him the other day (when I was looking at him going "hmmm... you look growthy again") he was just a hair under 16h now. He's definitely ramping up for another growth spurt, he looks different every day. I'm hoping he'll wait for the official 16h mark until after he turns 2, though. We shall see.Not holding my breath on that one. Right now he's still on track to finish around 17h, which is a little bigger than I prefer!
Thats a big baby!
Last week Presto long-lined and ground drove in a bit for the first time. All at the walk, just with basic turn left, turn right, and whoa/go, and he seemed to understand really quickly. So yesterday I decided to do it again, but this time out in our big jump field. When we got out there I put him on a regular lunge circle first for a couple laps each way to get his brain working, then I hooked up the long lines and we went for a spin! He was perfect, the steering works pretty well and the brakes are great.
