Good Morning, Friends!
Our Winter was long and cold and the pasture took it’s time thawing! Footing was poor, progress was delayed! Of course, I believe everything happens in its proper order and time. I’ve been involved with horses long enough, and seen the seasonal changes enough, that I have become philosophical! I always seem to catch up and it is all good!
These are times that can be maximized in their own way. I took the time to hang out, groom, give TTouch sessions, and just enjoy. Whiskey was a great help being Big Brother! while taking charge. When the shoer came, Whiskey was Mr. Solid while Elvis was curious about everything! Gratefully, my shoer is very tolerant, Elvis got the elbow just once!
There were a few of us that got weanlings at the same time, a project with a built in support system of friends! Laura Sanchez, one of the peeps, came to visit and we had fun playing! I had familiarized him with the halter, so we were able to slip it on and get it adjusted.
We cooled him down a bit on this hot day, did some leading, and called it good. He was scheduled to go into the training barn the next week, at Angela Tanner’s, to start building his skill base, get gelded, and after gelding care.
