Bridling Stubert

Stubert is now being bridled, and learning about the bit. Much to Berry’s dismay (I imagine), I just borrowed her bridle, because frankly, it was the easiest thing to do. And if there’s one thing I like, it’s things being easy. As he’s only 2 and a half, with a birthday in June, so I’m […]

Stubert in Baby Horse Training

Stubert is getting worked with just every other day now. Nothing excessive, just groundwork and manners.

Here is Stu’s sire, the […]

Weanling Walk

Over the weekend we did Weanling Walk 2: The Reckoning. Weanling Walk 1 is here.  Weanling Walk 2 ended up being much better! Who would have thought a sequel would have been better than the original?!  This time, I stuck a camera similar to a GoPro on my head and recorded the whole thing. The […]

We planned this weekend to get the babies trailer loading. That didn’t go to plan. But, one thing I’d learned with horses is doing some ambitious plan will force me what we need to work on.  In this case, we were walking them up to the trailer, through the big field that the horses are […]
