Cowboy - Ted's 'therapy' horse, meaning the horse he goes to ride to just relax! Cowboy is getting a short daily ride from Sam (our most inexperienced rider of the bunch), because there's nobody like Cowboy to build some confidence.
Flint - from Lost Juniper Ranch (Carol and Rick Brand). Check out how soft he is; not to mention drop dead gorgeous! Sixteen hands of beautiful.....
Smokey - I am loving having her here! I have been riding her almost every day for the last week- ten days. She and Flint went to town the last three days as we had noticed that she was overly concerned about vehicles particularly at highway speeds (imagine how that could be being raised in Oreana!). She also didn't love unfamiliar barking dogs - both issues thoroughly addressed along with trains, town noises, etc. etc.
Even with that extra weight she can out travel any other horse here right now!
|Isn't she photogenic? I think it's a bay thing.|
Beth has added MJ to her current working list - lots of fun. Beth and MJ are a great match, work well together. Beth loves a horse that is always calm but can be really athletic (without any of that 'reactive Arabian stuff!'. LOL) MJ is actually registered paint breeding stock but very AQHA bred. She is a little girl, only 13.3 hands and four years old this spring. I will try to post training MJ updates as I get more photos of her.
