Hi guys, I managed to pick up an amazing QH x ASH 3yo filly from a not so horsey friend of mine. She is just wasting away in his paddock, and seems to be making a habit of escaping (he has a couple of strands of electric wire around the yard but its usually off). So he asked if I wanted her - as he knows I would give her a good home so after some puppy dog eyes to the OH she is on her way here as soon as we can get her float trained and started. We have been working with her all week to get her under saddle. So far we are at saddle is on stage and long reining, she has mastered turning, stopping and leads with no trouble, she is just so obliging and sweet and Lee has been wonderful starting her and teaching me what he is doing and why. Tomorrow we tackle the riding! Here are some pics! hmm I wonder whats on the agenda for today http://s255.photobucket.com/albums/hh128/radavison/?action=view¤t=LeesCamera648.jpg[IMG] first ever saddle - not so sure about it [IMG]http://s255.photobucket.com/albums/hh128/radavison/?action=view¤t=LeesCamera651.jpg phew that wasn't so hard although I think she looks a bit devillish in the last one. She doesn't have a name - her ma's name is Milly, and she has been called 'Milly's filly' all her life so I think she needs a new one I was thinking Matilda or Tilly for short? Kinda sticks with the theme? What do you guys think?
