A new incredible adventure ahead.
Not sure how it all got started, but there’s no turning back. When life is a little too good, a little too settled, it’s always best to shake things up a bit, no?
Blushing even thinking about this. Have no reasonable explanation of what sort of logic was used to make this decision. Better just come out and say it straight.
– I’ve bought a young horse. 3 years old. Not just any horse. That’d be too easy, right? Besides, don’t have the financial means to do that.
So, this is a mare that has been mostly untouched until now. Possibly just the third time wearing a halter the day I went out to see her the first time. Here we are. Meeting for a minute.
She tolerated some brief touching. That’s about all.
We’re both completely set up for failure. Lovely. Stories starting like this usually do not end well. Somehow, I hope to make her a good riding horse. Do dressage with her. This will be very educational. For me, she’ll be just fine as she is.
To avoid complete failure, immediate blemishes, a bruised ego, and immediate death I’ve had her lightly handled before getting on the trailer. A short couple of weeks in a round pen with lunging, saddling, light backing one time for 5 seconds.
She looked very stressed out about it all the second time I saw her… Will show you pictures later.
Today, just a body shot from the first visit.
Hope to have you along for this adventure. May the snickering begin!
Hoping she will be as polite about introductions as Jaworzno is.
