The safe sound of them eating their hay. Part of their allure, the noises they make.
Breathing, blowing, chewing, waiting dragons. Heavy hooves thumping in the stalls.
Somehow always watching, relaxing, waiting, but constantly at the ready at the same time. Bellowing rib cages moving back and forth as they breathe.
This weekend Valiosa and I will walk out these doors at Dorado Andaluz… And we will be. All on our own.
I hope to have a lot of fun with her at home at Blue Horse Farm. Can’t wait to see where she’ll be after some months under saddle with me!
Sharing her progress here is so much fun – and I love it that you’re checking in on us! She will grow up to a great training partner. Promising to keep updates short enough to read quickly.
First off for her – a couple of months of “fattening.” She’s looking much too angular. Easy work, lots of hay and grass, and there’ll be some curves to show off.
This week – touch on canter under saddle. Really hope to have a ridden picture for you after Friday.
