a Mare in heat is a pain

but Aeolea is still a heat a bit because she is reacting to us very differently (I am enough of a stallion compared to Sam the gelding and Gav) Tonigth she let me halter her and work with her for the first time is several days.

Hopefully we will be able to get her loaded and unloaded ona trailer so she can ride over here rather than walk all the way. if she can be trailered then she esp will make the trip a lot better but her last trip int he hands of the soon to be former owner was traumatic so if she rides in a trailer I expect I will have to ride over with her. Sam looks like we could ride him tomorrow if we really wanted too

the horses were pushing things a bit today since i had no been there or worked with them in awhile and they kept trying to push me back in between them so as to keep the herd together....

we realy did not get much done but it was good to see hear and feel the horses

back with my horses

weel on today's workout

Aeolae allowed gav to put on the halter today and accept the lead, guess she wanted to join the fun we had had with samwise the last few days. so we had 2 horses lead by 2 people wandering around their current paddock with no real problem

near the end something spooked Aeolae and broke free from my wife and started to run back to her shelter then stopped looked a bit sheepish and acted afaid we going to be mad at her her for getting spooked so I gave sam to to gav and went after Aeolae myself got hold of her lead and lead her around some more then we lead them back to feed them ( a favorite part of this exercise go figure) used a few "equine reinforcement units (pepomint lifesavers) to reinforce the fact they like us already

it is hard to believe we have been dealing with these guys for less then 2 weeks and that they were close to being put down

a use piece piece of hardware

I fnd I am become quite attached to the horses

After all what boys does not dream of a owning a hrose as a kid it is a pretyy vain dream for most city bred boys as myself but here in the far north it seem we have that chance this first winter is going going to be a bit tough since we will be diverting much of our spare resources.
the horses are were free but feeding them and outfitting them is something else. they have been somewhat abused and neglected in the past and we will do our best for them but of course if you are reading this and spare them something to help out
