Kini got Saddled!




Here is my beautiful little girl hanging out with a saddle on! There is no doubt in my mind now that she was trained in her past. The saddle didn't faze her AT ALL, it was like i had done it for years. This really gives me hope that i will be able to rehab her into a lovely horse for a VERY lucky person. She was even following me around the round pen, and making hard to take her picture... i couldn't get away from her! lol She even nickers at me when i walk into the pasture... oh she melts my heart!

SMALLER is better!

I worked with a VERY randy miniature horse stud today. i was at a ranch working a lady's full sized Arab and she was trying to show her mini to a potential buyer. Well, he was FREAKING out because of the mares next door so she called me over to the area to deal with him (she is sick so she couldn't) I started lunging him, and had her set up jumps. I worked with him for almost an hour! But it was so much fun.

I want a mini horse.

quick post....

Just wanted to "brag" about my Kini! I brought her out today(she does awesome coming through the gates!) and decided to spend a couple minutes tossing the saddle pad on her back. Well, when i first swung it at her she shook a little but stood her ground. By the second or trird time she almost look bored by it! I "smacked" her all over with the pad, on the neck, back, butt, under her belly, between the legs... she was a champ! So i brough out my little english saddle and did the same thing, and same reaction! She has DEFINETLY been through all this before... i just think her bigest hurdle is learning to trust people. After i spend some time with her she starts to rest her head on me, but it still wary.

I just love this little mare! I hope i can find the PERFECT home for her when i am done with her training. If not... she can stay :)
