    This is my first official 'My Horse'! She's just a yearling right now, but is threatening to grow big! She's like a big puppy dog most of the time, until she sees the fly spray :| Her eyes are irritated by the flies at the moment.

    Quote:LMAO how ever did you guess? That pic was taken after the first ten minutes of trying to catch her. Believe me I need luck! My first horse was a colt my husband gave me that neither of us could get anywhere with, so we sent him to a professional and he told us outright he didn't like him! After 6 months here with nobody wanting to ride him, we've lent him to a friend who...doesn't like him either!

    Lovely girl... she looks like she'll be fun. She has the chestnut mare thing goin on [​IMG]

    Can you get a mask on her if the flies are bothering her? Or roll-on fly repellent if she doesn't like spray bottles yet? Dunno what it is with babies and spray stuff... I think it's one of those universal 'DO NOT LIKE' baby things...

    Also- hate to nitpick- but just because she's a yearling and hard to catch doesn't mean you can skimp on hoofcare... from what I can see her feet look a little long and unbalanced. [​IMG]

    Quote:We're not skimping, she's not at the feet picking up stage yet! She spent the first year of her life on the range here, so it's baby steps. Unfortunately the same goes for fly masks and roll-on; she just has to smell fly repellent and she blows up. She's fine with a halter, but not fine with having a lead rope attached or removed while she's wearing it [​IMG]

    Very pretty horse. Unless she was from a wild mustang herd, why was she "on the range?"
