Day 2

The horses did awesome today!   They are now leading like champs.  We loaded them in and out of the trailer for their second time, jumped them over barrels, and started working on their lunging!  Mr. has been doing absolutely fabulous and has been following me around like a puppy dog all day long.

I asked him to got over the barrels...

...and what to you know he went over them!  No problem jumping!  We'll make a  jumper out of him soon enough! 
Mr. No-name jumping the barrels for me.  He's really nice and collected when he jumps, I think he'd make a great jumper or dressage horse when he's older!

Working on desensitizing him a little bit more.  I'm getting him used to me reaching down to pick up his little hooves.

We went for a little walk to check out all the new sights and smells for my little Mr.

He stands patiently all the while being tied to the fence.

Conformation shot, he really is a stunning little horse!

Didn't take any pictures of him loading into the trailer today, but he's a picture of Day  #1's loading session!
My little bay is doing fabulous!  He's quite a horse!  Really smart and quick to move


  1. Wow Michelle! You are doing FABULOUS with Mr! Is he moving faster along in training then your last one did? He sure is a looker! What are you going to name him? Good luck in this! I'm sure you and Abby will do great! I'm routing for both of you!

  2. Thanks Jessi! He is moving along A LOT faster than my last one! Thanks I have no idea what I'm going to name all..Mister is sort-of like a temporary name while I sort through names...right now it's down to like Paul Revere, Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer or Chief I think...but I'm still not sure! Looking for the perfect name for such a stunning horse.
