Proud of Our kids and Our Mustangs

So we set up an obstacle course and had the kids take their mustangs through it. I am so proud of our kids, and of our mustangs. I feel that did a wondeful job with them. My youngest stepson is ver timid and shy around the horses, he was charged up about doing this with Prancer that he begged me to help him do it the next day. This is wonderful, he has not shown much interest in the horses until now. I hope that Prancer has gotten to him. Brady and Blue.

Carson and Prancer. Shawn was so proud of him.

Leah and Salem. Many of you know that we got Salem from Amanda last summer, and she had never done anything like this with him. Salem loves Leah so much that he did everything she asked without any hestition at all.We are working some huge things for the EMM, so no updates on Cougar or Stunner. SHHH its a big secret. lol.

I have always tried to stay out of the damn drama and games that people play, but it seems that everytime I open myself up and think I have a close friend, I get a sharp pain in my back and sure enough it has happened again. I am sick of this.

I guess that is why I love my horses so much, they are honest about their feelings and don't play these petty little childish games. A horse is honest with you all the time, you know where you stand with them. You dont' have to worry about any of this crap.

One of my TRUE close friends always tells me that she is going to crawl under a rock and become a hermit, and I can understand why she feels that way. I am at that point right now, thank God for a loving husband or else I would go nuts.

I love my mustangs but due to all the crap and harrassment I have received in the past 5 years from other mustang people, I am sad to say, I do not plan on ever attending another adoption event. I have had horses my entire life, and I have never seen another more petty, revengeful, vidicative group of people any where. This is so sad, the only ones that suffer are the mustangs.

Just imagine what good us mustang people could do if we would unite instead of wasting all our energy attacking each other.

Ransom Update

I was recently informed that someone is worried about Ransom being skinny. Ransom has only been here for a total of 39 days. This is Ransom at the adoption.

This is Ransom in Amanda's trailer on the way home.
Ransom at home. He was just unloaded out of the trailer.

This was exactly 8 days here. As you can see he is slowly starting to fill out. His hips are not sunk in nearly as bad. This was last week, I didn't want to post it,but you can see he is looking better all the time.
Today, first time in yard. Yes he is dirty, but it has been raining daily here, we close to an inch last night.

I truly hope that this person that is so concerned about him, can see that he is gaining weight. He was skinny when he got here, and is looking better all the time. I wormed him on Saturday, and will have to worm him again next weekend, as he has a lot of worms. He also had ringworm on him, but his hair is growing back in now. It has been treated daily also.

Yes you can still see his ribs, that is usually one of the last areas on a skinny horse to fill in. But folks it has only been 39 days, give me a freakin break. I will continue to post photos of my boy to prove that he is continuing to gain and that he will flourish here.

Wonderful Horsey Day

Yesterday was just a wonderful day, Cougar (Brady wants to call her) is finally learning that we will not hurt her, she accepted the pole on her back, giving to pressure, and even let me touch her face. She wants so badly to trust Brady and I, but isn't quite there yet. Learning to lead.
Allowing me to touch her face, notice that her ears are up, and she is actually eating hay still. This is a huge step forward for her.
Cougar has a very nice head, whoever adopts her is going to be happy.
Stunner had a huge day yesterday, first him and Shawn got to know each other. We are trying to get him used to a lot of different people handling him.

Making friends with Shawn. Stunner was able to walk around the yard yesterday for the first time.
Following nicely along over garden hoses, around bikes, lawnmowers, and tarps.
Brady and Stunner playing in the water, Stunner loves to drink from the hose.
Following Brady
Stunner likes to be rubbed on.

Blue has to come see what we are doing and check out Stunner. As I was walking in the house, I turned are and caught this picture. Brady was talking to Jiggs, and she was falling asleep on him. This is one remarkable filly.
Jiggs trying to con someone into petting her. Silly girl.

As we were getting ready to come in for the evening, I found Ransom's spot, he loves to be rubbed on his withers, look at that lip. The more time I spend with this horse, the more I fall in love with him. He is truly one of those once in a lifetime horses.

Country Roads

Now I know this is off topic, but I always get a kick out of taking some one down this road, some people hate it, some love, it makes some car sick, right Brady? Anyway, I just thought I would show my internet friends, the lovely Casar countryside.

This was the storm rolling in last night. I was standing on my porch.

Making progress

Well Image has finally decided that we are not going to hurt her. Yesterday she did so good. She is now leading a little, still working on backing, she doesn't like that.

She allowed me to rub her head for the first time yesterday. This filly been a challenge, but I think we are finally winning her over. She has stopped panicking when we approach her, now she will allow us to walk up to her.

We are now working on picking up Stunner's front feet. I am pushing him on this, as his feet are so long.

Stunner isn't sure about Twizzlers, but he came back for more, lol.

His first bath, he loved it, and likes to play in the water. I think I ended up wetter than him.

Does that not look like a draft horse head or what?

Ransom and Leah making friends, actually she is trying to talk him into eating Twizzlers, she seems to think all of them should love Twizzlers as much as she does.
