Busy Busy Busy

Things have been hectic, thus the lack of active bloggery.

The filly is going home today, and Wednesday I'll be getting in two eight year old Paso Finos to ride. (Can you guess what the topic of the next Breed All About It will be?) They're already broke, just need ridden and gentled down some, which will simplify things in some ways and complicate them in others.

The puppies are growing like weeds, as I'm sure you can guess, and in lieu of further actual content here are some adorable pictures, taken with my cell phone so I apologize for the quality:

They've recently been introduced to the joys of the chewy rawhide stick. They love them.


Yum Yum.

Hey, whatcha doin?

They're doing well, starting on a little puppy kibble in addition to the soft food, and full of all the puppy exuberance that makes having pups around so much fun. They've also learned the joys of being outside without their exercise pen, and will cry every time the other dogs get to go out and they don't.

cute pups.
Good luck on the paso's, its always fun trying to figure out someone else's cues while working with a horse that's "broke" by someone else's standards.

I've never rode a Paso Fino, but I have rode a Missouri Foxtrotter. It's an experience when they get to their gate. It's like gliding across the landscape. I think you could even drink hot coffee while enjoying the ride.

There's a few Pasos that get shown at the saddle club in my area. That "broke by someone else's standards"... yeah. They're good horses, but the ones I've observed haven't seemed all that gentle. But then, neither are most racking horses I see shown here. I think it has something to do with the owner/rider's macho self-image.
