they look so good together

These pictures were taken on Saturday before I began the weaning process so I guess they are the last of the mare and foal photos. It was great watching them run together.

Here's Yalla with all four feet off the ground. And then I got Annie also with all four feet in the air.
I managed to catch Yalla on one hoof
and then Annie too. However, I think Annie gets the prize for the best balanced. Just look at her leaning into that curve! Yalla wins for high headedness!


I can only hope she inherits her mother's dynamic trot!

In case you were wondering, Scout and Nadia did run, but they mostly preferred to stand and watch.

Wow you can sure see from the photos how much "little" Yalla has grown!

In the not so distant future you can post "Mother & Daughter" photos instead of mare & foal :)

Great pictures!

I'll let you now when we get our CO or WY plans figured out. We tentatively are planning Memorial Day & the week following. My friend who is going with us is a nurse and had to have vacation time scheduled already. Our concern is snow that time of year, but we have some leads on on some rangers in the area.

Laughing at conditioning... when we went to Black Hills 2 yrs ago, McCain was going to take our young black colt. He was in pretty good shape & young. The kids, of course, put no time on their horses so I was trying to get them all in shape. I never did like that colt & he about lost me when I was conditioning him. So I told McCain that he either conditions or Blue makes the trip. Well, he hee-hawed around & meanwhile, I started conditioning Blue. I probably had about 12 hours on him before we left, but he did fine. He looked so good because he had lost some weight.
