    Thanks! It wasn't as scary as I thought. And thanks again for the judging pointers!

    Hey, I went to the judging competition today and remembered all of my reasons! I didn't place most of the classes as well as I thought I did, but my reasons went pretty well overall. It was actually pretty fun and I ended up qualifying for states! (Although, I'm not sure if I want to do judging at the state level. I'll have to wait until I'm less exhausted to decide. )

    Hey! Just out of curiosity, where did you get the horse in your avatar? It looks really similar to a horse I rode here in VA.

    It's ok you didn't know! But she is doing so much better in her training, I will have to post another blog... I have so much that has happened in the past couple of weeks that I need to blog, so that I can share and maybe help someone else. How's your yearling???

    I do I actually bought her from someone who got her from a rescue in artois, ca and before that the owner adopted her and a burro as well. She is 9 years old and she got rounded up in the calico mtns in the mojave desert at about 2 yrs old brought up to shingletown lower springs at a blm ranch where she was adopted. She is really sweet really hard headed so you definitely have your hands full with a yearling. I'm in northern California.

Mustang Session: Year 1!

by Allkian on 11-18-2013 at 11:08 AM
Well I kind of fell off the radar but wanted to update on my mustang gelding. He is coming along SO well. He is one of the quietest horses I own. I can pick up all his feet, saddle him, work him, he works off lead/rein pressure. He is still growing (a slow grower, more like a warmblood) so at 2 years of age (in april) he just wasn't quite ready to be backed so I'm giving him space. He's shooting up and out like a leaf! I compare him to the QH 2 year olds that are at my boarding facility and he is

Mustang Session: Month 9, Week 2

by Allkian on 03-11-2013 at 07:48 AM
Buster still doing well. We worked on some trailer loading yesterday. He was doing great, but then got in to a hissy and decided to throw a fit so I had to really work him. Got him to finally load up quietly, although he didn't want to stay in very long. I took what I could get in the dying light of the day and his willingness to cooperate. I also put him out in turnout with Apollo. They played for a good few hours. It was adorable. Grooming each other, sniffing each other, grazing beside one another.

Mustang Session: Month 9

by Allkian on 03-05-2013 at 05:37 PM
Well, all is still going well with Buster. He will be two years old in April and he is definitely coming along nicely. I've been saddling him and he's no worse for the wear. No buck. No spook. The only BIG issue I've had with him is handling the back feet. I just didn't have the confidence to stick with him. He will let me touch the back legs and he will pick them up, but when I tried to hold them, even for a second, he would get unbalanced and lose it. So, I finally admitted that I could only do

Mustang training: Month 8

by Allkian on 02-04-2013 at 10:35 AM
Its been awhile! Thought I'd post. Buster is doing really well. I can now rub him anywhere and he is happy as a clam. He will give me all of his feet. He lunges and sends through gates better than any of my other horses. He has been sacked out and carries a pad. I haven't gotten to the saddle yet, but that is more due to MY time constraints than to him not being ok with it. He doesn't bat an eye. I can tighten a rope on his belly though. He also flexes to the halter both directions. Such a great

Mustang Session: Month 6

by Allkian on 12-18-2012 at 11:21 AM
Been awhile since I've updated. Its been a hectic few months! Buster is still doing well. He is 14.3 hands now. He's growing so quickly. I can now trim his front feet while having him stand on the hoof jack. I can pick up his back hooves, although he is still working on the balancing act while I hold them. He comes trotting up when I go in to the paddock. He whinnies for us now when we feed. He LOVES his paddock shelter and uses it when it rains. So adorable. He is filling out and starting to look
