Foxglove Newbies 8-5-2020
Showing off the two new ponies here at Foxglove! Buuuuut Marquis I though your stables was full!! Well, We've started trying to have our horses in 24/7 turnout so now... we have more room
Foxglove's Barleycorn ------------- ------------- Project pony alert : say hello to Burt's new project, Barley! Barley is a five year old hanoverian mare Burt is starting in dressage with hopes to sell in the future. She's a real forward mare with a nice natural gait to her. Barley was staying on Burt's dad's property since she was a two year old, so we're already quite familiar with her and she's a cool mare. She's definitely more go than woah and fit the definition of a dumb-blood. She goes a little scatter-brained if she doesn't have good confident cues. I haven't had the chance to ride her myself, but Barley is definitely going to be a great show horse for someone in the future! -------------
------------- Yeah, we let Walt get another pony. Yeah, don't ask why we let them get another demon pony, but anyways, this is Freya! She's a native spotted pony with a lot of attitude. Now Walt has Ghost and Freya and hopefully that's the extent of their horse ownership for a while because they essentially get to keep their horses at Foxglove for free. I'm hoping we can get Freya sane enough that we can use her as a lesson pony since our irish cob, Murphey, who was are original plan for a lesson pony is staying at his breeder/co-owner's place for a while since they are also trying to start up lessons. But as they say, a loud rider makes a quiet horse. Hopefully. -------------
------------- Last but certainly not least, meet Concordia! This lovely little KWPN youngster is going to be my new show jumper! This girl always has her ears perked up and has a lot of confidence over fences. Yet another really cool young horse at Foxglove. She's a flashy little thing who I cannot wait to get into the jumper ring with some equally flashy tack. (Resident matchy-matchy junky here... I have... so many LeMieux sets...) I'm trying to switch up my training a bit while I bring her up. I've been trying to do some more brain-challenging work on her and on my other horses. But she's a bit more of a blank slate contrary to my other horses who've been into my old training method. I think her and I are already getting along quite nicely! -------------
------------- Okay, that concludes our new-horse showcase! Even though... Burt and I have another horse coming in as well. Then that's it until Barley goes to her new home. Who's your favourite out of this new bunch? Cheers!
