Halter Breaking continues

The show moves on. Today is day 3 and the last day that we will halter and work with the foals. Tomorrow, we'll vaccinate and brand before they are turned out to pasture for the rest of the summer. It's simply amazing that this age ol' process just takes THREE DAYS. As you can see by the photos that Sam Cunningham caught this morning on her iphone, even the little cowboys get to be a part!

"GOOSE" ~ a cowboys right hand!

"FIRST HALTER" ~ my baby....Maraposa x Twister!


It's THAT week.....this week, I mean is THAT week. THAT week where everyone drops everything to spend the days with the foals/mares. Halter breaking, vaccinations, branding, and palpating.....all this week. Stop in for a glass of ice tea and see this amazing process in action!
