Karin arrived at the farm just a few minutes before I made it home but yesterday's training pictures were downloaded first before heading out to watch today's training. Below are a few pictures from yesterday.
Galena was 3rd to be worked yesterday. She is improving each time she is worked.
She sure is a hairy mare.
Zalena was last to be worked. Karin brought her up to the mounting block and Zalena thought she was asking her to stand on it.
A few years ago Karin would end each training session with the mare stepping up on the pedestal. I think Zalena remembered that and was sure Karin would not make her work if she would climb up quickly. Zalena is another mare that has improved this year. She is muscling up well and her top line is looking well developed. She is also learning she doesn't need run as soon as she is mounted.
When Karin finished with her she decided she wanted to scratch her back leg. Indy IS fat, check out the rolls of fat on her back as she scrunches up. Indy isn't due until August 1st. She sure has no trouble keeping her weight up. Another of our easy keepers.
The last mare worked today was Galena. Karin warmed her up a bit while waiting for Hannah and Faith to come over.
Below Mackenson and Berlica are climbing the round bales.
Faith was thrown up on Galena at the end of this training session just to see how Galena would react to doubles and someone standing at that. She wasn't very happy but stood still.
