She is a beautiful example of a blanket Appy and actually has very good bloodlines.
As she is black based, hopefully a foal out of her by Valiant will end up black with a blanket.
Noah, Shaeya and Natalie came to the farm with us to learn how to round pen but because Coke wasn't ready for a trainee to train her, Karin had them work with the stallions. Valiant was taken out first. Noah was the first in the round pen.
Below is Shaeya's turn to work with Valiant. She asked him to move and he did.
next she asked him to bow and lay down.
Natalie was last to work with Valiant.
Shaeya also asked him to canter both directions but this time after she asked him to lay down she told him to stay and was able to scratch and pet him while he waited for the next command.
She asked him to hold the sit and he did.
Natalie also asked him to canter both directions, lay down, stay and then sit.
Mark got home and we were discussing about scraping the 3rd and 4th paddock when Diane sent a text asking if we would give her a ride to church. Both Mark and I were shocked, with the holiday yesterday we completely forgot it was Wednesday. We had to rush to get ready for church but actually got over to mom's a minute early. David Obergfel had the message. So good to be there. Mark and I went to Wendy's for supper afterwards and both got a half taco salad. It was delicious, either that or we were really hungry.
