She was tied so her legs could be handled and she stood well for that also.
She was taken into the outdoor arena, given a leading lesson and another tying lesson. I was just so very pleased with her behavior.
She is a very fancy mover and her owner will be well pleased.
He was put in with Zalena's colt then grained. Both boys were so happy for the companionship they were eating out of the same feeder.
Karin arrived after work and helped me move the three older weanlings out of the far paddock into the middle paddock leaving the far paddock for Giselle and Amelia. Once they were all eating we pulled out Galena and Valiant for training. Karin had Faith and Rebekah come to help with that today. They started with round penning the 2 horses in the indoor then Rebekah got on Valiant while Faith rode Galena for the warm-up.
Karin had them do an exercise where one stayed in the middle while the other cantered around both directions.
Then came the real reason for today. Galena hates to be ridden double but with vaulting we need to have 2 and 3 vaulters on at the same time. Karin had Faith behind her as she asked Galena to move and did that ever make Galena mad. She tried her best to throw them off.
Good thing she isn't very athletic. After realizing Karin wasn't going to stop or get off she finally settled down and gave Karin a nice trot.
They finished up with letting her stand in the middle resting while Faith and Rebekah did some vaulting moves at a stand.
Mike took Ripper and Indy out yesterday and discovered the stock trailer has some major problems. It cannot be used without some extensive repairs. We will plan on purchasing another stock trailer next spring but our specifications are non negotiable and 14 years ago we actually had to have ours special built. We must have at least 7 feet tall, 6 feet wide, 18 feet long, a middle divider, an escape door at least 3 feet wide in the front section and it must be a bumper pull. So far we haven't found a used one with those dimensions and may have to have another built. I have the 2 horse hooked up for any emergencies right now. I ordered 20 more small halters on Saturday, hopefully they will be here soon.
