Saddle Time

Doesn't Otoelene look good with a saddle?  I've had it on her a couple of times and she has done perfect. 
 Usually I lunge her first, then saddle, then lunge some more.
 Today I decided to just skip the first step and saddled her right after I finished brushing while she was still tied.
Once again, no problems.  She is so accepting of everything.  I lost her attention a couple of times when the wind was really howling but got it right back with her continuing to stay calm.  I even put my foot in the stirrups on both sides and put some weight in them.  I've been riding her bareback some with just a halter at the walk. So far so good.

I'm sure training a horse can be tedious work. Glad she's doing well! As for chickens...I'd never let them out over summer. I've seen too much of their destructive behaviors! :) But if you have a fenced in area for most of the year, they're really quite fun to have around...and the eggs are delcious!
