Week Five.

Horse update :)

Week 5. Horse progress ~ Humphrey is getting a round bum!  yay for plump bums. The lump on his head has gone.  This morning after breakfast, he let me stroke him for the first time - I am so chuffed! Darcy and Bo are doing great too - they are letting me pick their feet up, and are being introduced to halters this weekend.  
They have access to all our acreage now, and if they are in the front yard when I walk to the mail box down the track, they follow me in hope that I'll be getting feed out the box, not mail. 

I was introduced to a trainer yesterday, who seems to train horses exactly how I want - based on 'natural horsemanship' techniques -  no pain methods, bitless bridles, and barefoot (no horse shoes) Since I can't find a trimmer who specializes in barefoot trimming locally, I guess I'm going to have to learn to trim feet myself!

Although I worry a lot, I love having the horses :)  they are the most beautiful, majestic animals ever created, in my humble opinion.
