As for Cherish and I, we are busy little beavers! I received Cherish' registration papers in the mail recently, her registered name is "LIL BIT CHERISHED". We went to our first show on December 5 for a Halter class.............................Cherish made the first cut out of 33 horses and placed in the top ten - no ribbon. But we aren't complaining! It was a long class and we were judged for 40 miuntes before the judge cut the class down to 10 horses. About that time Cherish was just a tad bit tired of standing still and the ants were definitely in her pants! But she was an angel the entire time - from the primping to the ride home!
Just in case you forgot - she is the one who would NOT go in the trailer! But she is happy as a clam in there now! I take her and my other gelding to the state park every weekend for a change of pace - and she is standing at the trailer pawing her feet to get in, the second she sees me back the truck in to hook up! Never would have guessed the little st would turn out that way!
Along with all the halter training that Cher has been getting, I have also been ground driving her. What an excellent student she is! I can drive her through the entire trail course now without any problems. I have also been ponying her with a saddle and she doesn't mind it a bit! At first I thought she might give me some problems and I wanted to confront those when she was a little closer to my size.....but she proved me wrong! I plan to start riding her as a three year old.......and I think she will be well on her way to being an excellent pleasure horse then!
