Quarter Horse Filly. Liver Chestnut, Star, Strip, Wide Snip.
White on Left hind. (on left in picture)
Her new name is Bella Noelle!
3/12/02 - Thought you would like an update on the 2 babies.
We finally named the paint. He is Ozwald,and when he grows up
he will be the mighty and powerful OZ. It took us over one month
to finally gain his trust. My husband,not the horse person in
the family, was the one to get the halter on. Once that was done,he
was easy. He loves to be groomed. Caitlin and I are working on
leading now. The big wind storm caused so much havoc that the
babies broke through the fence to join the older horses and now
have been with them ever since. Ozwald,loves Alex my 18 year old
gelding. He is keeping him young. I find them playing together
Bella is coming
along very easily, she has a great mind and so willing to learn.
Caitlin is now able to take her for short walks in the neighborhood.
We have been introducing both her and Ozzie to puddles,both have
to play with it before they will walk through. Ozzie likes to
roll in the puddles after we finish. Bella stands when tied. There
have been no fights with the rope or post. Sooner or later something
has to give, she is just to easy. The Vet is coming this week
to repair a small umbilical hernia. Other wise she is very healthy
as is Ozwald.
9/19/02 - The babies are not babies anymore. Bella and Oz
are growing up and they are doing just great. They both love people.
Bella never had a problem with this she was always in your face
kind of gal, but Oz, I never thought that he would want to be
hugged, he loves to be hugged and will follow us all over the
feild. I know he is anxiously awaiting to be gelded, but he currently
is a one testicle horse. We are going to wait until the end of
fall and see what happens.
Both are training
in the roundpen. Oz is a quick learner and wants to please. He
listens and responds to his commands. Bella does fine as long
as Caitlin is in command. They both love to go for walks, they
pony with the big guys, and they took their first trailer ride
to the trainers without incident. Oz was standing at the fence
today wondering why he wasn't going for a ride.
I can't say
enough on how great they are... I again wnat to thank you for
taking the time to go to rescue them from the unknown and providing
my family the opportunty to train and love them.
