I went out Sunday to introduce myself to the mares and see if they would be hard to catch. Michelle said that the two older mares are kind of stand offish and might be a little harder to catch. I really wasn’t too worried about it and figured it would just take some time for them to get to know me. So Sunday I went out with my brushes to see what would happen. Well right away Seneca starts walking right over with Bossy behind her. Then Rain stops eating her hay and decided this looks like something she should be a part of also. I started brushing Seneca right away and all three just stood there all around me smelling. The older mares were not afraid at all.When it was Bossy’s turn she just stood there and let me comb the tangles out of her mane and brush the dirt off from the day before when they rolled in the round pen after they arrived. Rain was totally feeling left out and was pushing her way between the two older mares and Seneca laid her ears back like…hey its not your turn yet!
I’m so pleased with the mares. They are so gentle and really not all that spooky at all. Bossy and Seneca both lifted their hooves just by touching their fetlocks. So I figured they would be pretty easy to trim. They are both needing it right now so I will work on that on Monday.
