Weaning babies is still ongoing. They still try to nurse every time they get with their mamas and the mamas for the most part would let them, so I'm being very careful. I've got Charlie with Chico, Shimmer and Catlow. Denny is in a separate pasture with Cody and Stormy. Charlie tries to sneak in and nurse on Catlow, but she won't let her. The mares are finally drying up. Cody and Charlie still whinny for eachother though. They are so dependent! So close!
I've been working with Shimmer. Today with did some ground driving for the first time and she was amazing. It started out a little rough, but she really figured it out. And I also sat on her for the first time! I can't wait to work with her again. She is a fast learner and is really going to be a great kids horse someday. Nothing really bothers her and she is just a good girl!
