Baby Horse Update

Baby Z and Winston finally shed their foal hair/winter coats. They look so handsome now! 

The bugs at my house are out of control, especially the mosquitoes. This means it is time for baby horses to learn about fly spray. Now you might remember how Z was way chiller than Winny. However, the tables have turned. 

I've gotten to the point where I can spray 75% of Winny's body without fuss. Z on the other hand thinks the bottle is going to kill him. They both don't care about the war paint at least.

We've also been working with the leadrope. Winny is again the superstar in this category but Z's fear has definitely subsided and he is mostly ok with it now too. They are both sweet loving boys and I'm so happy to have the opportunity to work with them!


  1. Glad the preliminary training is going well!

  2. I hate bugs with a passion, they are gross and nasty. Hopefully the boys will learn it is for the best to accept that spray!

  3. I mean ... My 14 yr old mare still gives the spray bottle the hairy eye ball lol
