Perfect example

Today was a perfect example of why you breed/buy horses for their minds over anything else. I just got lucky and have both the brains and the beauty! They may not be the most talented horses that ever lived but they would run circles around those talented horses in the brain category! This morning my friend and I loaded up our 4 horses (my two and her two) and headed to the beach for our first outing of our big time baby month. I am known for being game for just about anything even when it might not end well and if there was anytime for something to go wrong it should have been this trip. Here we are taking our 4 horses to the beach with just the 2 of us. This was her babies first long haul, Mylos first time being ponied, and both of their first time at the beach. Sounds like a potential disaster, right?



Here is how the day actually went:
-horses loaded right up
-hauled quietly
-unloaded and stood tied to trailer like pros
-walked on narrow path to beach with no issues
-never spooked at anything
-walked right into the ocean
-walked right into over knee deep pool of water
-didnt bat an eye at the dogs/people/kites
-loaded right up and hauled quietly home





How much better could the day have been?! The babies were amazing and never once spooked, tried to get away, or did any naughtiness. Instead they walked quietly on loose leads the entire time! We were beyond happy with them. Next baby outing is potentially on Saturday at a local small schooling show :)

The whole gang :)
