At first neither of us liked the ring but we got used to it and did the best we could. I look back at some of the videos now and we are so much better now, even just a few months later :-)
His lay down on command is very good now and our liberty play (I haven't had the opportunity to video it yet!) is getting better and better!
We are looking forward to the Pink Ribbon Ride as well! I hope to meet Donna and Linus there! We live 12km away from the ride location so we are going to ride there, do the ride and come home.
You may remember a post I wrote about our super long ride (24km) a month or so ago.. that was the place we rode to! This time though... we'll do an extra 8km! Wowow... sore butts on Monday for sure!
Donna mentioned Roaning. Sunny roans too. A friend of mine saw Sunny and told me he has Robicano and Sabino characteristics. I had no idea what that meant but here are the links from Wikipedia.
The other big news is that Sunny now has a pasture mate! Through a twist of fate, my previous horse Gulliver, an Arab, who was my first horse that I sold after 5 years because I had my children and Gulliver is HOT and I couldn't ride him as much and didn't have the nerve to go as fast as he wanted anymore.
I was got in touch with the lady I had sold him to, to see if I could visit since I was passing through her area. When the timing didn't workout for me to visit :-( she menitoned that he would be looking for a retirement home... hmmmm, I told her that I would be thrilled to give Sunny a pasture mate IF it was Gulliver! So, last week, we went about 1.5hrs to pick him up. He looks great, he loaded on the trailer like a complete pro and arrived in Bourget to a very happy Curly horse!
While it isn't love at first sight... they are getting acquainted and respect each other.
