I realized that most of my photos of Jr. Ranch Boy have been of him sleeping, so here is a cute one I took of him and Ranch Boy the other day. No, Jr. isn't walking yet, he isn't even crawling, but he has super strong legs and "trunk" strength so when you hold him up he can stand on his legs! He just turned 6 months old.


I went and watch Luna's training session yesterday. She is loping now! Not overly eager about it yet, thought. She can hardly hold the lope one lap around the round pen and needs encouragement to get going, but she is progressing and isn't balky about trying. She is much more relaxed in her gaits, she is finally starting to figure out how to manage carrying that saddle and rider at a balance when moving. My trainer might bit her today. She said that she usually still uses the rope halter reins if she needs to do much reining at first, so she isn't pulling on their mouth. I love that! I'm all about creating a soft horse.

This is the first Mustang my trainer has trained and I think she really enjoys working with her, she is constantly impressed and happy with how smart she is! Since I have never really ridden Luna, I am excited to eventually become part of the sessions and learn how to ride her, too!

Hope you are all having a great week!

Adorable picture! Love that smile!! Great to hear about Luna and sounds like she's a great (and going to be even a greater) horse. :)

That is a compleatly adorbale picture! I am glad you are getting another trainer into mustangs. I know I am always trying to corrupt people, they are such great horses! Hardy, easy keepers, great feet, smart, sure footed, healthy....I don't know why more people don't have them.

Ranch Boy is adorable! Nice to hear that Luna is doing well in training. Think she might have a word with your sister's mustang, tell her it isn't so bad? :o)

That kid looks like a little cowboy to me. Even if he can't crawl, I bet he would look pretty good in some cowboy boots! Looking forward to reading more about Luna's progress.
