Slick and Bella are so good. They are VERY good for each other...to be honest, we've been keeping Slick segregated from everybody else because the geldings are very rough with each other, and we definitely didn't want him getting hurt. So now that he has a playmate his own size, he's getting LOTS of good socialization.<br><br>
Last weekend, we had some kindergarten lessons...mainly clipping, tying, sacking out, and TRAILER LOADING!! Slick was NOT good with the clipping, but he's slowly getting better. Bella treated it like it was second nature to her, so she has a really nice bridle path now and slightly less fuzzy ears <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Sacking out and tying are old lessons for these two, so it was mostly review.<br><br>
But trailer loading...was new for both of them. Bella has only been in a trailer once, and that was to be delivered to our house after we bought her. It was a big, open stock trailer with a ramp, and she stumbled off the edge of the ramp while unloading and scared the crap out of herself. Slick has NEVER been near a trailer. They were both so, so, so good. I have to say, it's so nice to handle baby horses who haven't been ruined by some yahoo with a temper. A couple of sniffs, snorts, a little bit of pawing, two feet up, back out once or twice, then they both were in!! Standing quietly, munching their hay. They even took a short ride around the pasture. The unloading was fun...the drop was new for them, and they both kind of stumbled a bit on the way down, but we just loaded and unloaded a few times, and they were handling it like old pros. I'm SO PROUD of my babies!!<br><br>
Now, for some pictures:<br><br>
