My Parents wanted to buy a full grown horse so she could kind of mother our colts, adopting them and helping us train them. Our colts names are Shiloh and Shy'Anne. They were born in May and we brought them home about a month ago. From the time they were born until we brought them home they were not messed with, time wasn't spent with them, so they are getting use to being around people. We are hoping once they become use to the horse we bought Saturday they will begin following her example and letting us play with them more. They are gradually making progress, they are not nearly as timid around us as they were, and they will eat out of our hands.
Saturday my Daddy asked me which horse I would like to call my own, he said they were all my horses and I could claim all of them, but if I had a pick of one horse to call just mine and when I move out or get married and move out whichever comes first, which one would I want to take with me. I choose Shy'Anne!
Shiloh is sweet! He will eat peppermints out of my hand and is making progress. He seems to be getting use to the idea of being petted faster than Shy'Anne, but Shy'Anne will come around!
It is kind of neat to think when I first saw a picture of Shiloh before we brought them home, I fell in-love with him! He is gorgeous! I just "knew" he and I would be buddy, buddy and I still believe we will. Shy'Anne I thought was pretty but I was more excited about Shiloh. I remember going on and on about Shiloh and then telling Mama it would be funny if once we brough them home it turned out I became more attached to Shy'Anne. She smiled and agreed with me. Guess what, I am more attached to Shy'Anne! I am attached to both of them, but Shy'Anne I chose be my own horse. There is something about her that I like. Maybe it is the fact she is stubborn and cute about it!
I am really happy! I love my horses!! They are a lot of fun! Tomorrow I plan on taking even more pictures!!
