Happy To Be Back!

That was a loooooong drive!!!!! Holy cow!!! BUT! Acacia made it back safe and sound and she is a GREAT Hauler... She's scared and nervous, but quiet.... No thrashing, rearing, striking, NOTHING!!! The drive she stayed nice and still and munched on her hay...
We got back on Saturday and of course it's pouring down rain, but have no fear, rain or shine we're out there working with her.... So far I've been able to touch her nose while she was in the trailer and yesterday being day one I was able to get her to walk towards me and eat hay out of my hands, but still no touching allowed... LOL!!!

Acacia was captured when she was a yearling and is a beautiful black bay color with a cute little snip on her nose! I really want to hug her, she is so stinking cute LOL!!! I can see past the scrubby exterior and rain soaked fur and I know she's a beauty!!!




Here she is in the Chute getting her tag cut off and getting ready to go in the trailer....








Our Rain Soaked Beauty!!!

She actually is quite pretty. Not what I think of when I think of the Mustangs here locally. Nice shoulder, looks like a pretty good hip from what I can see.

Congrats to you. I think you do really have a diamond in the rough.

Awe cool! She has the same snip as my Sprig of Acacia!
Good luck, and keep safe working with her.

Good luck! She looks great, got that freaked out but still myself look to her.
Can't wait to hear what happens.

How exciting! More photos - I'd love to see her face!

Her mug is super cute in the picture of her in the chute, and she looks like a really nice pony! I was expecting something not as correct! The ones I've seen on blm land are pretty rough and range-y, if you know what I mean.

Looking forward to hearing how things go.
