For some reason this year we have been busier than many of the past years...When it comes to our foals we always get their halters on within the first 2 weeks, but this year has been a bit different for us! Angel our filly from this year didn't get her's on till she was about a month old!! And Stone...Well lets just put it this way he was born April 28th and we just got his first haltering done August the 9th!! So Stone was 3 months and a few days old when we finally got to do this..So that Sunday Hubby decided that would be the day!!
We haltered his dam as she would likely try and keep him from us. So then we just stood around and scratched him for awhile, and then finally Hubby lured him into the corner and after a few attempts at putting the lead rope over his head (using that to catch him so we can get the halter on) Hubby finally got it over and Stone fought him for a few minutes and then layed down...So Hubby slipped the halter on and I sat with Stone and scratched him some more and then finally he got up. That was pretty uneventful, he did fight for a minute and then he just gave up.. So his first haltering is done and now we only need to do it a few thousand more times LOL!!
Now I DD taking the pictures for me since I had to help, but unfortunately she didn't quite have the hang of it so we got a few blurry ones :( Now I throw a DISCLAIMER in here now...Beware of my attire LOL, I had been traveling all day so I was dressed in some comfy clothes and when I got home it was time to work so I just threw on my boots and away we went!!!
Stone cuddled up to his Momma trying to hide :)
Yes that's me...I know I look real spiffy here!!
Hubby getting Stone blocked in..
Slowly putting the rope around his neck..
OH look who popped in!! It's Angel!! She wanted to see what was going on?!?!
Right after Hubby got the rope on...I know it's really blurry but I had to show you this visual!!
