Betty Sue’s little romps

At almost ten months of age, RPSI filly, Betty Sue is getting taller and starting to fill out.  We have continued almost daily with her education.  We get her out of her stall to groom her, pick up and clean her feet and do a little ground work.

Betty works well in her halter, leading, backing on command and standing.  Lauren even walked her over to load in our trailer the other night when it was hooked up for the horse show.  Betty Sue quietly followed her in and back out.  No fuss, no issues, it was pretty nice.

But Betty Sue’s and frankly, I think everyone at the barns favorite thing to do is when Betty Sue gets rewarded after going through her paces in the arena, by a few minutes off her lead rope.  As Betty has gotten bigger, faster and stronger her desire to play with us has intensified.  I understand that it is important for a young horse to respect personal space and she does-she always stops, but that doesn’t mean that she has not gotten a little intimidating as she romps down the line toward you in her little gallop.  Hiding behind the jump standards is common for large man or young child as Betty Sue enjoys these little play times.

I am enjoying this little filly to the fullest.  I can’t wait to see the color of her coat after she sheds out the winter coat she brought from Colorado.  We tried to entice her to follow us over some jumps-and she did go over an X behind Lauren, but when the other girls tried it, she said “I really want to but I think I will just walk around!”

I love her buckskin coloring.

Tomorrow is the first of February (and my daughter Ally’s 27th birthday) and the day we weigh and measure this baby.  I will let you know the latest numbers.
