Introductions!




The pics above are of my gorgeous stallion Blue and the equally gorgeous Alicia who is my chief helper and 2nd in command here at horsefarm.

Blue came here 6 months ago and spent the first 3 months challenging me to be boss of the horsefarm, he would charge at me in the field and bite anyone who went near him. Lots and lots of time spent talking to him and grooming/massaging him (he is now a massage addict) and he suddenly changed and became very friendly.
Alicia came here 6 months ago and spent the first 3 months challenging me to be boss of the horsefarm. Lots and lots of time spent talking to her and making her coffee/toast (she is now a coffee addict) and she suddenly changed and became friendly.

Today was a big day for Blue - I bought him as a breeding stallion, he was supposedly broken for ride and drive but we had never put a saddle on him before. Alicia decided it was time and tacked him up just to see his reaction to it (brave woman) . He was a good lad so I decided to hop aboard for a few seconds. He was as steady as a rock, I was the nervous one!

Thanks to Alicia, a massive step forward with Blue.
Seems a long way up!

Me looking very nervous!

Ohmigosh. I'm in love with blue! He's so lovely, I have a challenging little stallion, but he could probably fit under blue's belly :)
