Earlier this fall, we added a new member to the farm. Odie is a two year old quarter horse who will hopefully turn into a decent ranch sorting horse next summer and eventually become a team penning pony. I don't really know a lot about either sport, so the two of us are going to learn as we go. He is not afraid of the dogs, goats or chickens, so I am hoping that he feels the same about cows.
So far, Odie has been very good. He didn't know much of anything when I picked him up, but can now walk and trot very well under saddle. He has even cantered a few times. He wears hula hoops, walks over carpets and logs. He has been on a mini trail ride all by himself and this weekend I even rode him bareback in the snow. Odie is such a star!
