Bath time 4/23/11

2011-04-23T18:24:22.802-07:00

Another great day for Iceman. He had breakfast with his new pasture mates, spent some time in the turn out, then enjoyed a good bath. Here are some shots of Eric and Iceman under City Centre today taking some time to cool down. Iceman is is doing awesome when it comes to tolerating his bath time! :)

From stall to pasture 4/22/11

2011-04-23T18:19:31.738-07:00

Iceman has graduated from his stall and is now enjoying life in the O.K. Corral pasture. Now he can kick up his heels, make some new friends, and have a bit more freedom when he isn't busy working. We are all very happy for Iceman and he seems to be enjoying the change.

Iceman Update 4/9/11

2011-04-09T17:00:19.829-07:00

Here are some photos from today. We had some crazy weather..it would be sunny and warm, then cloudy and rainy, and then cold and snowy. Couldn't get much done today with the changing weather but we did manage to get these photos. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Iceman is doing great and socializing very well. We hope to post more photos / videos of time in the saddle next week. [...]



Iceman Update 3/25/11

2011-03-25T15:44:32.196-07:00

Iceman is doing great. Unfortunately, for the last two weeks, we have had some very cold, windy, and wet weather so we haven't been working as much as we should. Hopefully next week we can get some footage of us back in the saddle and show how well Iceman is doing. Luckily, it was drizzling all day today, so we didnt have much blowing sand. Iceman is looking great though, staying happy and healthy.

Iceman Update 2/18/11

2011-02-19T18:14:39.571-08:00

Iceman is doing awesome. Eric and Sharil spent alot of time with him on Friday and it couldn't have gone any better. He stands perfectly still while tacking (and untacking) and both of them took turns being led around the round pen. Iceman is taking their weight on his back just fine and learning to trust people being up there and out of sight.

In the saddle 2/12/11

2011-02-12T17:34:26.960-08:00

Iceman made some amazing progress today. The weather was perfect, actually in the 70's and barely a breeze. Eric worked with Iceman in the round pen just after breakfast and got him all tacked up and ready to go. Iceman stands perfectly still while being tacked and doesn't even have to be tied. Eric worked some more with him under saddle for a bit, and then Dave came in to assist. With Dave holding a lead line, Eric sat in the saddle on Iceman and they made their way around the pen. Iceman was calm and collected, and never gave any fuss. He is doing so well, and before too long, we hope to blog about some solo riding. We were all so proud of Iceman today. :)

Farrier Day 1/14/11

2011-01-14T16:37:29.139-08:00

Beautiful day today. We just missed a cold front, so we have been enjoying some 60 degree weather during the day. Everyone, both human and equine, have been having a blast and thawing out. Iceman was due for a trim, so our farrier was out today. He was able to get all four hooves in no time at all. It was a nice change from the last time we had them done. Iceman spent the rest of the day just having fun in the sun. Ahh, the good life.

A big thank you goes out to Joe Weitekamp, for working out those kinks.

A Great Start to 2011

2011-01-07T16:08:25.751-08:00

It has been a great start to the new year. We have had a nice few days break from the strong winds, rain, and snow. Iceman is doing fantastic. Eric spent most of the early morning working in the round pen, and they worked on tacking and mounting. Iceman is also noticeably better with trusting others, and is so much easier to be caught in the arena after being turned out. He must also be enjoying the weather because he has really been kicking up his hooves and having a blast! :)

Iceman and Mojo 12/17/10

2010-12-17T16:14:50.391-08:00

It was a cold and wet day at the ranch. Some of the peaks around the valley were getting some snow, while everywhere else got some rain. Everyone was bundled up today and while the humans slowed down a bit, it didn't stop the horses from having some fun.

As you can see, Iceman doesn't discriminate with his play mates. Big or small, he loves them all! Today, he and Mojo had so much fun running all over the turn out. It was really cute to see them get along so well, and of course to see little Mojo's legs move so fast! :)
