Rocky Tries Out a Saddle
Do you remember this photo of Virginia Range orphan Rocky, the Rockstar "dancing" in a human house, all decked out in his diaper?
He's growing up and trying out different gear now and PALOMINO ARMSTRONG,
rescuer of many wild foals, sent along a letter and photos of his progress.
"Because of snow and ice, my plans to
take the Rock Star out in the round pen to be "saddled up" were foiled.
Thanks to our awesome nursery though, I was able to safely bring him in
and we practiced saddling up.
"Man" enough to wear pink (and a saddle)
all, I know he is a boy, and the blanket is pink. But he is a very
manly mustang and can wear it well. Also, the saddle does not fit him
properly (of that I am well aware), but for saddle training it is
perfect. It is light and, as he will only be about one year old
on March 12, 2013, that is very important. It also has the appropriate
things to hang on his sides and the straps to go under his belly and
between his legs.
"As is very
evident, the Rock Star has absolutely no concern about wearing his gear
and moving around in it. He trusts us completely and loved the
attention. By the time he is ready to ride, the gear should be about as
comfy and non-existent as his mane to him."
