So Yesterday I finally made the trip up to pick up the ponies. Its been a long time coming. I first talked to her in October about them, not really seriously looking but she seemed to have exactly what I was looking for. Hmm. So I kept asking questions thinking its not what I would want and every time it was. Ugh. So in January there was a nice day and I went up there and seen them. Had no intentions of really buying. I was looking for a 2 or 3 year old but she has the 1 and 4 haha. But still wasn't serious even though I quite liked them. Thought they would be out of my price range. But they were not. And so we made a deal as long as I could talk Neil into it ;) Haha like he would ever say no.
So they are full sisters., BBR Miss Caliente and BBR Miss Uniquity. I saw the sire and dam in Jan when I went, nice looking horses. And super temperment. Kinda cool seeing siblings and parents. So went to pick them up, the older one is halter broke, the younger one isn't. Neither had been in a trailer before so they had them in the barn and we backed up the trailer to the doors and were gonna just chase them on. Her husband wanted to try and lead Cali on and so he did, she just jumped on no problem, and then Trio jumped on after her, that kinda made Cali jump and rush forward but she was OK. So we just left them loose in there together and they seemed fine.
We did all the paperwork and on the road again. I stopped at Trochu for fuel and that was a little scay for them, a deisel truck on one side and a rattly trailer on the other but a bit of walking around and they were calm again. Got home and it started to try to snow but wasn't cold. Wasn't even frozen yet. I backed up to the pen, Went in the trailer and took off Cali's halter and opened the big door. They were a little hesitant to jump off but we just gave them time and about a minute later off they come, not too fast pretty careful. Razz and Jessie were on the other side of the fence coaxing them haha.
Didn't do much last night since it was supper time, just fed them and left them to figure stuff out. Seems like they are getting along well and as soon as the snow disapears it halter time for Trio. Then as soon as there is a little grass she can go out with the pasture horses for the summer. And Cali needs a new name. I had a Kali before and too confusing. And my friend's daughter is named Cali too so definitely needs to change. Still thinking on that one though. Super excited about them though :)
