I visited Dalton and Annie!


Thursday, January 13th, 2022 | Filed under Annie




Today I went out to Arroyo Grande to visit with Dalton and Annie.    Gillian had an appointment so she couldn’t be there… and I didn’t have much time, so I just hung out with them.  I love having no agenda, a bag of cookies and a brush.

The weather was perfect.  Not warm, not too cold, no flies and not raining.

Both of them made faces at each other but a good time was had by all.  (When I’m not there, they play together all day.)

PHOTO JOURNAL

Annie loves Gillian’s Mom, Jody.

Annie and Dalton had been playing, so she was a bit sweaty in her winter coat.

Dalton is giving Annie side-eye. I made to sure go to Dalton first, but he was still jealous.

That face is directed at Annie…

There she is, with her winter coat… all 16’3 hands of her.

Annie pouting. Cookies were involved here…

Dalton keeping one ear on me and one turned to her.

More Dalton attitude. He seriously was not this upset… just each time I took a break to get my phone, he remembered about her.

Such a good girl.

Her mane is growing so long…

Pretty girl.

DALTON, KING of the babies!


Thursday, November 4th, 2021 | Filed under Annie, Dalton




As you know, Dalton is in training with Gillian Larson.  And, now Annie is with Gillian, too!  Dalton and Annie are side by side in their respective paddocks.

Annie and Dalton. The Bigun and the Littleun

Today, my friend Shelly and I went to see both Dalton and Annie.  It was a great day… especially watching the babies interact with both Dalton and Annie.

You see, Gillian has 3 long yearling Morgan fillies.  They are adorable (you know I love Morgans)!  All they do all day is act like baby horses… they run up the hills, learn about terrains, roll, bite each other and ask humans for love.

Uncle Dalton gets turned out with the fillies every day after he has his lessons.  This works out perfectly because Dalton can run with the girls on the upper 30+ acres (and he is still bigger than they are – for a while anyway).  They run up hills and canyons… frolic and play!  This kind of activity is perfect for a silly gelding like Dalton!

Inside the babies’ feeding pen is a very large round pen.  This is where Gillian trains when she needs an arena.  Today, we brought both Dalton and Annie to the arena.

Dalton is turned loose with the babies and is watching them greet Annie who is being led by Gillian towards the round pen.

Annie has a proper introduction to the babies from the round pen.

This was just after a huge squealing session…

This is Shelly… The babies were mobbing her, pulling on her boots, shirt, pants, hat… She loved it!!

Dalton cannot believe that these babies get away with such behavior!! We watched Dalton go through his paces (I forgot to take pics!) and he is going very nicely! Once he is ready, we are going to train him bitless because we think he will like that better.
