Dalton UPDATE!






As most of you know, Dalton is in training with Gillian Larson Wilderness Training  

Since I don’t have any flat land or trails near me, I figured having Dalton in training with a gentle person who considers her horse her partner – and someone who rides all. the. time.  would be a good thing.  That’s Gillian.  Kind, smart, devoted, persistent.

Gillian will send me pics of her and Dalton on occasion… when I’m not able to visit within a window of time.

This was her message:  Dalton and I got out for a little ride this afternoon and I had my mom grab some pictures. We worked on quite a bit of canter transitions outside of the arena. He is such a fun guy.

Here is a series after a muddy day here in CA.  (Believe me, we are grateful for muddy days here in CA!)

HERE WE GO!

This one was my fav. Look how forward and interested he is… and her hands are light as a feather! (Both looking in the same direction!)

Again with very light hands… He’s looking like he is not quite sure that he wants to be a lead horse…

Very relaxed. Checking things out.

Handsome, sweaty boy. All that hair this time of year.

Wheeeee!

NEW BUTTON. DIFFERENT FUND. LET’S DO THIS!

FUND TOTAL AS OF TODAY:  $1575  (Thank you!)

I’m no genius. Just an average girl who has a passion to save horses in need. This is my idea going forward. If we have a constant fund going daily… we will have funds to give to those on the ground who are saving these horses in real time at the killing auctions.

Horse and Man Foundation, Inc has a new Fund button. KEEP THEM OFF THE TRUCK FUND. This fund will go on all day, all the time. It will always be here. If you want to save a horse from slaughter, you know we will do that here.

All donations are 100% tax deductible!

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.
