I visited Dalton!


Monday, March 28th, 2022 | Filed under Dalton




My visit was shorter than I had hoped because my orthodontist appointment went an hour longer than I had originally thought.  (The orthodontist is close to Gillian, so I thought I’d visit Dalton and Annie on that same day.)

Since I only had 2 hours, I thought I’d rather see Gillian ride Annie than Gillian ride Dalton.  So, I messed around with Dalton and Gillian and I chatted a lot… and then I messed with Annie and Gillian and I talked a lot, and then she rode Annie.

It wasn’t the most productive riding day, but it was a lot of fun!

My handsome boy… it is tough to take photos of him unless someone else is there to back him off.

Gillian came to help me take some photos. Of course, Dalton tried to fleece her pockets first.

Here he is, trying to unlatch his pen. (eye roll)

Dalton is very fond of Gillian.

Giving a raspberry…

I couldn’t get a decent photo so we let him out of his pen to play with the babies. They can all run on 40+ acres.

This is one of the babies. She was full of herself! The babies are all coming 2.

Here she is again, after the bite didn’t work.

One of the other babies was destroying a feed bucket.

There goes Dalton, up the shady path while one of the babies goes into his paddock to check things out. They all run around the large acreage daily. Such a great life.

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.
