I made the decision to send Cooper to a local trainer. Since he was a rescue horse, I don't have any background information about his experience and training he may have had. He needs some basics and exposure before I want to ride him outside an arena. So he is going to a darling and very capable young cowgirl trainer named Sami Jo. He left yesterday and I am going out this morning to see how he's settling in, fill out the paperwork, etc.
The last time I visited Sami Jo's place, her mini horse had a relatively young foal. OMG!! This little filly was so stinkin' cute with tons of attitude in her adorable little body. Everything about her said, "You are NOT taking my picture!" But of course I did, or at least I tried. I can't wait to see how she's grown and make another effort at getting some photos, whether she likes it or not.
Don't you just love her? I hope I can get some new photos and let you see how she's growing.
