Colt In For Training

The people who bought Chey were so impressed with her and Apache that they want to hire me to break their colt.  Pistol isn't even 1 year old yet - he will be at the end of April though.  He'll be gelded next month and then come over here around May.  I'll have him for a year or more - gonna do groundwork and pony him places until he's 2 then I'll start riding him.  Tikvah and Elisa have colts almost the exact same age - so when they are all 2 we're gonna do the Buck Brannaman style of the first ride up at the Sapphire arena together.  You round-pen them all with the saddles on - then the riders get on and someone round-pens the colts again with them on - that way the colts are doing something they already know how to do and have support from each other.  Will keep you posted!

Here is a pic of him when he was a tiny baby :)

And here is what he looks like now:
