Last week we went over to the Strains and watched them catch and start the halter break some colts. The colts are only 2 and 3 years old and there were 5 of them. Three palominos, one cremello, and one paint. The strains got the four palominos and cremello for their new wagon team - and Elisa got the paint for a new riding horse. These horses hadn't ever been handled much so were quite wild - it took Elisa almost 45 minutes to catch her paint. Then Tikvah roped one of the palominos - the one that was attacked by a bear when it was younger - it has scars all down it's neck, but for some reason it was the tamest one. We had to leave about that time - but Elisa is already riding the paint and Yishai is riding the cremello. The palominos are all too young to ride yet. Here are some pics!
