Here She Is!

Yeah...that's right...she!

Beamer's Blue Moon

When we arrived at the adoption site in Longview, we were faced with a small group of yearlings, of which only 3 were geldings. As there were a couple of younger children, and one of those geldings was smaller and pretty quiet, Darling opted to let her gelding go and take one of the fillies. The one she ended up with was be-bopping around like nobodies business! One spunky little bay from Murderer's Creek.

Darling spent a couple of sessions with her yesterday, and I must say I'm impressed! Darling's skills have grown since last year. She's got more rhythm and feel this time around. Beamer was flying in great haste when she first entered the pen with her, and I thought a couple of times that maybe a leg would fly through a panel...it was that wild! But by the end of the day, the lead rope was off and Darling was able to take the filly's head in her hands and rub on both sides of her face simultaneously. She's rubbing up and down both sides of her body and Beamer is giving a bit to pressure as Darling attempts to get her to move her feet as she pulls her nose around. I'm excited to see what they can accomplish over the next several weeks!

Anyone interested in adopting? Beamer and the others will be available on October 2 at Reber Ranch in Kent, WA.

Wow, what a beautiful little girl she is! You must be so proud of Darling, she is doing good with the wild bunch for sure!
Can't wait to see what else happens with those two.

Kara said...

She is an adorable filly!

Blob said...

Look forwarding to hearing about their progress.

If she was only a little bit older, I'd be signing up already to adopt her!

Tracey said...

Shirley, I bet you do love the name!

Jane and Kara, thank you. I think she's pretty darned cute, too!

Hey, by October she'll be older, Blob! => But I know what you mean, it's hard to sit around and wait for a yearling to grow up. Wish I had an extra 10 acres where I could put a few babies out and let them grow. I'd have a pasture full of prospects if I did it that way!

oh she's gorgeous! Darling is a lucky girl!

Beautiful filly - how well your daughter is doing with her already!

Hey Tracey.....can you post this on the YAY blog too to encourage others to do the same? :~ )

Tracey said...

Susan, I'll have Darling post tonight. Trying to get her in the habit of making her own posts, don'cha know :)

She is adorable!! Looks like Darling is doing a great job!

You've got yourselves another sensitive, intelligent soul there! But, without the incredibly mobile, wrinkly, opinionated lip and muzzle of Tika, I am sure this little girl will be a much simpler prospect. I really like her. I am sure she is going to be a lovely horse for someone! Go Darling!

Gorgeous filly! That looks like a good match!

Hopefully I'm going to remember this date and come visit. That's probably as close to me as you're going to get.

Beamer looks very sweet.

Tracey said...

M~trust me, there will be reminders!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! This filly seems to be very receptive and Darling's timing, etc, is so much better than last year. She's really enjoying her.

She is a gorgeous little filly! I'm actually going to be adopting her on the 24th and am very excited about it! Sounds and looks like Darling did a great job with her!
