This weekend I traded Miley the lesson pony for Diva, a 2 year old filly. She is hopefully going to be my 2015 futurity horse. Right now 2015 looks like it is going to be a crazy year as far as futurity horses go. I already have 3 that I will be riding if everything goes as planned. Well yesterday, I got Diva to the farm. I left her at my sister in laws Sunday night and we loaded up Monday morning and came home. When I got her home, I put her in a smaller pasture by herself to try to let everyone see her and smell her before just throwing her in with everyone. I did some work, worked a few other horses and then went back to check on her. The lady I got her from said she was friendly, but you never know with young horses so I left her halter on her just to make it easier to catch her. She let me walk right up to her. I petted and loved on her for a minute and then left and went to work more horses. After I finished working horses, I separated everyone into their feeding group. I put Diva in with Willie. Willie is my good barrel horse that has been there, done that, and phased by nothing. He didn’t even bother to walk over an smell her. Then I feed up. Well Diva really is a Diva. She has a lot of growing up to do if she is going to fit in at my place. She was scared of MC in the feeder and refused to go eat. What a DIVA! Then it rained all last week and heaven forbid she have to walk through the mud. Can you say DIVA?
Isn’t MC at the feeder absolutely terrifying. LOL!
Diva came with all her AQHA paperwork so now my goal is to get all that taken care of and sent in this week. I have to sit down and come up with name choices. I am terrible at naming horses. Her dam is by Shes Olive That by Artful Investment and her sire is Super Lucky Guy. I need to see if I can pull from there names but that will be one of my evening projects. I may be asking for your help this week so keep checking back. But in the meantime here are a few pictures of Diva and Artful Investment.
