Leila Goes to Kindergarten

Leila, at 3 1/2 months, is learning what it is like to be a good little work horse. Well, at least she is learning to "look" the part, with a collar, hames and harness! We put a pony harness on her the other day, to get her accustomed to the idea of wearing something that rubs on her haunches, legs and neck. She had no problem with the bit, nor with the blinders. She walked about beautifully! We anticipate that when the time comes, she will be a willing learner (of course, she won't actually go to work until she is 2 years old or so...the next few seasons will be prep work). Leila's half sibling is being picked up from the breeder today. Already weened, we will start her to accept the harness, as well, once she is settled in.
