We lunged him again today, me and my two sisters, it was my little sisters first time lunging a horse. Then we braided his mane and tail, just for fun😉 and he rolled and undid it😆

I had a book on braiding manes and tails. When my husband died in September 2021, I decided to sell our farm and move to my sons rent house until I found another place. I couldn’t take my horses with me, so I sold them REAL cheap. Got tons of responses but picked out who I wanted my horses to go to. I figured there might be good families that wanted a horse and would care for one, but couldn’t afford $3000 to $5000 for one. My gelding, Prince, went to a family with 4 kids. Their 10 year old little girl was so excited and I gave her the book on braiding manes and tails. She gave me a big hug. Sad moment for me but happiest day of that little girl’s life.

Lunged him again today on his shiny new lead rope, 14 ft this time instead of 10 ft . Put his saddle pad on and took it off then put it back on again. Brother gave me a leg up and I sat on his back for the first time, he didn’t react in the slightest, just stood there. Then my sister gave him a man bun.

Rode tucker a little yesterday, just bareback and at a walk only (someone led him on a separate lead rope in case he got antsy) all I did was sit and scratch him. he got excited when he realized I was going to be riding him, I really think he enjoys it as much as I do. I also got this great pic of him yawning😆

Tucker is a good, solid horse. I’m pretty sure you could saddle him up and ride wherever you wanted and he’d be fine. He strikes me as one of those horses that you can ride often, then put him out to pasture for months to a year, and pick up where you left off. It is wise on your part to take it slow. You are building your own confidence and y’all are getting to know each other.
