The Project:

One Mustang directly off the range, One trainer, No tools, Just body language

The Goal:

To discover how far Equestrian Art can be developed solely using body language.

It’s a Boy!!!

Born sometimes between 11 and 2 in the morning Mother’s day (or the day after)

Sunday night I checked in with Myrnah after I got off the ferry from a weekend working away. She seemed calm and easy. I went home for a few hours sleep and when I returned at two in the morning, there was a happy healthy colt tottering quietly around. Alternating between nursing and exploring the world this colt was secure knowing his mother Myrnah was attentive and completely relaxed.

I spent an hour and half with them in the dark, a quiet observer. Both foal and mare coming over to say hello from time to time. Peace and quiet and an exciting new beginning under the stars.

A few hours home for sleep and then back first thing in the morning to spend time getting to know our new addition.

ByΒ  mid day, the foal was now 12 hours old and looking stronger and brighter in every moment.

Myrnah is the most amazing mother. More peaceful and loving than any mare I have ever watched with a foal.

The first day out in the world can be exhausting!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A carpet of daisies is a perfect spot for a nap.

Life is good when you have someone shoulder to shoulder with you ready to take on the world.

  1. Congratulations to you and Myrnah – will you be teaching this little guy with the same principles? – would be amazing to see the progression from birth.

  2. What a beautifully balanced looking fellow! It will be so exciting to hear of your ventures with him, and how things continue to progress with Momma πŸ™‚

  3. Congratulations Elsa! What a gorgeous little guy! He looks sturdy built with strong joints, I like that.
    Considering Myrnah’s behaviour, would you say this is her first foal, or does it look like she has some more past experience being a mom?
    Enjoy!

  4. So very Beautiful Elsa, can’t wait to here & see more. Contratulations so all of you!

  5. wonderfull!! they look so relaxed and happy together πŸ™‚ congratulations πŸ™‚

  6. WOW!!!

  7. Congratulations! What a cutie!!!

  8. My work is so much about end of life, it is such a balm to my soul to see your new foal at the very beginning of his life, and Myrnah’s new adventure as Mom. Thank you so much for sharing this experience!

  9. What a payoff! And you were (again) right about not following around in the dark to catch the new foal. And what strength you have to go off at that last moment, trusting to Myrnah’s Momship, but what else is this parntnership but trust that each will be there when needed….NOW she needs you to keep him occupied when SHE needs a rest. GREAT SAGA! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ β€”for you, her and himβ€”
