Working hard on Escalante to get him ready for the Mustang Riders...
Silhouette still a little unwritten and mysterious. I will have to see her through the fall and winter to say more. She is the only mare I ever owned and there is a special relationship to be discovered, since she also gave me Galicio. This summer I switched from trying to elevate her action in the trot to realizing that she is a gifted western style motion, she can travel smooth and enduring in a shuffle like pace that gets places without noticing. She also has the most ground covering walk and the mother attitude is very valuable when it comes to estimating questionable situations. I love her.
Leaves Galicio, who is turning three in a couple of weeks. He has started ground school, second chapter. A lot of spanish in there and elegance, know him from birth on (none of the others) and hope that his mind keeps up with the growth of his beautiful frame.
