We picked up our two T.I.P. Horses today

We picked up our two T.I.P. Horses today. We have 78 days to get them ready for the mustang show July 25th. They will be available for adoption at this show. We will also be showing them at the Pacific Wild Horse Club show July 18th and 19th in McMinnville.
We first looked at a few mares and had one picked out. She was built really nice. We had them put her aside so we could look at the geldings next. They brought the geldings in and Kevin had one picked out right away. Tom the Manager of the corrals pointed out another nice guy to us, and we said, “we’ll take that one for sure.” We had to decide on the gelding that Kevin picked out and the mare he picked out. It was a tough decision but, we eventually went with the gelding. Kevin said if we got the mare he would end up keeping her.
They brought the boys into the shoots and trimmed their feet and wormed them for us. That was a bonus! The boys were really well behave in the shoots, but when it came time to halter them neither one of them were having any of it. Finally the halters were on and we loaded and headed for home.

Did you watch them trim the hooves? I've heard that they lay them one their side in a chute. Is that true? Do they sedate them?

Exciting. Can't wait to see pictures and see what you named them.
