Here we go again!!!

Kevin and I will be competing in the Extreme Mustang Makeover held in Albany, Or. in June.
We picked our 3 (yes 3 as Kevin is doing two for a chance to win a saddle.) On the 30th of March. He got a 5 year old mare and a 3 hear old gelding. I got a 3 year old gelding. His mare is from Warm Springs HMA which is where our first mustang(Katie) is from. His gelding is from Jackie's butte. He is 14.2hds tall as a 3 year old so he will be big. My gelding is from the Barron valley complex(which includes horses from Sheepshead HMA and Hogs creek HMA) He is about 14hds tall as is Kevin's mare.
So we have 90 days to gentle and train these horses. The beginning is going well. I am petting my gelding all over and Kevin is petting his gelding on the forhead. The mare is a liitle tougher!
I will post updates as often as I can.
