Foal Update

August 5, 2012
Jester and Rhett are doing great :) they are currently staying at their Auntie Kim's barn in Massachusetts until the paperwork required to cross to boarder into Canada is ready. The foals are very curious of people, and have been taking grass and hay from us. Both have had halters on.

 
 
 

Exciting News

July 30, 2012
This past week, Kris, Jerry and Sydney from Chincoteagues In Canada headed down to Virginia to attend Chincoteague's annual Pony Penning Week, and as always there was a wonderful crop of foals!  We are excited to welcome 2 new wild Chincoteague foals to New Beginnings Stables ! Jester is a bay pinto colt with a star, and Rhett is a chestnut pinto colt. 


   
 

Mop Top Training

June 25, 2012
Practicing trailering with your horse can be a valuable skill, even if you do not need to go anywhere. It allows the horse to associate a positive experience with the trailer, and can make loading when you really need to a breeze. Chincoteague Bay Dreamer, or Mop Top, had not been on a trailer since 2009 when he was brought home for Chincoteague. Expecting him to be nervous, we decided that we would just introduce him to the trailer rather than load, but he had other plans. Mop Top walked right into the trailer as if he had been doing it all his life. Just goes to show how easy going Chincoteagues are, and how much they trust the people in their lives :)

It's that time of year again! Foaling time for the wild Chincoteague mares. This past week we went down to the island to see the new foals. Here are a couple pictures of the new babies :) These foals are with Surfer Dude, one of the most well known stallions on the island.

Training

April 6, 2012
Today we began our first day of longing training with Dreamer. He was very co-operative, and caught on quickly. When there was an instruction he did not understand, he asked questions. We are looking forward to continuing training with our beautiful eldest Chincoteague :)

Dreamer has been doing well with his training, and we are looking forward to continuing with it. He also seems to be growing! As for the other Chincoteagues, they are enjoying the mild winter, and going outside without their blankets.
