Just That Easy


Now that Sophie has had her wolf teeth pulled, I can get her used to wearing a bridle. I figured now was as good a time as any:



Me, joking: "Here Sophie! Come put your bridle on!"


Me : "Ha! This will make a funny blog picture."

"OK?!"

"You're freaking me out a little here, Sophie."

I guess the moral of the story: never underestimate a curious, mouthy baby? She literally walked right up to me, smelled the bridle, and started chewing at the bit as I held the bridle in my hand (a happy mouth so I guess it smelled interesting.)

So, I took her to her paddock, slipped the bridle on like an adult pony, and gave her a bunch of treats. Apart from some mouthing and figuring out how to chew food with it, she wasn't fussed at all. 

When I took it off, she was just as curious about it as before and we had to have a investigation of the whole thing. Funny pony!

And, with that, another small milestone in the books and a step closer to riding her one day.
Ta da!
