Horsing Around

What do you do on a Saturday afternoon when you’re bored as batpoop? Teach your horse to lay down on command of course!

This is Percy (Coolridge Perseverance), a smart little Australian Stock Horse 3yr old filly. I was given her by Jackaroo, who bred her. She was a weanling when I first started visiting the farm, and was the first foal I named of his. Her name doesn’t seem to suit her sometimes, as you don’t have to persevere with her much to get the desired result. It literally took 5mins to get her bowing and then laying on the ground – despite hoards of pups running about. Great little horse! Can’t wait to start Campdrafting on her this year!
