LMLM is a 2012 stallion sired by Just Me Only and out of Shes My Kind Of Magic. Like all of the colts from Shes My Kinda Magic, he is curious, friendly, smart and precocious!
LMLM was born May 17th, 2012. He spent the first few months of his life frolicking in a field with his mom and a filly named Fiona. When it was his time to wean, his mother was moved and he then shared the field with another mare. He continued to reside outside throughout the winter and thrived in that environment.
Spring is now here and his journey must start. The picture attached to this post is showcasing him in his patchy winter coat on the second day of training on the longe line. I hope to show everyone who visits this blog his transformation. I will post pictures and videos to chronicle his progress.
His lessons today included learning to move away from my body and to stay out of my space while on the line, to move forward in both directions of the circle and finally to stand tied to the wall in his stall. You may think that we didn't accomplish much but really we did. The attention span of a horse at this age is very short so we must teach what he will retain in a short period of time for the best possible outcome. As he moves forward in his training and progresses to new levels, the time spent learning will also increase. The most important thing we want to achieve is a positive attitude as this early training will help set the stage for a successful future riding career.
