Hi! It's been a long time since I've contacted you. I hope all is well
with you. Here are some photos of Max (Baron's son) playing with me at
liberty. He is a very cool horse!!! I've done all his training myself
with the help of some Parelli clinics. He is incredibly smart,
confident, curious, and so willing. He loves to jump, we are getting
into some dressage, and I can trail ride him anywhere in a halter. He
has done incredibly well considering I usually only work with him
twice a week. Thank you again for such a wonderful horse!!!!!!
Please tell Robin I said hi!

Subject: Hello from Texas!!!
Hello Wagner Family!!! I can't believe it has been two years since
I got Max aka Red! He is doing wonderfully!! I am training him
myself and going to Parelli Natural Horsemanship clinics. I ride
him in a
bitless bridle and often bareback. Max's gaits are beautiful. We have
even gotten an incredible extended trot from him at the last clinic
(kind of by accident on my part) and the Parelli instructor
kept saying "oh my
gosh that is beautiful". His canter is so comfortable! He is so
smart and so receptive to training. If I had more time to play (the
Parelli word) with him, he could be so much farther along. But I
am having a blast and and am loving every minute even if I'm moving
slowly. I'll be moving Max from the place he's at to a place
within walking (riding) distance from the trainer. She's got
a covered arena which will really help when it is 110
outside. Having an arena to use regularly will increase my riding
time. Where I'm at now is really rough.
Robin-how are you? I keep meaning to drop you a note, but I have a hard
enough time checking my email. I watch all your videos. You look
so beautiful!!! I haven't been back to Ohio since my visit
when I met you. Next time I'm there, I'm going to come for a
visit. I really enjoyed talking and visiting with you.
I am embarrassed to say that I have no photos to send. One of these days,
I'll get organized and take some.
Max is beautiful and doing great! Everyone loves him. He's just full
of personality, curiosity, intelligence, and athleticism. Thanks again
for such a wonderful horse!!
Red is doing
great! He gets along with all the horses and all the people. I
lead him around all over the ranch so he can get used to all the
sights and sounds. I let him loose in a huge pasture today to run
around and he never went out of sight. He really likes to know where
I am. I've been working him loose in the round pen and doing sort
of the Monty Roberts join up thing. I think we were "joined up"
from the beginning though. He'll follow me anywhere! I ordered a
surcingle to begin long lining him since I don't have a saddle yet. I
want to do lots of ground work before getting on him. I'm just
amazed at how cooperative he is!
I'm going to email you some pictures of him. These were taken about
an hour after he arrived. He was so calm! He followed my
son, Coleman, readily and wanted to be close to everyone.(My husband,
the owner of the place, and my mother in law were there also.)
Everyone that sees him is amazed at his personality, gentleness,
and gorgeous good looks!
Please keep in touch! I enjoy hearing from you!
Thanks again for the wonderful horse! Terri
