Our family's homesteading adventures in the mountains

Hotshot

Hotshot is a horse (a gray gelding), and one of the more recent members of our farm. He belongs to a friend of the family who didn’t have a lot of extra time to spend with him, so she generously gave us the opportunity to keep him at our place and have a chance to see what goes in to keeping a horse.

He is incredibly gentle and friendly, and overall quite well behaved. He does have ┬ásome room for improvement when it comes to a few areas like taking a bit, loading in a trailer, or standing still, so I’ve been learning about horse training and working with him to be more respectful of our requests.

It’s great to have him around and hear him whinnying when it’s time for his hay.
