Estee's Christmas Present

Mom and Bill got me, well, Estes, a new headstall for Christmas.  It's beautiful; the perfect balance between tough girl and pretty.  It's got bling in the form of BBs, not flashy stones.  And the leather is not dainty; it's good, sturdy leather.

I've been using Ashinator's headstall when I can get away with it (she keeps catching me at it, darn it!) and it's obvious that Estes prefers that one over her own.  Since she's so light and doesn't try to rub off her bridle, I don't feel the need to use a traditional bridle with her.



She's currently in a pasture that is fairly easy to reach, so when I go up to the lodge on Wednesday, I have every intention of trying out her Christmas present, even if it's only a quick trip around the fence line and through the trees.

Pictures in a few days...
