Ty was fatally struck by lightening during a terrible storm with a near tornado accompanying it. Zeb is Ty's son, born to Willa, and he is a very tame sweet natured fellow, as is his mother. The horses are calm and friendly and willing. It won't take much to train Willa this summer. She will begin driving school and liberty training to bareback ride. I do not know how to train a horse, but I know how to train a dog. I understand that there is a huge difference between the two, but already I have accomplished feats with the horses that people said I wouldn't be able to do. Horses take a lot more patience to train than a smart dog, but it is doable. It is easier for me to train my big dog to pull a cart than to train Willa, for example.
Anyhow, young Zeb is going to be a year old in May and his mother will be three then. She was bred too early, but not intentionally and she has recovered to full health. Many visitors to the farm love the horses, so for now they stay. Zeb is gelded and there is no reason to breed his mother, because there are too many horses in Alberta already. Zeb and Willa are purebred registered Canadian horses. To read more about the Canadians, look here.
