Float Loading The QS Fur Kids

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!                                                   I wanted to share with you all, a small part of the journey our young horses Luna and Îah have had... Luna and Îah were both halter trained by Mel a couple of years ago and have had a follow up since. Mel did a little bit of loading with them this year, then took them up to QSSC at Woolooga for Colt Start. 

We went up to pick them up last Saturday and completed hand over. When we left on Sunday, it was such a joy to just go into their yard, put the halter on and load them into the float, with some guidance from Mel! Our trip home was about 4 and 1/2 hours, we stopped to fuel up and put air in the tyres and grabbed a feed. The girls stood quietly in the float for about 20 minutes while we did this! No drama at all! 

When we got home, we unloaded them, Îah was a keen to get off the float! We put them in the yards overnight, too dark to go down to the paddock (for us that is) and when we took them out to their paddocks the next day, it was just too easy! The whole journey was a complete joy, because these youngsters have had the right preparation and handling.

They have both only had around 25 hours of training on the ground and it is such a pleasure to be around them and handle them, they're light, responsive and easy!! Thanks Mel and thanks QS!!

Soo nice to hear Kerensa. Wish more people would do as you have and got your youngsters off to a good start (education). Looking forward to the next chapter now.

That is so awesome Kerensa. Well done for giving them the starts they needed. They are both lovely  horses.
