She was big eyed and taking in all the smells as any horse that arrives here does but she was also bold in a very Scrappy way, eyeballing things and then decidedly marching right up to them. We had a mini leading lesson as hasn’t had much ground work done with her but she gave to pressure nicely with little resistance. The moment she heard Desire’s whinny her head snapped up and she marched in her direction, obviously certain that there was a momma horse and she would be okay.
settling in last night
This morning she startled out when I walked around the corner but immediately trotted toward me and came up to sniff my hand at the gate.
She certainly is a Rushcreek in the groceries and drinks stereotype, every time I look out she is eating or drinking just as often, which is something I distinctly remember saying about Scrappy after his arrival.
She wasn’t thrilled that Desire wandered away from their shared fence line to graze in the late morning and had a chat with the hot wire on that fence line, whereupon she quickly decided that hanging out in the other corner next to Blaze was a mighty fine alternative. She’s no slouch in the brain department, that is clear already. She can, however, call Desire on the run with one adorable baby whinny; that broodie instinct is there and obvious. ❤
I also heard from Sheza’s trainer that Sheza is feeling confident with the program and is doing great, including having been mounted with the saddle on successfully a couple of times now. Ahh, fillies! ❤
