But you guys.
Have you met my baby mare?
She's cuter than shit. Can't even with how cute she is.
And then like.

Ugh she's the goddamn coolest horse to ride. She shows up to work every single day. Her answer to every question is HOKAY MOM ILL TRY. She's honest and sassy and fun. If she knows the answer, she does it the best she possibly can. If she thinks she knows, she gives this adorable little ear pin/head twist like U WANT THIS and gives it a shot.
As long as I'm fair to her, she gives 110% every. single. day.
|first ride in an english saddle since a wreck? HOKAY I B PERFIKT|
All of that is awesome. She may not know a lot, but she makes every ride worthwhile.
See and then I get off her.
|sorry/not sorry that my barn crew is this cute|
And you know what?
She is just as much fun on the ground.
I love her boldness and curiosity. No timid spooking here--she marches right up to unusual occurrences and sticks her smooshy nose right in the middle of things to see what's going on. She's never met a stranger. She's not afraid of anything. She's super smart and she thinks about things without ever getting panicked.
|time to go #Zoesploring|
It's not that she's some paragon of perfection who's schooling third and I'm over here shopping for a double bridle. She's a baby. The steering is getting pretty good and now we work on complicated things like doing up/down transitions without hollowing and collapsing. She's not on the bit. She's not inside-rein-to-outside-leg.
|oh and lunging her in a flat halter is fine|
She is fun every single day.
What else could I ask for?
