Thanks guys (gals)...

This girl isn't going anywhere. I would take a bullet for her without even thinking about it. And I believe that she knows it...

We've been through a lot together over the past year. I remember the look of terror in her eyes when she threw a surprise foal last March. We were just getting to know each other at that point, but since then, our relationship has just grown to an extraordinary one now.

LOL, that above paragraph reminds me; she heard a noise when we first unloaded. She kept trying to jump in my pocket. (not in a dangerous way though, I would have had to correct her for that).

Don't know if I posted it or not, but here we are on a previous trail ride.

Nice looking girl. You look good on her.

Please do not be offended here but one safety tip...take some of the slack out of that back cinch. You don't want it so loose as to allow her to get a back foot caught if she were to kick up at her belly. You don't want it tight, just not hanging. Just a suggestion from a paranoid worry-wart. : )

WOW you're right... I never noticed that it was that low. I'll check it out the next time I tack her up and adjust. Thank you...

You look good with her and she looks good with you! Awesome story as well! I've almost sunk a horse in a beaver swamp ('mud' that doesn't quit) and it was a big ordeal.
I love the fact that you told her to whoa and she settled right down. I had a situation when I walked a horse right into a downed barbed wire fence (it was in deep grass and a very old fence), and got him all tangled up. I told him 'steady, easy', and he let me lift his legs out one by one. Ever since then I have taught my horses what 'easy' or 'settle' means. It could mean life or death.
