Great day with the Mere (intentional spelling) today! We're still waiting for her ma to get release paperwork in order before doing much. For now we're just grooming, doing a little bit of groundwork, and hanging out...which is just fine, she needs quite a bit of work with grooming anyway because she has a powerful drafty butt and shoulder that swing at you unexpectedly when she notices something in the distance. She just needs to pay better attention, she really isn't trying to be rude or disrespectful...yet she is unintentionally. We're definitely getting there! She's learning that if she doesn't pay attention on her own I'll make her pay attention
She really is the sweetest thing though, she absolutely loves being groomed and petted and loved on. She has such a beautiful, kind soul, and it is so sad to see her demonized by so many people.
I'm trying to figure out what I'll be doing with her when I get her. I'll probably be moving within a year or two, but for now I don't know if I should bring her back to the stable, I really like things to be quiet and to myself so I feel like I'd really like if she could stay put, but at the same time the stable has the nice big covered arena and everything...we're still not sure if the nearby stable's (uncovered) arena would be open to us if we stayed put. That may be the deciding factor.
I don't know, it probably would be good to face all of the people who have had problems with both of us as of late, but I don't know...I really like things to be peaceful and calm.
