1.) That person is full of %$^*. I love your mare. Lots of people on this forum, people who know horses, breed them, train them, and have years and years of experience also love her. She is a beautiful horse and I'm glad to see that she passed many traits down to her beautiful foal. I sense jealousy. ;)
2.) It's awesome that you volunteer! Sorry that you had to see that, but at least you were there to make sure it was broken up.
3.) Babies will be babies... she's still figuring out the rules and regulations of being alive, and I'm sure she'll have plenty of little nicks and scratches to remember her adventures with when she is older, like any other horse or person- the good thing is that she has a loving, responsible owner and a very good mama mare to keep her from being hurt in any serious ways while trying to figure out the mysteries of boundaries and fences, so don't sweat it and enjoy yourself while she's itty bitty!

You have a fantastic mare who produced a fantastic baby, and no matter how many bar fights you break up or rude people who can't keep their traps shut and their lies to themselves, in the end you still have these two lovely girls to pick you up and a forum of people who support you. Chin up darlin! Can't wait for more pictures!

Couldn't have said it better myself Soenjer Totally agree.You have a darling foal, your mare is gorgeous don't listen to other people who have nothing but crap to say!
Regarding cut on ear, my dear, you should have a colt. Everyday I have to put manuka honey gel on some new cut or other that His Lordship has managed to acquire. I've stopped worrying and realise this is just part of
A. Being an impossibly active and bouncy foal and
B. Being a colt.
They heal fast and it's all part of learning to be more careful (or that's what I tell myself)
And lastly as for being a volunteer - you GO GIRL!! What an awesome thing to do. Unfortunately though you are going to be exposed to a lot of people who not actually evolved much past the Neanderthal. Keep calm and carry on and make sure you spend plenty of time with people who ARE more highly evolved
Oh and don't forget - you have a whole room to come to come and stay in at our place when things get tough

My filly used to LOVE to ignore me and not let me catch or pet her. So I would get a chair sit in her pasture and read a book and ignore HER. About the 2nd day she could not take it anymore. Now you could not beat her off of you. Here are some pictures of my little girl! Your little girl is gorgeous!!! Congrats!

Novel time!


The one and only photo I got as she was too bloody smoochy and I had my mum, my brother and a friend there taking photos, but they haven't put them up yet!

Firstly, major thanks for restoring a little of my faith in humanity I guess I was just gob smacked that someone can waltz onto someone else's property and start slagging off every horse they see. I'm sorry but I was dragged up by my ears to show manners and respect for others and as this lady is so much older than me I really expected her to treat others as she would be treated. I've just got my ideals on human nature and unfortunately, not only with volunteer work and nursing but in everyday life, I'm constantly reminded how bloody awful my generation and the next are becoming. And people in general I guess!

Pan as you can see is getting that moth eaten look her ears are black, apart from the fluff inside and her butt is getting darker. She is finally showing some of her mother's nature and has developed into a big smooch who just wants snuggles and kisses and scratches. Yesterday she was reminded about personal space when she turned her big butt on my brother for a scratch. Now picture this, a 16 year old in cammo, 6ft4 and galloping towards 120kgs, works with cattle, shoots guns, loves hunting, not much experience with horses. Then add a 2 month old filly who doesn't yet understand personal space and wants a butt scratch. She stood on his steel boot caps, shoved her butt in his gut and received a hearty shove back. He didn't mean it to be mean but Pan ended up facing him, on her her butt, looking as though she had just had a huge telling off from her mum needless to say she was much more polite after that and still enjoyed hugs and pats from him

Will try and see her before I head off to CHCH. AND FLOOD THIS THREAD WITH PHOTOS! Mwahahahaha

Thanks again guys

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

I've never posted on this thread, but that didn't mean I wasn't stalking it looking at the pretty baby pictures! I think your mare is gorgeous, and that creature (won't even call her a human) was incredibly rude to say such mean things about your mare! I would gladly have her standing in my backyard ;)

very thankful for all the kind words. Have said 'see you later' to my girls today photos to come. Had to check Pans ear and am very happy to report she was good to put the halter on and let me get the scab off and pop some antiseptic on her. Afterwards we just hung out and she tried to get in the car as Freya tells her off for trying to sneak some lunch
Photos probably up tomoz as they are on my flatmates phone and she has late shift at the hospital tonight. Watch this space
