Kaja the Fjord!

I took more pictures of Kaja!

She is being so good. Yesterday, I decided to test her leading skills (that have been limited to a very small space) and walk to the main barn. To make things even more interesting, it was in the dark and very windy. Guess who did it like a pro? This little Fjord.

She also walked through the barn, ignoring all the big horses trying to sniff her without spooking. She stood tied up very politely and didn't fuss about being brushed. I also wasn't sure how she would put up with her feet being cleaned out. She's lifted up her fronts for me, but I was hesitant about her backs. I attempted to wrap a leadrope around her pastern and pull up to avoid her kick zone. Nope. She didn't like that and just let me pick them up.

Her fluffiness really hides how skinny she is. :/

She's perfecting her stink eye already. She and Abby will be quite the pair one day.

herrrrp derp.

Final post, I promise!

After some grooming, Kaja and I went into the arena to investigate and work on being caught.

She was a little sh*t about being caught. She'd run away from me until I got the leadrope and then stopped and turned to me like, "Oh hey. What's up? How long have you been there?" gah. We did that a few times until I left her and went to sit down and just watch her explore. Nope. She came walking over to me like she was confused why we weren't playing her little game anymore. She was much more catchable after that.

My friend was also there and she played with Kaja a bit.

Kaja leading without a lead rope, being a wonderful little girl....

...until she realized there wasn't a leadrope.

She's such a cutie!

I've also played that leadrope trick on Indie, with the same reaction.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

Her mane will be roached eventually. I'm not sure how she'll react to clippers, but I may borrow some soon to get her used to the sound. I may take a pair of crappy old scissors I have and hack at her mane a bit. It's ridiculously thick.

And I know..the poor thing. At least she has calmed down and isn't scared of us anymore.
