I got Kita as a unhandled coming 3 yr old, trained her that summer and we have been best friends since. She was the only horse I rode through my pregnancy and the only horse that I will let the beginners ride.
On April 25th of last year Kita had a little blue roan filly...boy was she cute.
Fast Forward... in September I bought a little orphaned foal. Weaned Kita's filly and introduced her to the new foal (spence). The first day was ify...she wasn't sure about him. Thank goodness for Kita's calmness and for Spence not giving up! On the second day he was nursing happily. Kita took care of Spence as if it were her own foal until he was 5 months old and I weaned. She even came to love him!
That is just the type of horse Kita is. She seems to really care about everything/everyone else. She tries so hard to please. If Kita had a choice she would keep her foals with her until they were 3 years old. She is an amazing mare and I don't know what I would do without her.
Here is a picture of Kita and her real foal Tika!

And her is Kita and Spence her adopted foal!
