I'm staying with my sister and brother in-law. Sage is in their pasture that has two other fields connected to it. The one pasture runs right up to his uncle's house and property.
Last week my sister and I were headed to town. I saw his grandkids playing in his yard. I didn't think anything of it. Sage tends to hang out in the part of the pasture near his place.
Come to find out, my brother in-law recieved a call this week from his uncle. He wanted to let him know, last week when his grandkids were over they called Sage over to pet her. Turns out the granddaughter that was twelve thought the horse was her grandpa's. She ended up taking Sage out, saddling her and the grand kids all took turns riding her. I was happy to hear that no-one was hurt, Sage hadn't been rode in a few weeks prior due to the ice and not having shoes on.
He said he walked out the back door and saw two of the grand kids on her. He immediately had them get off her and told them it wasn't their horse and to NEVER do that again. He told his son about the incident and his son wanted to know if I was going to sell her because he was looking for a kids horse.
I had mixed feelings about the whole thing. I was glad no-one was hurt but I'm not fond of the idea of someone riding my horse without me there or my permission. I'm aware it was a kid, one the has had some experience with horses. I just don't know if the experience is like that of their cousin, very very new to horses, very hard handed and it's run run run.
My brother in-law was like well now we know someone she could sell her horse to. My sister was quick to advise him, Sage is my baby and that would NEVER happen in a million years. Lol
I'll chalk it up to new experiences while in Oklahoma. Lol Atleast I know Sage is a mellow horse through and through and will tolerate just about anything...so far. (* Knock on wood *) lol
