Also, that is so cool that you have "girls night out" with your MOM. She is a lucky mom and you a lucky daughter!
You know I bet she would be! I talked to the people and they said I could foster her if I wanted to. Actually that is a passion of mine that I really want to do. I grew up with an autistic kid in my class and I see them everyday where I work now. One of my friends has and Autistic child and she says that I am very good with them so I have really wanted to own a horse that would be good at that and bring him or her to do that once or twice a week at a place. I should look around to see what place does that around here. Even if I just did it as a volunteer.
Yeah it is pretty cool. We go out to dinner and then we bowl on a league every Tuesday night :) Its really fun and we get time to ourselves without my dad. Lol equiniphile: "She looks like such a sweet girl. Obviously blind horses need very precise directions for everything, and their stable needs to be set up in a way that water and feed is always in the same place, etc. If you feel you're competant to do that, it would be great to take her in."
I believe I do. I have a little paddocked area which is flat with nothing she could run into even if she was playing. It is wooden fencing so she could just go through it like electric. My barn is a run in type with a really wide door frame. She would have to get used to where the wood is on the door, but I might be able to find some kind of horse friendly padding (stuff they can't eat!) so if she did run into it it wouldn't be so bad. The only thing that worries me is that my feed trough where I put the hay does stick out some. But I could pad that as well. The water remains in the same spot and she can use her sniffer to sniff that out. But I would defiantly show her where it is and I'm sure Gizmo would help with things too. I would most likely feed them in separate places so that they are getting the right amount of food. Gizmo is on a restricted diet.
