Ana arrived his afternoon. She was a little stressed when she got off the trailer but she's settling in nicely at her new home now. She's in a separate paddock for now but has touched noses with 3 other horses in neighboring paddocks. She will stay in there for a couple of days until the BO feels she's ready to meet more horses. If that goes well she'll be turned out into the pasture with the rest of them.
I'm so excited and exhausted at the same time. Couldn't sleep last night, been running around like a nervous mother waiting for her first child to be born.
Spent the last 3 hours with her, just watching her to make sure she's ok. At one point I went into the paddock to pick up some loose strings and she just followed me around like a puppy dog. I tried out her new halter on her and it seems to fit; also spent some time grooming her which she seemed to enjoy.
The previous owner gave me her bridle for free and is letting me borrow a Pessoa saddle for a few weeks until I can get my own. Such a nice lady; so lucky that she sold her to me. I still need a girth, stirrup bars, stirrup leathers and a saddle pad so that's the next thing on my agenda.
I might ride her bareback tomorrow since it's supposed to be nice out.
Anyway, that's my big news for today. Hope everyone else is doing well.
