    She is doing very well! She's calm, cool and collected. We can now clean her stall without her running into a corner, she meets us at the stall door and calls to us as soon as we walk into the barn! But more than likely, that's for feed:)

    She started an annoying habit while eating though, she kept hitting her bucket eith her knee and pawing but I don't know why? She is fed in a stall with no other horses to take it from her. We had a discussion about it yesterday and she seemed to understand that that was not a good idea but we'll see what today brings.

    She is shedding pretty good too. Can't wait to see how she sheds out in the spring! I will get some new pics this weekend and post them.

    Ugh .. the pawing. I have to feed my boys out in the pasture in tubs on the ground. They have both grown very fond of pawing and spilling their feed all over the ground..

    .... can't wait to get them home in a more controlled environment.

    My boys are pee-ers....need them to pee on command, toss them some fresh hay and watch them straddle it...

    My arab is one of those who while eating out of his bucket (hanging on the fence) he will hold one knee up bent the entire time, like he just can't believe that such delicious food appeared before him...

    Apache does that too, then I guess she thought it would be fun to watch her food bounce around the bucket by hitting it with her knee??? Weird habits these horses get into!

    Gunner also climbs in the water trough .. both front feet ... and then paws and uses his face to splash 1/3 of the water out of the trough ...

    We have hayracks on their stalls and they still pull it out but none of mine pee on theirs....thank goodness. It's too expensive to be wasted!
