I agree. Treat her like the baby that she is.
Yeah, I do not agree with the run, run, run stereotype either. While my OTTB does like to run, (he certainly won his fair share of races) he's also perfectly happy to meander along lazily, roll in the mud, paw in the water, trail ride, jump and trot around like a little show pony. They're all different. Lately I'm finding more good ones than bad. Maybe the psycho is finally being bred out of them.
