Best wishes with her...she really does sound like one in a million. I really hope you and her to really well together; and it sounds like you are already! Here's hoping she vet checks okay as well!!!
I was really proud of my mare today, because I was standing leaning on her corral this evening talking on my phone, and she just came and stood next to me. She had even left her evening meal to do this! Such a vast difference from the horse that stood on the other side of the corral, and I had to do approach and retreat everytime I wanted to catch her.
