One cold winter/spring day my owner came to get me. She hadn't come to see me in a long time, and really missed me, but instead of walking up to me she made me come to her. After about 10mins I gave in and happily came to see her. I'm not taken out of my pasture that often, so when she took me out everything was scary, and then she made me walk between a building and a big contraption on four round legs (wheels). We got through that eventually, and I relaxed enough to be brushed outside. Then, I saw it....
In the round pen where all the new horses go for the first week of their arrival there was this big beast. It had four legs, a mane, and most of a tail. It had an enormous head with ears that were just as big, and to make matters worse, it was taller than me!!!! It was red/white (roan) in colour. I was super scared yet so intrigued by it's funkiness that I couldn't decide wether I wanted to run away or go investigate it! My owner had her hands full with me while she laughed at my 'funny' indecision.
She finally brought me back to my pasture (after brushing me) where I could relax with my friends, and the next time she saw me the funky creature and I were happily sharing a field together :)
What, may you ask, was so scary yet intriguing to my silly little filly? A Belgian mule.. Of all things xD
