Good god. Have I really not updated this in almost TWO months?? ****. It was way back on the 3rd page. MYYY BAD. I've been busy, so I'm sorry to the like 2 people who may actually read this.
Kaja is doing well. She's finally almost entirely shed out, aside from about the lower half of her legs. She got hauled ~300 miles across the state 2 weeks ago by a friend, where she spent a week. My mom got to meet her finally because she didn't even know Kaja existed.
oops.. Then she was hauled back about 50 miles to the summer camp I work at.
She's out in a field with Abby and my friend's mare and gelding. Abby and the other mare know Kaja, but this gelding didn't and decided that Kaja must die. And decided that she doesn't need just discipline for herd order..she needs to DIE. The gelding has repeatedly attacked her versus just a dirty look to keep her out of his space. The field they're all in is about 12 acres, so she has plenty of room to stay away from them, but I feel bad because her friend (Abby) left her to go play with others.
Sooo Kaja has been a major cuddle buddy for me and the other human staff. She hangs out with us while we have other horses tied next to their gate and nickers at me all the time. Her old buddy Java will also be out there shortly, so hopefully she remembers Kaja and will be her friend. If this continues with the gelding however, I am going to insist he gets moved in with the horses owned by the camp rather than the pasture reserved for wrangler horses.
Oh, and Kaja got her cinch today. I found the camp saddle I had in mind for her and appears to fit decently, I just didn't have a cinch that was even close to fitting. We'll see how it fits within the next couple of days. Probably tomorrow morning.
