One thing I don't get about Kiera is the "naughty dog" type attitude/expression I get from her.

Sort of like in the pawing issue during the bath, where if I catch her and make an upset noise, she stops and has that hangdog look on her face.

Yesterday evening I decided to get a quick pic of Kiera, despite all the bite marks on her back from hubby's evil mare. I went to pull her fly mask off, and as soon as I reached, she started walking away. (She HATES velcro). I went with her for a sec but she started speeding up her walk, so I stood there and said "KIERA! Where the heck are you going? Come here!"

She turned around with that same type of hangdog look on her face, slowly walked over and stood for me to pull off the fly mask. I am really not imagining things...it's pretty much the same look my old Golden Retriever would make when he knew he was caught going in the trash or chewing up a kids toy.

It's all very weird. Is it a youthful rebellion thing? She clearly knows the right thing, and will do the right thing when I call her on it. Is this something she will outgrow?

Couple pix from today...ignore the poo...the hurt ones have been hanging out near the gate/place where I feed them ever since the dog attack.

Looking great! It was interesting because I went from page 2 to the last page and barely recognized her! she grew up so different than in the first few pictures I saw. You can tell tho she is going to be filling a lot still. She's way to lean for her age AND her breeding. You may not see finish maturing until she's 5 or 6.

She has a ways to go, lol.

She tapes to over 1000 pounds now, though I havent checked her height, I DO know that I can no longer feel her ribs. Guessing she needs exercise! but not quite sure how to do that. I dont want to hurt her, and there is conflicting info out there.

Anyway a few pics from about 2 weeks ago. I took apple slices out there and became the Pied Piper of horses:
