Oct. 12, 2008
My trainer just brought in a beautiful chestnut tb mare last week. Her name was Zillyco, but my trainer changed it to Tess. Since I work on sundays, I had to turn her out and I accidentally called her Tilly, but when I did, her ears perked up and she turned to face me. So I told her, that that's what I would call her from now on. When I turned her out, I stood by the rail and just watched her roll and check things out. She would occasionally come by and sniff my hand, and go back to her exploring. I talked to her calling her Pretty Girl, and Sweetheart. And then she came by the railing and she put her muzzle in my hand and I started stroking her face lovingly, when I stopped, she just stood with a relaxed look on her face.
Then, my sister came down and asked "hows she doing?" I said she seems like a pretty honest horse. Then my sister said she thought she was a pony..i gave her a confused look and went in the turn out to stand next to Tilly. From the look of where I was standing, she seemed to be only a hand or two shorter than Charmer. Then my sister said, "well she's on a slope" so I said "fine, c'mon Tilly" and I gestured her to follow me to flat ground. To my utter astonishment, she did! She kept her shoulder at level with mine, and when I turned in a circle to face my sister, Tilly walked the full 360 degrees with me! I said to my sister "see? Does Tilly look like a pony to you?" my sister said, "no, and her name is Tess" I looked at Tilly and said, "not to me she isn't" and Tilly turned her head around to look at me as if in aggreement.
Woaah! Didnt meant to write a novel! But I just couldnt wait to share!
