She will be staying where she is until the beginning of next month while we get things squared away here and get through an upcoming trip out of town so we can be here to really supervise the whole introductory period and make sure everyone is playing nice with each other in our pasture. The new barn should be here in about two weeks and Katy and I will be mini-izing the fence next weekend. The only downside to this whole arrangement is that she is so far away that visiting in the mean time isn't really an option
The only catch is that she is currently running in a small herd that has a stallion ( a pretty palamino paint) and there is a fairly good chance that there is a baby on board for an early summer arrival. Not exactly what we were looking for, but not a "bad" thing either - and since it isn't even 100% certain, I wasn't going to walk away from what I really wanted, her!
So, here is HollyHula: (the pictures aren't great, I was too busy falling in love to take very many - but I am sure I will take way too many once she is home with us for good)
Jake, my son, with HollyHula -- not two seconds earlier they were both looking right at me and perfectly posed -- of course she turned away just before I actually snapped the picture
And, here is the maybe-baby daddy. HE is the sweetest and most friendly little mini I have ever been around. He was lapping up any and all attention he could get before we took just our girl into the barn for one-on-one time:
