Thansk Faustinblack. She is my baby. :) And she isn't just a pretty face. She has a wonderful mind as well. Too smart for her own good. She untied herself one night highlined, good thing she had carouselled herself enough that it kinda retied, lol.

What a lovely mare! Beautiful scenery too.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Unrelated to the camping- but she impressed me again yesterday.
I was out riding with my DH and daughter, who was bareback on our friend's fat little hobbits's pony. LOL. (My daughter was fine, he stepped on her arm, but she was fine, got right back on when I came back).
The pony spooked and dumped my daughter, then took off. So DH stayed with his horse and our daughter, and I went on Sonata after the pony. She loved it. We strategically gave chase so as to not push him farther away. She had no issues with getting straight into a canter, then stopping on a dime so I could change my plan, then running into the trees so I could lean over and try to grab the pony's reins, even when I kinda fell b/c I tripped on a downed tree. Then once we got him I decided to pony him back as I hate walking between 2 horses. They both did great, and she has never been the pony-er before.
Anyhoo, it was pretty fun. I don't know the protocol for catching a got loose horse, but it worked for us, and seemed kinda intuitive. My husband's gelding never would have been able to do it, he would have assumed he was running away from whatever the pony was running from (who was just out gallivanting at that point, lol). Snot wasn't phased in the least, and seemed to get what we were doing. :P
