I'm so sorry speedracer
While she was thrashing around I just had a horrible thought that she was about to drop dead. She slammed into the post really hard but she had awareness of what was going on, because at first she started to come forward, right on top of me then she lurched back and to the side to get away from me, hit the post and Sundance then tried going forward. Sundance was tied and I am so surprised and so proud of him because through all that he didn't spook, not even when she hit him. he just backed up as far as he could to try to get out of her way. As soon as it ended I let him go, I was more concerned about her.
When I went back down later I was very cautious about feeding her in her usual spot in the corner. If she had had another fit she probably would have killed herself if she had crashed into the panel or something.
I just know I can't lose her. She's mine and I'm "her's", it's always been that way.
This is the mare that from the time she was walking she'd run her old owner out of the pen, teeth bared, heels flying. They thought I was crazy for actually wanting her. She was the cutest foal I had ever seen, and had such a presence and personality. She loves showing off but she's definitely a one person horse. It took her 3 years to tolerate my husband and for the longest time the only way anybody except my cousin could pet her was if I was right there with them.
She trusts me completely and saved me from being trampled after a mare I had knocked me down.
Chanti was coming right for me, with my huge QH mare right behind her. There was no way they could go around me because I was between the tack room and the gate. She stopped inches away from me and spun around away from me and she pinned her ears at my mare and made her turn back, then she went around the building and came back to me to make sure I was ok.
She's always been very intelligent.
