I am having separation anxiety...

So I haven't seen my mare for more than a few days in a total of 10 months I had to leave home to work down south and leave her and her foal under the care of my non horsey parents (they have horsey buddies who are helping them out and me on the phone most nights )
I last saw her in July. She was full of herself, stuck up, high on grass and thought she was an Arab, running around the field sticking her fingers up at me and generally been horrible . Once she was caught we did some serious ground work and her little brain finally clicked that mum was back...only for two days though
So, I'm back down south until November at least and I have a stuck up, fat, self entitled madam to go home to. The foal isn't a problem as she is now weaned and under the care of a close friend who is doing a fantastic job.
However, my need to get back home and sort my darling little hussy out is consuming me. I'm off out in a sec to go stock up a grooming kit

I'm also trying to find a flight home on my two days off, just to see her, but so far can't find or afford any flight up :(

So it continues any ideas on what's the first thing I should work on with the little tart? other than respect

My little smartass, after two years maternity leave...

She was not impressed with the idea of been caught...

Crazy eyes...

In May, when she was sore...


I'm thinking I will need to be wrapped in bubble wrap lol

So she is six years old, broken in at three, used as a trekking horse, has had almost two years off due to pregnancy and being a mum. Now weaned and lazing around, not knowing that come November it's boot camp baby!
