Hey there, good morning/afternoon/evening/night/whatever else it is for you (are you living in another dimension?)
I have a question.
On the 11th of March, I got an adorable new filly named Chamomile. On her first week with us, I would come to the stables every day to take care of her and work with her. We managed to get tons of work done! Fixed her little problem with turning to the back of the stall when I approach with a halter (she would do that at her old home too) within the first couple of days, now she comes up to me and lets me put on the halter. Fixed her biting problem. Fixed her fear of water and brushing. Even had a couple of good lunge sessions with her. Things were going great, we were bonding, she went from not paying any type of attention to me when I arrive to immediately getting her head out of her breakfast and coming over for a pet.
Until a complete lock-down was announced at the military base where I live (oh, the struggles of having a commander dad), and now I can't go see her at all. I got to see her a couple of times in the past few weeks, the first time she looked happy to see me, but after some more time passed and I arrived to visit the second time, for the first ten minutes she acted like we'd never met before.
I know it's a stupid question, and maybe she never remembered me to begin with, but is there any chance that she does remember me even after I've been absence for so long? I'm currently missing such a crucial year in her life; not only her first year with us, but her third year with anything (this is getting stupid haha). I'm supposed to be teaching and disciplining her, not leaving her to be fed and turned out by strangers only to visit once in a few weeks and give her a quick lunge session or some pets.
Sorry this is so long, oh my god. If you're reading this, hi, thank you for bearing with me throughout this whole thing!
And here's a cute emoji because I have been dying to use it this entire time and couldn't find the right place.
