Young Sassy-britches and the Old War Mare

The best medicine after a long sickness is sunshine and horse hair, I believe. I’m not strong enough to ride yet, but I needed time with my horses. It’s still hard to walk out there and see just two mustangs, but Brisa’s new person is *wonderful* about sending updates and it sounds as if they’re getting along brilliantly. I’d planned on sending Trinity back to the trainer for another 30 day refresher course this month, but the unexpected medical issues and expenses have forced me to put it off a little while. I worry that an entire winter off will make her a difficult ride once I can get back in the saddle again, but her manners on the ground have been excellent and she’s good company when I’m feeling sorry for myself. So, we’ll see what the next couple of weeks bring.

Trinity seems to have taken the lead mare role – she’s faster and bolder than Gypsy, but when it comes to food or water, she yields to the old war mare. They’re getting along really well, though I worry that Gypsy won’t handle being left by herself very well.


Gypsy looking skeptical.


This is Trinity’s goofy “Do I get a treat now?” face.


She’s finally starting to shed out. 😀 Must be spring!
