I'm Gentle--And I'm Starting to Like You
Same day, different story.
I cleaned her stall with her in it and she stayed in with me. She sniffed the wheelbarrow and the shovel and watched with open curiosity and calmness. A couple times she did shy away when I'd move too close or fast. And, I clucked at her to move away, too, so I wouldn't get kicked. I'm working on having her respect my space and know when she's invited in to my space.
I fed her from my hand in her stall, and she did very well with that. She seemed content to eat that way.
What a sweet filly.
Also, there is a scar on her top right hindquarter. It looks like it was stitched up at some point--maybe 2 months ago.
