The fog still hasn't really lifted but when I got to the barn to groom Ms Gingersnap, it was immediately apparent that someone needed a job. She was being a little ignorant about standing tied or even just generally standing still or paying attention to anything except where here boyfriend was. Granted, patience is not one of her virtues, but I was still annoyed. To give her her due, she's come along really far from the horse that used to scare people by doing all sorts of crazy acrobatics while somehow never pulling on her tie ring. These days, she's normally only a bit fidgety if I leave her alone for a while and she gets bored. Yesterday, the constant moving around looking for her friend was a little much. Having had a really herd bound horse once before, it's not something I care to repeat or encourage in Ginger :)
So, off we went to the ring. Drama pony was on full show. I think she was pretty much "I can tell my owner is annoyed even though she's trying to hide it! So now I'm pretty sure she is taking me somewhere far far away to beat me and murder me and bury me in an unmarked grave. I'll never see my boyfriend again!!!!" Which meant she was super spooky and silly and lunging consisted of her trying to run away from me for the first couple of minutes.
