|There is a small herd of minis that meet me at the gate and swarm me, so here some of them are, welcoming you! They never fail to make me happy.|

The weather is almost a blessing in disguise as it's stopping everyone from riding and giving Ginger some quiet time at the barn, which I think she needs in order to really settle. She's still not eating all of her meals and is drinking her water kind of randomly - she's drinking the right quantities, but she gets busy watching things or exploring for hours on end and I think sort of forgets she needs to eat and drink. Then, she must suddenly realize she's hungry/thirsty and eats a pile of hay and drinks an entire bucket of water. She still won't spend time in the barn unless someone is in there. I'm not super worried because it's only been a couple of days and she's always a big worrier when things change even slightly. This was another big change for her so I expect it will be a week at least before she really feels at home and lets her guard down a bit. I was there about an hour ago and she was racing around the pasture and having a great time splashing through puddles and spooking herself, ie acting like normal :). I didn't have the heart to interrupt her fun - particularly with turn out time being a bit limited due to the weather.
