Bridget is Home!


The barn owners reported last night that Bridget arrived and basically marched right in to her stall and started eating her hay quite happily. No drama at all. The hauler reported she was easy to haul and deal with as well. What a relief for me to hear! With Ginger being so high stress it will be welcome news if Bridget requires a little less attention and time settling in to new places and situations. Is it too early to hope her confident little self will not only be a help for Ginger, but me as well? In exactly two weeks I'll start to find out. I'll be at the barn saying hi to the girls myself! I've missed my Ginger mare more than I can describe, and I'm really look forward to getting to know Bridget better.
Looking for Ginger out in the field. Bridget Jones is slightly chubby, so has to stay in the diet pen.
 It's killing me that I can't be there, so G made a trip out to the barn this afternoon to say hi to the girls and stuff them with treats. G called me while he was there and the first thing he said was "She's NICE. She reminds me of Lainey!" Lainey was G's favorite horse ever, so I think Bridget and him will get along just fine. The fact he sent me about 20 pictures of Bridget and just 1 of Ginger also tells me he may have found a new favorite ;) Since Ginger and I are best buddies, it's only right Bridget should have an admirer in G.

This one is funny to me because the angle of it gives you an idea of Bridget's size in comparison to the photographer, 6'5" G. I bet they look cute together! ("You make that horse look so tiny and cute!" is not what he wants to hear, I'm sure :)
