Welcoming Committee

Most of the time, this is what I see when I get out of my truck:
Love her
The odd day when she's further away and doesn't hear me, I might have to wander out in the field, but she immediately comes to me once she knows I'm there. There's a bit of a routine - even if I'm actually there to catch Midge, Ginger comes running so she can say hi first, and Midge hangs back and waits til she's done. Best pony status has it's privileges apparently :)

Hanging out with me, That's a pasture buddy lined up behind her waiting to say hi as well, not Ginger's bum - she's long, but not that long lol As always, impossible to take nice photos cause she's always right next to you
Ginger will happily stand there free in the field without halter or lead while I give her a good grooming and even pick out her feet. She's the dominant mare out there so the other horses leave us alone and let us hang out unbothered, Ginger enjoys her 'spa' time so much she stands like a rock even if everyone else is running around being silly,  It's a special treat for both of us because I know she'd prefer to be outside with her friends than in the barn alone, and I appreciate the convenience of not having to bring her in every day.

Bye Ginger!
See you next time :)

  1. That's so cute!! When it's really cold sometimes I just run out with brush and pick and give mine a quick spa session.

  2. She is so like Kika, her face & dominant mare status. However Kika is more like a cat than a horse and way too independent to stick by me if there is no treats in it for her & if there is running and fun to be had - forget it. She's leading that posse - whereas Nancy would happily stand for scribes and loving time. Although if there is some yeehaw to be had she also loves to go for a jolly - but she does come right back for some more human contact after the hooha ☺

    1. Ginger used to be very cat - like, but has turned over a new leaf recently, and I'm enjoying it! We'll see how long it lasts, she is VERY playful normally. Bridget sounds exactly like Nancy!

    2. I love how similar they sound, it's like you have bay versions of my girls ☺

  3. She's got the "Mom. Mom... MOM...MOM!!!" face.

    1. I know! It makes me laugh! I think it's because Bridget is very friendly and will come say hi, but Ginger thinks she should be much more important and I am 'hers' so now it's turned into a little bit of the over the top drama she's famous for.
