I am SO excited to show you her. I ride once a week at my stable for lessons and this morning, I asked the stable owner if she needed any help. She told me there was something I could do. There's a mare who's owner never really comes around. She pays for her board, but doesn't do anything with her. She gets turned out twice a week, but she deserves more. So now, I take care of her one on one. She's 30 years old and unrideable with a bad swayback, weak muscles and doesn't get groomed enough. So now I can come whenever I like to groom her and let her out to work her and build muscle. She is SO beautiful. She's really a sweet horse. She needs to work on her manners a bit. She does kick, and pulls while I lead her, but I just need to handle her a bit more.

Horses normally live up to 35 years, so she doesn't have much left. I was asked "just treat her nice". I'm so happy she trusted me to work with her! Kerri deserves to spend time with someone instead of just being there left on her own. I'm going to take my professional camera in a few days to get some good pictures of her.

Keeri sounds wonderful. You seem to know a lot about horses. I had to skip over some words because of the terms you used. :shrug:

Words like "sweet" and "nice"?"?

:raspberry: :raspberry:

Carolyn, I love you. :roffle:

It's more words like "mare" and "turned once or twice a week". :shrug:

Mare is a female horse. I believe I told you that already??? :shrug:

Turned out means the horses come out from their stalls so they can be in pasture with other horses.

Just a little video of her trusting me. Horses follow the leader, so it's incredibly flattering to me that she sees me as comfort and approaches me on her on free will. I know this probably isn't really interesting to you bird people, so I'm sorry about that, but that was a very big moment.

Also, you can definitely see me in the video (and by the way, it was pretty windy, so my hair's a mess), but luckily it's mostly a silhouette so I just figured screw it, because that was a really cute moment. And because I was feeling extra fruity, I added some generic background music.

That's lovely (and so are you)! I can see what you mean about her having a swayback problem though. I didn't see it in the first video but it's very noticeable in this one.
