Wanted to take many photos of this engaging little horse so I could show her amazing progress. I'm still in the adjustment phase of having three horses and photo taking has sort of gone the way of blog writing, not so much these days. This one shot says it all for me - Autumn was once a princess and she has reclaimed her throne. I have become her personal minion. Can you read her expression? "Step lively there minion, fetch me my next course, how about some of that lovely beet pulp."
Three weeks have passed since we brought Autumn in. She has moved from being a horse in crisis to a much-less-but-still skinny horse who is full of life and energy. Well behaved and polite, she has clear preferences like "You can just take away this nasty grass hay and please return with my yumsy alfalfa." She has become my horse officially, our local rescue is full with only six horses. My little herd has become three. For now.
