Clearing up a few things...

Denali wanted me to clear up a few things about her campaign.... She doesn't want anyone to stand behind her policy platforms....we all know how that might turn out. She suggests you stand next to her, it will just be safer for everyone involved.  As a friend of mine put it. The world really might end in 2012 if these girls take over.

Also. To quickly explain it. I saw photos of Denali being ridden walk/trot....they were taken LAST WEEK!!! SURPRISE!! I don't know if I'm suppose to know about it or not. I guess the vet road her twice last week. The vet knows that I'm a freak when it comes to it and that I've resigned myself to her being a pasture pet, so I think it's a surprise? I have no idea how she did. The girl who showed me the picture said she did great. Yesterday she was TEARING ASS around the field yesterday. The girl I work with and I figure it's only a matter of time before she breaks a leg. It was the kind of gallop where you can't figure out how their legs get over their heads. It sort of reminded me of the road runner.

It just amazes me how happy she is now. I didn't realize that she was unhappy before, but now that I've seen her so happy I'm not sure I can give her less than a large huge pasture with some BFF's.

Work yesterday involved lots of hiking around fields yesterday with horses practicing their black stallion impressions when they were moved from their field. We put a few horses into the summer pasture. They were running and running and running. It was beautiful. Denali and two of her friends stood at the fence and looked so jealous. It made me sad to see her look so jealous, but seriously mare. You're so jealous. I fed her her evening slop, and she stood around with me after (instead of going off with her friends.) Made me feel loved! :)

Have a great day!

Haha, I know that gallop! My mare likes to try it in the arena... then do a reining stop, spin around, throw in some bucks/rears/cow hops and repeat. I stand there and try not to cringe.

Awesome!!!!!!!!! can't wait to see the pics...can we?!!
Its funny isn't it, we provide a top notch stall with all the bells and whistles but really they seem to be the happiest rolling in the mud and having a plot of land to roam in. Nature runs deep in their souls! I'm happy to hear you find Denali to be happy :)
