Well, she has been in the "peach state" (Georgia) for a week now and has settled in like she has lived here her whole life! What a elegant and loving mare!
Her 2 week trip here cost her some weight, but she seemed to arrive in good health.... just a bit weary.
During her first week she has established herself with her pasture buddy, Kara had her little toes trimmed gotten some good quality food in her little tummy and received lots of lovin'! (Neck and tummy scratches are the ones liked best!)
We are busy trying to put some weight on her and working with her feet. It looked like it had been quite some time since she had seen a farrier! The farrier did find a small stone well up in her frog that he had to dig out. Miss Suzie was a bit sore afterward, but seems to be recuperating nicely.
She seems to enjoy mealtime and is slowly adding on the weight. Miss Kara better beware when the food is served! Miss Susie MUST be served first!! Seems Miss Kara had forgotten her manners that "guests" are served first and the regulars eat last. It is Miss Suzie's role in life to constantly remind her! (Wonder if Miss Suzie Q will remember that when she is no longer the "guest"!)
I am thrilled to have this mare and have enjoyed her loving personality. She must have been someone's loving companion to be so attached to humans!
We will keep you posted on her status as the months go by and send pictures as she gets in shape.
