Just wanted to give you an update on my beautiful girl.
"Destiny Spirit" is her new name. Everybody yelled at me because they thought Spirit wasn't a "pretty" enough name for her.
Destiny is an absolute dream. Within the first hours of having her, she let me braid her mane and tail and completely brush her out. On the second day, she was halter broke and letting me lead her around the pen like she had done it a hundred times before. She is so loving and affectionate with everybody, horse or human. She nickers and whinnies at the other horses to say hi and will barely let you muck her stall because she wants to be right by your side. She is so calm and trusting that if she is laying down, she will let you sit right in front of her and she wont even attempt to move or get up. Once a day she is let out into the arena with a 1 1/2 year old filly so they can run and play for half an hour to an hour. She loves this time the most. It is so cute to see her run and frolick about. She has grown taller and has lost her protruding belly (after several wormings) and her coat is soft and shiny. She gets 2-3 flakes of alfafa per day supplemented with Grow Colt, sweet feed and baby carrots.
The farrier will be out this Wednesday for a trim. She will lift her hoof no problem, but is still a little squiemish when I try to pick them so it should be fun. She has a slight too much angle to her left pastern so we might also have to do some corrective shoeing.
Gail- I am so estatic that she is mine. I am honored to be able to take care of such a magnificiant animal. To think of the fate she would have had if not for you........
Destiny Spirit and I am forever indebted to you. You gave her the chance to grow into a happy, healthy mare. A opportunity her mother never had.
I cant wait to get another one of these incredible foals. My heartfelt respect goes out to you for what you do for these animals.
