The New Kid...

So, where'd we leave off? Oh, yes...Darling and her photos. Lots and lots of photos. 253 of them, to be exact, and did she get the shots I needed? Um...no. I had to do that myself once we got home.

And what, pray tell, was it that she ignored?

The lovely little pinto mare from the Paisley Desert, that's what!

This little mare is part of the Mustang U clan. She's 14 years old and probably somewhere between 13.2 and 14 hands. Not all that tall, but this momma is a very stout package! So far, she's settling in well. A lot of trembling going on to begin with, but that has subsided a bit. I can walk to within 10-12' of her without her bolting off in another direction. Yesterday I opened her gate into the round pen (thankfully enough sun to dry it up for the most part) where she was able to lie down and roll in dry sand. I think she was pretty happy about that.

If you're not a fan of Mustang U on facebook, I'd highly recommend becoming one so that you can stay on top of things with this little mare...because if we're right, she's harboring a wild bred fugitive inside that rounded belly of hers...

She does look like she has a baby belly. Why was she brought in instead of being out with the herd?

The Paisley horses were pretty thin, Shirley. Not sure how they determined who to keep in and who to release, but there weren't very many Sale Authority mares at the corrals. She was just 'lucky', I guess.

She's a doll! Love her coloring! Good things come in small packages (spoken from a 5'3" gal! ;)
Happy Mum's day, T!!
