When One Barn Door Closes.....

Another one opens.

Literally, the day that Loretta left me, another pony kind of fell into my lap.

You might know (and if not, you should know!) Tracey over at the Mustang Diaries blog. She has been a local blogger, trail riding, and Mustang friend of mine and my sister's for several years. I enjoy her photography, her talented and witty writing, her gentle spirit with horses- her work with Mustangs in particular.

She just came along and had this little bay roany pony for me.


Call me crazy.

I don't care.

So yes, I have a thing for roans, but that is pure coincidence.

Last Sunday my sister Paint Girl, her Other Half, Ranch Boy, and I went to see this new little mare with a Bad Reputation.

She impressed us with her calm demeanor and sweet disposition. I can tell this is a mare that is going to enjoy having her person as much as her person is going to enjoy having her.  She is exactly what I was looking for.


So, I have been busy at the ranch. My Boy moved out of Loretta's pasture into the back pasture, so I've been scooping poop and raking, raking, raking to get the new one cleaned up for the new girl on the block.

I even found some time to get in a trail ride with Ranch Boy! Here is the goofy shot I took of him. I mostly wanted to capture the yellow balsam root flowers that are blooming. The big yellow horse, Vegas, was a bit annoyed, I'm afraid.


In case you were wondering, I have heard that Loretta is doing well with her previous owner and I will keep you updated on her progress!

I will post more about the new girly after she arrives and I can get some new photos.

Oh, I am having a sale in my Etsy shop, 15% off everything through Friday! I will be closing the shop for the weekend. Use coupon code May15 at checkout!!

I have no idea why my comment posted 3 times! Probably had something to do with commenting from my cell phone, I do recall having some kind of issue when I was trying to get out of your blog! Dang phone!

Paint Girl, you are a good human on earth.

Cousin B said...

She is really beautiful. Sometimes, things happen for a reason....but, I'm glad Loretta is good. I LOVE the name Bad Reputation, are you gonna keep it?

Rodger said...

From her posture to the colors of her hair, that mare is probably one of the most beautiful in your stable. I like the nickname you gave her more than the name she was given before, haha. She's surely going to be healthier under your care.
