Last week, not exactly a high-light for her.
Two wolf teeth extracted, two days straight of stalling due to extreme wind and rains, and she even managed to get her head stuck between the pipe panels one morning. Found her there, sheepishly waiting for help to be freed.
Her ratty week was crowned by a very winding trailer ride along rolling hills to Dorado Andaluz during driving rain and thunderstorms. By grace of a wonderful new friend, Jen, and her husband, I was able to get her all the way there safely.
Miles upon miles, they drove. Meeting wonderful people is such a treat. It’s hard enough to do this alone – without them, I wouldn’t have been able to bring Valiosa with me to Somerset. There’s no way I can thank them enough.
Catching her breath in the barn.
She’s got one month to win the other mares over.
Driving home, the wind and rain whipped down hard. Difficult to see out the windshield. Parts of the road flooded along Latrobe. Some skidding.
Back home. Wet socks. Steaming mugs of tea. Thick slices, slabs really, of my bread. Walnuts inside, poppy seed on top. Slathered thick with almond butter.
If you’re gluten-free, you know how rewarding it all was.
