Checking In

So, there’s not much Amber update to update. She’s doing well, and after we’ve hand-walked and rode at a walk safely for…well actually about 6 weeks now with all the crappy weather, I figured it was time to let Amber loose. For the first three days she was super chill, walking around.

Then there was this last week (make sure to have the sound up lol):

I was pretty worried, but also ridiculously happy to see her so happy. It was like she realized she could finally RUN instead of having to buck at a standstill. I don’t like her learning that she can do that, but as long as she doesn’t do it under saddle (and I highly doubt she ever will) then we’re fine lol. Since that run though, she’s been really chill, and we’re going to see if she can be out again for 15-20 minutes without being chaperoned. She has a moment in the beginning where she’s on one side of the arena before bucking and then lopes over to the gate, and then she’s done. But no more running like the first time. I know she needed to get that out.

But it’s mostly been waiting, taking pictures, and taking each day as it comes.

Getting Choco a new tag that says “Keep Calm and Give Me Food.” Because that is her in a nutshell lol.

Bunny Daisy has been getting comfy with us. I’m pretty sure it’s Daisy because it remains the only wild rabbit to get near us. They’re just so cute.

My sister getting a new puppy for her birthday, and she’s the cutest little pit ever and wants to be near you and snuggle at all times.

Granddaddy Max and Granddaughter who-isn’t-named-yet lol
Right now she’s even tinier than the dachshund LOL
I laugh so hard every time I see this because the tennis ball is as big as her head LOL

Also, thanks every one for their suggestions on a buddy! We’re looking into donkey rescues around the area!
