Too Excited . . . Corrie is home

"To many, the words love, hope, and dreams are synonymous with horses."
~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

I got up at 4 am this morning. I just could not sleep. You would think this was my first horse and I was getting her new today! I am just so excited to have Corrie home.

Corrie is truly a special little horse. I felt an instant bond to her the first time I drove her. It is amazing just how you can click or not with a horse. Kinsey never felt like my horse. From the moment I wrote out the check for her I felt like I bought her for someone else, and maybe I did. But even before I wrote a check I knew Corrie was my horse. Never during the time that I was trying her out did I feel she belonged to anyone but me.

Now she is on my property. She is getting along with the minis. Well minus Rocky, stallion ya know. I keep him separate, but they see each other over the fence. She is not as found of Sophie, but Corrie used to be kept with young jack colts to teach them some manners. Apparently she was enthusiastic about her job, too enthusiastic. So she does not like donkeys, but I am hoping that she will warm up Sophie. Madison is still alpha mare so far. Kind of funny that little Madison tells big ol' Corrie to get out of the way.

Sensei gave me a mini ground lesson before he left. Corrie was very up, more up than I think I have ever seen her actually. Her feet definately were not hurting her at all. At one point she leapt and pulled away from me. I was a bit shocked, she has never done anything like that before. The girl has some spirit after all.

Now she is just chilling out. I wanted to do more with her today, but as soon as I got home from work the the thunder started. Damn it! Tomorrow a bath!

Picture to come soon.


  1. Glad to hear she's home. You must be thrilled. I'm sure the herd will sort it all out and get along fine. I'll be looking forward to some pictures.

  2. Yay I bet it feels great to have that girl home. Isn't that funny how the smallest pony (err horse) can boss around the biggest one.

  3. Very exciting, and glad things are going well so far!

  4. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you that you found your special pony to love, too.

    Funny to think back and remember that I knew in my heart that Apache was my special horse, but I was too scared to accept that until she had passed all of my tests first. And even then I was so nervous to the point of a minor anxiety attack at the thought of buying her. I didn't want to mess up this time. It's exciting, scary and thrilling to take the next step, as I'm sure you understand.

    I'm glad the introductions went well and I can;t wait to see some pics!


  5. Yay how exciting!! I'm sure they will all adjust to each other and become friends in no time. I can't wait to see bath pictures. :)


Thank you so much for your positive comments. I love you hear from you!
