the wet squishy ones are the best ones

A year ago this horse REFUSED to get her feets wet. She would have nothing to do with this pond. We had a giant CTJ meeting about it and she finally got in.
So now my problem is that she refuses to get out.
At Klickitat ride, she got into the knee deep creek and decided that walking home in the creek was a fab idea.
She refused to leave the creek and started walking upstream like " I know the way home is just right up the creek Mamma"

She isn't a fan on endurance rides of the clean , fresh water, she loves the brown, grimy, filled with sweet nibbles water.
I was getting nervous she wouldn't drink and then realized the water wasn't gross enough for her taste.

If I had my lunge line she would have went all the way in. I have a long lead rope and I was barely hanging on to the end at this point.

She will actually dunk her head for the good nibbles she wants under water.
We now call her " The Manatee" .

She's going be feeling right at home in Alaska. You may be finding yourself pond grazing with herds of Moose up there.

Wonder what the moose will think of the new fancy spotted moose in their company?
