DD and 2 little granddaughters came in last night. I told the girls I had a BIG surprise for them. This morning before DD left, we went out to see the surprise. Reina got lots of treats, petting and hugging. Even after the treats were gone, she stood there, enjoying the attention. I’m thinking somewhere in her past, maybe there were children.

Our horse, Willy, was great with kids, also 💕.

Bro and I did the same thing that you did in paying for a horse. We didn't get an allowance but Dad gave us a Hereford calf for doing farm chores. That calf was the only one besides the milk cows that received grain twice a day. Bro and I saw to that. It took more than a year but we gained enough money to buy Willy.

I was about 10 by then but we had younger cousins who would visit. He was so quiet around them. Once they climbed on his back, he became the slowest critter imaginable.

3 days Reina will be here one month. This morning some time after I fed her, I went to get her with halter and lead rope. Ears up, she came right to me. I took her down the driveway and let her graze. I finally got the last mat out of her mane. She had several of those and this was the biggest one. I pulled 3-6 hairs out at a time. Been working on it a little here and there, today was the day.

Reina today at 1 month. I’ve just about got her switched over to the Nutrena Performance feed, another week and she will be completely on it. She gets 2 pounds twice a day. Over several weeks I’ll bring her up to 3 pounds twice a day until she is in good condition, healthy and shiny.

The vet said to bring her up slowly. She didn’t lose that weight all at once, so don’t try to put it back all at once. Good advice. I finally wormed her last week. I noticed she was walking with her tail held up, not high, just up. She had been letting it lay flat. I took that as a sign that she was feeling better, stronger, so I wormed her. I wanted to feed her for awhile before I wormed her.

I can see improvement already. She is going to be a very sweet horse for you. :love
