Last week I got a chance to go out and see my mares and their babies.
In typical *dragon form, my mare, Sonora (Nora) took herself and her colt, The Fridge, away from the rest of the herd. She doesn’t come by her nickname, The Dragon, for no reason. It’s more about how she looks when she backs her ears- think The Dragon from Shrek, and you’ve a great idea exactly who she looks like when she makes that face. Though she’s all bark, no bite and is really just anti-social when she’s got a colt on her side- she’s got a great disposition, really. But before she got too far away from us, I managed to snap a couple photos.
I also got to see Dolce and Lily Filly:
And unlike her mama, Nora, Dolce let our intern Kara rub on her. In fact, a lot of the mares did!
And yes, Kara has a cast. Let’s just don’t talk about how that happened, mkay?
And that’s your Monday morning goodie from your favorite South Dakota Cowgirl.
Have a super day!
