14 days and counting.

Well Miss Sierra did not like me taking her picture I guess. She was playing in the water and I was talking to her.

She started the day off being really naughty. I mean really naughty. I had not trotted her in the round pen for a few days and it was cooler today so thought that would be a good thing to do. She forgot all together how to do that. She ran into the fence, swung her rear at me and worked herself into a a real lather. When she had gone around twice without any fits I told her whoa and she came right to me. I asked her to side pass and she did that really well surprisingly. Then I put her in her outdoor pen and let her nibble for 3/4 hrs.

Later after I took a nap because I had a throbbing headache, I caught her and worked with her in the arena. She did really well. Trotted with me when I asked her. On a loose reign too. She backed OK, we did a figure eight instead of a clover. She did well. She trotted over the poles and did the best she ever has in the arena. THEN I asked her to step up on the box. She loves doing that. I finally ducked under her. She did not care in the slightest. Don't know if we will do that or not. She side passed well and we trotted some more. I am so very proud of her.

Probably will be one of the most difficult things of late that I will do is to let her go. I have really gotten attached to her. I am praying for a loving home that is going to take her to her full potential.
