Sorry I haven't had much time to continue my story... I just wanted to do a quick update to say how special I think this horse is. She is so different from Remington and Oakley. She didn't show any fear the way they did when it came time to approach her and pet on her. She is just incredible. That's why I decided to call her Shadow, because she was following me around like a shadow after only a few minutes with her.
I have had 2 rides on her now and she is so calm and relaxed. I can't wait to get her going. However, I do have a teaching job that I need to go to every day, so she has to wait a few more weeks before her real training starts. I am looking forward to it so much!
