Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

 Well, Comanche got carrots, and more carrots, and, of course, Peppermints!!!!   for her Christmas present.  Also has a new purple halter and lead rope.  She looks so pretty in it.  AND....she knows it.  LOL.... she's such a diva....LOL.... She likes to dress up and have her picture made.  I'm still trying to figure out how to work my digital camera and my new laptop, so, as soon as that's done, there will be new pics.  I've got to get my scd card to transfer into my computer.  The piece you put your card into is too big to fit into my laptop portal.  Now, I have to go ask someone how to do it.   I am definitely not a techie sort.     But, I am so happy my babygirl is now here, where I can visit and see her when I am off work.  I even feel safe at night to visit.  She's at a nice barn.  Its bigger than the one in New Mexico, but I'm meeting a few people here and there, so its been really wonderful.  Hopefully, soon, I will have everything in one place.  I still have to get my things here from storage.  That is our next project.....

Comanche's Here!!!

Comanche' came to Arizona on Saturday, about 4pm.  She came down the ramp of the transport trailer, and looked up, and AROUND....  at all the new places... to see.  She made me think of a tourist at Disney World!.... LOL... she had just plain curiosity.... no fear or spook at anything.  Not even the Air Force jets that were flying overhead.  She walked politely down the side of the barn, skirted the other horses in corrals, and passed daintily down the center aisle, looking around as we walked.  She had a moment of small startle when the corner auto water bowl switched on with the sound of a loud kitchen sink.... but immediately figured out, that she wanted to know what that noise, she eased back up to the water bowl...stuck her nose in...and got another loud water sound... but, she controlled her reaction, and drank from the bowl.  She's a brave little girl... not much makes her afraid.  She's settled in for the past few days, and I've had time to visit a bit.  I wanted her to settle in before taking her out of the corral, and over to the arena.  I figured it would allow her to get some rest and let her legs recover from the long trip.   The transporter had picked her up at 0600 and got her off the trailer at 1600, since he had three other horses to take to Scottsdale, before he brought her to the west side of Phoenix.    I will try and take some pics in the next few days.  I have to set my computer up for pics to be switched around from place to place.    I am just so very happy to have my babygirl with me again.    Shadow D.
