AN ANNIE UPDATE! Via video!! Come pet her with me!

As most of you know, most of the time it is just me here.   So, handling the camera while I do stuff with the horses is an acquired art – that I haven’t quite acquired, yet.

But, I tried today… I wanted you all to hear Annie’s quirky nicker and to watch her kind eye.  I also wanted you to see how easy she is and how kind.  I think this mare is very, very sweet.  She isn’t easy to blowup or startle.  Annie is a solid gal.  Feet on the ground.  Kind.  Willing.

I feel lucky that she’s here.

As far as measuring, she seems really tall to me.   I did my best to tape her and I think she is only 16h.  Not sure.  Maybe 16.1h.  I would have sworn she was at least 16.3 or 17h.  But, I’m short so maybe they all look tall to me.  Dunno.  I do have a stick, which is much more accurate, but she wasn’t OK with it so I used a tape.

Just an fyi… after I stopped the video, I went and got my limbers.  As I was trimming the tree branches, she was nibbling my scalp.  When I’d trim a branch over her head, the branch would fall right on her back, neck or head – and she wouldn’t flinch.  Solid.  Annie is a lovely mare, for sure.
