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.
