Today, I felt that the Three Donkateers and pony sidekick were settled enough to venture out into the 6 acres. Besides, they had Norma with them and Norma knows the ropes of the 6 acres. So, I opened the gate.
Immediately, they ran to the furthest point.
AFTER THE SOJOURN – What Norma wants, Norma gets.
I left them all out there to do what they wanted.
At dinner time, Norma indicated that she wanted back in with Dalton and Gwen.
Norma is no fool. She makes calculated decisions. So I asked myself why did she want in with Dalton?
Maybe Norma was a bit disappointed that the new pony didn’t instantly love her. After all, she instantly loved the pony. As soon as she was let into his pen, she went straight up to him and looked at him so hopefully. She wanted that pony friendship she misses so much. Truly, I had never seen her march up to a new horse like she took her position next to Rocky.
Rocky doesn’t know of Norma’s epic experience with ponies. He doesn’t know what an expert pony helper Norma has been. He doesn’t see her pony love and knowledge.
But he will.
Until then, I think Norma can only take small doses – as she figures out her position with him. I think she is a bit confused on why Rocky isn’t her instabud and she wants to feel love at the end of the day, which Dalton gives her.
Still, I will keep Norma coming and going… because I’d sure love to see her ponydesires met with Rocky the half blind pony.
