"Hang on, Mags, I see something over here .."
I was checking something else out and didn't even see the horses at first! By the time I turned around, Mags was already down the fence line, introducing herself to our neighbors. Or should I say "NEIGHbors"?
|"Hello? Is any horse interested in being friends?"|
The one with the kind, white face walked right over to her.
|"Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Polargold's Margaret Thatcher ..."|
He was a very calm, friendly horse, and we could tell he was used to all kinds of visitors! Mags and I have been around horses plenty of times, so we were very calm, too. (Otherwise, Mom and Dad wouldn't have let us say hello.)
After Maggie and our new friend visited a while, I walked over to the fence.
I stayed right there, letting any horse who wanted to meet me come over. It's less threatening that way. I wouldn't want to startle anyone!
|"Would anyone like to meet me, too?"|
|"Oooh, you seem like a very sweet horse!"|
|"Hello. I'm D'Azul's Girl From Ipanema. You can call me Cammie!"|
It was so wonderful making a new friend! Look at how happy it made me:
|"That was the BEST adventure!!!"|
Maggie had fun, too - right, Mags?
We hope to walk that part of the trail again soon. I hope our new friend will be there, too!
