Springing into Spring

For the past week Raven has been downright bouncy. She has lost about 50lbs since the beginning of the Five Pillar Plan, and we finally started the SmartFlex Repair last week. On Saturday she threw a hissy fit about something in the paddock and started pronging around like a gazelle followed by a rearing episode worthy of being Black Stallion cover art. Today David reported that she had a similar temper tantrum when he locked her out on the pasture for couple of hours (so that the goats could have some time in the big paddock without getting the chance to chow down on the horse tails). I have always hoped to be back on her in April, and it looks like we are right on schedule.

She's probably just feeling the Spring coming on and so that's why she's so 'happy'.

I'm thinking the April posts will be very entertaining! Were her legs okay after the Spring Fever episodes?

That or she's feeling the Heat!

LOL, verification word: fiervid!

Geez, Grey Horse -- if what i witnessed is Raven "happy" I don't want to be within fifty yards of her
when she's "testy". I haven't seen a display like that since my little sister was 13 years old.

[erification word: "hazle" -- a clear anagram for She Who Must Be Obeyed, the *real* Queen of Farcical Farm.]
