Kachina is a certified domestic horse! Well, sort of....




So, today we turned Kachina loose in the pasture! This isn't the first time we tried (the previous time failed miserably, but everyone was okay). This facebook album has pictures from one of Kachina's walks, Christmas, and then the recent 2 attempts to turn her out into the pasture.

*Update* She is letting me approach her in the pasture and I can easily catch and touch her so I took her drag rope off.

I apologize for not posting much lately, but life has been full! I completed my first semester in vet school and passed all my courses with flying colors! I also met a fanastic man this summer, and on Christmas Eve, he asked me to marry him! I said yes, of course. He is my next door neighbor, and we are so well-suited for eachother...it's crazy to think that I had to move home to meet the man that would complete me. I've lived all over the US, including spending the last 5 years in Idaho, and I meet this man while I am living at home with my parents while preparing for vet school. Life is crazy and unpredictable!

I love that picture of Kachina in the snow. She looks really pretty, and I'm glad she has transitioned into the pasture so well. I leave a halter on my hard to catch horse. I hate that I do it, but I can't waste time chasing him down as he is so far from me, our time is valuable. I do hope to work on the issue again this spring once the pasture is no longer muddy.
Congrats on vet school, that is awesome. And for you engagement- wow! Sometimes the best is truly in your own backyard! :) I'm so happy for you.

Wow, Kachina's little adventure the first time you let her out in the pasture! That kind of thing really scares me. Glad to see she has settled down.
Congratulations on meeting Mr.Right!
