The Emmy Goes To....Me!

Actually, her name is M&M, but I think Emmy suits her better. A sweet cross between her mom, an appaloosa mare, and a pony stallion. Her coat is red roan with a buffy white blanket-- just a couple little subtle appy spots. She's really more a small horse than pony and is 8 years old. 

Our neighbors were moving and selling off their horses so I took the opportunity to increase our herd. The main objective is to have a horse for the niece and nephews to learn on this summer. 

The welcoming committee (Paisley and geese) were on hand for her arrival, and later she got to meet Chy and Cerra amid lots of squealing and kicking. Everyone survived and finally exhausted themselves to a tenuous acceptance. By tomorrow they won't be able to live without each other.

This will be a fun opportunity to start "Level 1" with a new horse--she needs it!
