The Red Mare is coming home. Or rather. She's coming to my current barn. She's never been there before so it won't exactly feel like home, but that's just quibbling over details.
That means I'll have two (two! 2!) mares at the same barn (technically I think they'll be stall neighbors too... WHEE!).
Very exciting. I recognize that moving Pia back into a traditional training barn setting might trigger a bit of a relapse with some of her issues (stall grumpiness, aggressiveness, etc) but hopefully so long as we can keep her body happy, we can work through the emotional distress. If it really doesn't work, or starts spiraling the wrong way... well then I'll gladly send her back to summer camp for more training, or just to live there without training as a trail horse for my semi-regular visits. Frankly I'd like to get to the point where both mare get to go to Summer Camp for a least a month once a year. I think it'd be good for them.
So if Pia is the Red Mare (based on coat color) I guess that makes Prairie the Blue mare.
Which she sort of is when she's purpley-black and not bleached-out-bay. Or maybe she's the Blue Mare because her European roots have stamped her with a slightly socialistic political stance..
All I care about is that I have a plan.
I'm ready to amend it at any moment, but - at least we have a plan.
