Update from Palomino
Here's the latest update from Palomino, about baby Rocky. Enjoy! Terri
Just a quick note. Rocky is doing wonderfully.
He is in Dayton with Matt and I, and our friends are staying with the
boys to "watch the farm" haha.
|Rocky, pretty boy |
We went for his first "walk down the real road"
tonight. He did very well, but he did think that the cars were
extremely scary the first time one went by. But by the 3rd one, he
wasn't quite so scared. He is learning his commands quite quickly and
is growing into a very strong young colt. He would approach the other
horses in the corral and stop about a foot away. He isn't acknowledging
them yet, but he will when he is ready.
|Rocky meets a scary horsey! |
Every time Rocky met someone (people) new he would
sniff them, back up, pin back his ears and stomp his feet. I kept
feeling like he was looking for someone. I believe he was, as when he
sniffed Shirley today, he definitely did not pin his ears or back up.
He started nuzzling her and seemed right at home. Shirley was the
first one who fed Rocky when we got him and he definitely is not
forgetting her. He was so excited to see her! It's like his long lost
mommy is back. So he has two mommies for now.

Aww ... How sweet that must have been for Shirley to be remembered by Rocky!
