Two days after the delivery of 'Sierra Cancion and Sierra Rosa', we took a drive up to Monero Mustangs to do some easy round pen work of getting acquainted. I started with Sierra Cancion first, and she began to whinny as she was seperated from her little adoptee band...and thus, confirmed why she was chosen (unknowingly of course) the name she was given...she is a soprano for certain, lol...I don't know if I have ever heard such a high pitched whinny before!
She wasn't as thrilled about our 'engagement' as I was, it was a good hour before I could get her feet to stop moving around me and get the halter on her head. Once the halter was on, the progress from there was quick. We shared snuggles and kisses, and she had a good rub down and learned to stand while ropes were thrown to and fro and over and under. I considered it a good first start, I hope she felt the same.
Then came Sierra Rosa's turn...I initially thought she would be the challenge...well, she proved me completetly wrong, haha! She was unbeleivable from the start, no jitters, no hang ups, and loved affection! And what a sweet rose she is! She will make a remarkable advocate with a countenance as tender as the petals of the flower she is named after.
I will head out tomorrow for a few days with the Mustang Mansion, some needed
R & R for me as I have been hitting it pretty hard the last couple of months. I will enjoy the mornings with coffee on the sanctuary with Headlight, and the others I have grown an affection for, and founder ' Sandi Claypool' as well, haha...taking the guitar and hope to be 'still' enough in the evenings to 'hear' somethings that the hustle and bustle drowns out...maybe a new song will arise!
Enjoy the pics...and check out the 'Living Legends' page for new recent work completed. I am amazed that I have done 4 paintings during this travel hustle time...wow. But for the next two nights and three days...a little rest, and connecting with some wild ones.
See you in a few!
