I got backup

I got backup for raising Shandi. I just couldn't do it on my own, it would mean that I would have to grow up and I don't want to. Here is my niece out in the pasture with the nanny horse...I am getting a much needed break.














So who is the nanny? Is it Mary Poppins, the Pacifier, or some other famous nanny?
It is Ginger, the grande dame of our herd. She does not put up with bad manners. If a horse or person misbehaves she has a discipline ladder:
1. THE LOOK
2.THE TAIL SWISH
3. THE STOMP
4. THE BUTT TURN AND THREATENING COCK OF THE HOOF
I don't know what happens after that, no one has pushed her past number 4.














She made sure that we all went to our corners to eat. She also didn't let us try to play musical treat tubs. It was go to your tub and stay there until it is gone, if you are leaving your tub it better be to go straight out to the pasture or you are in trouble.
Some how I think I am getting nannied also.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

It's good to have a proper boss mare - that'll teach your niece some manners!

Every pasture needs a boss mare to keep some semblance of order!

I don't think I would want to push my luck as well.
