Bella's Easter Bonnie Surprise

Bonnie is here!! She is so much more beautiful than even her pictures showed. Bella immediately took to her and she has been tongue flapping and licking Bonnie just like she's her own baby. It's very sweet. Bella still follows me around and gives me lots of kisses too. Bonnie's a bit shy around humans, but since Bella shadows me everywhere I go, little Bonnie follows right along. I was laying in the grass taking pictures and she hopped on my back! haha.

Bella is so happy with her goat baby. Now she doesn't have to "play" mommy with me. She has a real kid to look after. She is taking her job very seriously and none of the dogs get within 3 feet of me or Bonnie without getting head butted.

She won't let Bonnie nurse, which is good since I NEED that milk, haha...and Bonnie needs to stay weaned.

First she sees the feet...

...Then the head. "Oh, nooo!"

In other news, Treely's new trainer just came and got her today. She'll be going for 30-60 days of training about an hour away. So, I might not have any Tree mare posts for a while. Hopefully I can go up and take pictures of her pulling a cart (since she won't be doing any of that at my place, I need to at least have proof that she can, haha). She was such a good girl getting on the trailer. She's never been in a step up trailer, so she stopped and sniffed for a while then just decided to pick up her big ol' feet and step up. Good girl! Believe me, that's a definite improvement from the original loading method where at least two people get behind her and PUSH! Needless to say, she's come a long way.


  1. Awwwwwwwwwwww, how adorable! I meant to comment on your post about Bella's surgery. I was so sad for her but I'm happy to see this post! They look like a ton of fun to have around! That pic with Treely is priceless!

  2. I forgot to add...that's awesome about Treely's training. I can't wait to see some pics of her at work!

  3. They are fun. Bella's like a little dog following me everywhere.

    I will definitely post Treely pics as soon as I get some. They are going to work with her on being independent of the herd and standing still for mounting and lots and lots of trail riding, so she'll be at a point where I can take over this summer and really get her going. The trainer drives every horse that comes into training, so that was an added bonus!
