very emotional

Well, moved the horses to their new home yesterday.  Put them in the pasture, they went to eat the grass, and never looked back.  I felt like they would forget me.

Today after work, I stopped on my way home.  It was 5:15 when I got there, gave myself about a half hour to stay. Took my grooming tote, the flyspray and the stick.  Walked the "MILE" (not really) to the shed, realized I didn't have the halters. DUH.  Well, the round pen was kinda far from them anyway...

Almost there, they both looked up.  I waved.  Then they went back to eating.  But as I got closer, they looked again, and something must have been familiar.  It was actually Missy who whinnied - VERY LOUDLY!  She never has done THAT.  I said "HI GIRLS!" and then Cricket whinnied!!  Then she whinnied again!  That was nice :)

So I went into the pasture, and Cricket came to me first.  I gave her a treat.  Then Missy.  I started to spray Missy; she did not go away!!  Then I got Cricket.  SHE did not go away!  I pulled out the Scarlex and then Cricket tried to go away.  Had to bribe her with another treat.  But I got a good dose on her boo-boo, which is looking better.  She stayed still for it, too.

Then Missy came over and wanted me to pet her face.  <3  Then I had Cricket do some tricks, so I could give her another treat.  Then I gave Missy the last one.  Missy was just all in my zone, wanting me to stroke her and talk to her.   SHE NEVER DOES THAT.  I started crying!

I wonder if they thought I had abandoned them there?  And they were so glad to see me :)  Now they know I will be back.  They watched me leave.

It was so weird not to feed them.  Oh, and my fish was still happily digging in all the algae!  HE even looked happy!  But I was feeling very emotional, like a reverse homesickness.  But they haven't forgotten me.

So tomorrow I will remember the halters and maybe take Cricket down to the roundpen.
