Gizelle has a New Stable Mate
Do you remember our big, black horse from last year's camp post? That is Gizelle. She is a percheron. In the fall another horse was brought to the stable. She went to a new family, but then was returned (for good reasons). Her name is Brandy and she is a palomino.
Meeting BrandyWow! Look at the new horse! She's so pretty.
And a sweet disposition too.
Let's get her ready for riding.
Saddle and bridle...check.
I have the trail map.
And you have on good riding shoes. You can take her, Kaya.
There she goes.
Don't be gone too long!
This is a nice trail. So relaxing. You're a great horse, Brandy.
(singing to herself) Bum-ba-dee-da, bum-ba-dee-da, happy trails to you...
Brandy is a My Life As horse. She was rescued from Walmart due to her shabby condition. (Only a slight discount was given as they just send damages back to the manufacturer for credit.) Her box was a torn up.Her mane and tail were a mess.
There was a hole in her coat above her one eye and her eyes had scratches on them (this didn't photograph well).
I was able to sew the holes with thread the color of her mane so she has a spot above her one eye that matches her blaze. With patience, I go the tangles out of her mane and tale, trimmed the uneven strands, and braided her tail. She is much prettier and happier now.
