Where's Libby, you ask?
Libby is still her sweet, people-loving self, always ready to come and greet me when I pass by. I've not been so anxious to work her too much since I found out that two years old is probably too young for her to be ridden. For one thing, she's small; for another, people on the Homesteading Today equine forum urged me to give her more time, preferably waiting until she's three years old to ride her.
Once she's old enough to ride, if I find out she isn't going to get much use here, I'll sell her. I love her dearly, but horse upkeep being what it is, we can't afford to keep her around just to be a pretty pasture ornament. I intend to keep Blue here always, no matter what. But he's the only one who's that special.
I took the above picture just last week. Libby is so pretty; she always has those ears up, posing for the camera.
