Martha is also getting used to the herd, but this is taking time. As big as Martha is, she is the most timid. She would stand off in a corner and not get anything to eat if we kept her with group of horses. She is usually in a pasture next to the group. There is much socializing over the fence.
People enjoy seeing Martha. Men especially like to size her up and talk of their experiences with work horses. Little children like to walk up and pet her. Their eyes are big as they reach up to touch her. All the time Martha is standing still with her head low to the ground. In the picture above, Kimmie, our newest mission member, experiences taking Martha on a trail ride.
We continue being consistent with her training and handling. Camp starts next week. It should be interesting to see and hear the comments from the wranglers working at the barn and the campers that come for a horse experience.
