I wrote this for the Indian Hills Ranch newsletter.
Welcome Pepper Lee
She’s here! Pepper Lee joins Yndi the driving pony on the back lane. She came all the way from Kentucky to get here. She is a Gotland pony, just like Yndi, and she likes people and being scratched on her neck.
She and Yndi got things sorted out right away, with only a hairy eyeball and a wrinkled nostril. Now they can be seen together, standing around the water cooler, passing the time.
It’s taking me a little longer to sort things out with her. We didn’t seem to be speaking the same language. I tried watching the show Justified, about the US Marshall in Kentucky, but then I found out that it’s shot in southern California by a bunch of posers with fake Kentucky accents. No wonder it didn't help.
Amber Lydic is helping us develop our communication.
Pepper is already trained to drive, and will, one day, go in a pair with Yndi, but I want to develop our relationship before I get her hooked up. The relationship with a horse is the best part.
Is she cute or what?
