For those who remember Noelle and Malachi, you'll know why the video is entitled Here We Go Again. Last Friday, March 16, we hitched up the trailer, called Laura to sit with the house, horses, dogs, and cat, and drove to the BLM facility on the campus of The Piney Woods School south of Jackson, Mississippi, arriving way too close to midnight. The next morning we adopted our second mustang carrying a foal conceived in the wild.
March 3rd marked three years since Malachi was born (see the blog). And June 3rd will mark the third year since his sudden and shattering death. We felt as if our hearts had been ripped right our of our bodies. It was a terrible time. So how did we know the time was right to have another go? That God was saying, "Now!"
It took 19 days for Noelle to allow herself to eat from my hand, but our new girl did it on Day One :).
Well... okay. Night One. After arriving home around 6:00pm and unloading, and leaning on the rail and just grinning at her for over an hour, we finally went up and fed the dogs, cat, and ourselves. Then instead of catching up on work undone for two days Kathleen looked at me. I looked at her. And we both said, "You want to?" And off we went back to the paddock by the barn. To stand and grin for another hour. Finally I could stand it no longer and had to go into her paddock and plop down on the bales of straw placed there for that purpose. In a mere matter of minutes she was eating out of my hand! After nine-hours in the trailer, in a strange place, with strange people! An unhandled mustang only months out of the wild. I couldn't believe it. The apparent connection Kathleen captured on video at the BLM must be for real. I was giddy!
Of course at 10pm there is no sun, and no movie lights at the barn, so the ending bite you'll see on the video is actually from the next day. The BLM said she is "probably" due in May but the manager on the ground, Kathleen, and I, all believe that it will be well before May. She is already bagging up. Noelle gave birth 16 days after starting to "bag up".
Her name is Saffron. We'll probably wind up calling her Saffy. Or more likely Miss Saffy.
