Before I get to the November challenge I want to tell you about Kirk meeting Willow this morning. He met her in the dark after work last night, but this morning I went out to take pictures of him and her since she's supposed to be his riding horse when he does ride. Willow met us at the gate and was eager to see us.

When we let Corky in, it was an uneventful meeting.
The winds have been gusting up to 35 miles an hour all day here, so I thought today would be a good day to work on the wind challenge! I went and got Corky and took him to be brushed out. All I could hear was Willow whinnying. Good grief! She's been with him for 6 hours and you'd think it had been 6 years! Corky never answered her and quite frankly it surprised me because Willow never said anything when we loaded her alone in the trailer and she rode all the way home that way. So for her to be separated from him and worried about it surprised me. As I groomed Corky I realized his winter coat is coming in and I can see his waves.

I think it's going to be fun to figure out exactly what Willow knows and do this month's challenges with both horses! It will continue to build on mine and Corky's relationship and help Willow to get to know us!
