Glad to hear she loves you guys & that she is really learning to trust you :)!
Amber is being very bi polar about how protective she is. One minute she is mostly fine, next thing I know she is backing up to me again xP. Dawn is still pretty good about being handled although this morning was a bit of an adventure. Around 9 or so out neighbors behind our property called saying she was on the outside of the round pen . So of course I had to go get her back in. Since my foal halters were no where near I had to corner her & put an arm behind her back end & one in front of her & lead her to the door. Thanks goodness foals dont weigh as much because I got stomped on, I dont know how many times, & at first she was bucking up a storm. Thankfully afterward, with the help of some grain to keep Amber semi preoccupied, I was able to run my hands all over her again so there were no hard feelings . I planned to surround the bottom of the their stall's panels with sheet metal to prevent something like this, but I havent done it yet because I need to find something to cut the metal with. According to how the straw was she must have laid down in a corner & got up on the other side of the panel. Oh well at least she is OK, & im not the worst at construction lol. Anyways mom & baby are back together, & Dawn was nursing like crazy. Yesterday was neat because after stretching a lot Amber laid down in the stall, & Dawn was chewing on her ear . I took the opportunity to give Dawn a nice long scratch, which she loved, & to rub Amber's forehead before she got up & chased me off again. Turns out my mucking wheelbarrow actually works well as a shield lol.
