When the shoeing was completed, the foot had to be wrapped in a food wrap type of material to allow the glue to set. After the glue had set up, we were able to handwalk her in the arena. This allowed her and her foal to go out into the arena. We took advantage of this to allow Ginger, her foal and Ian and Reggie to get to know one another. Reggie is the orphan that is two months old. The hope is that he and Ian will get to know one another, play and become horses together and maybe, Ginger will take him on as her own. The photo at the top of this post gives us hope! I've said this before, Ginger is very good minded, without any meanness in her bones. She is kind and if anything, she has become even better minded throughout this ordeal. There are quite a few months to go to say we are completely out of the woods but today was very heartwarming.
After I brought in Reggie to his stall, Natalie let Ginger roll, which she loves to do but hasn't been able to do for 30 days.
This was just icing on the cake!
