With the girls tucked safely in their stalls, introductions were made all around before walking Sara around the perimeter of The Girls' pasture. Photos below from Left to Right: Lady and Bella, Rina, and Taya. Um, apparently DD hasn't quite mastered the concept of holding the camera completely still when taking photographs...
Shadow and Cinnamon (Photo Right) were the first of the Moo Crew members to arrive at the fence as we headed up the hill with Sara in tow. WOO! - Who is that?? Haaay, she's kind of cute...
Of course Shadow (a.k.a. Señior Studmuffin) developed an instantaneous infatuation with the pretty new arrival.
While Cinnamon quickly lost interest, Shadow remained at the fence and quickly struck several of his very best studly poses (Photo Left). In an added attempt to impress the new love of his life - who was completely oblivious - he arched his neck over the fence and let out an itty bitty whinny. Oh the shame of it... Sara was distinctly unimpressed with his machismo...(of course it may just have been his sissyfied whinny that failed to wow her :o)
After turning Sara loose, we let the girls out of their stalls. Everyone raced around madly for a few minutes, then settled down to munch hay.
As The New Girl, Sara was not exactly warmly welcomed at the hay although Taya finally agreed to share a bit of hers.
Rina, Lady and Bella ultimately decided to pretend that Sara did not exist in their little world. Although Bella periodically cast surreptitious glances Sara's way, she made no offer of friendship which surprised me. Remember her being riveted at the fence?
Unfortunately, Shadow seemed to be experiencing a rather extreme case of denial. He continued his attempts to convince Sarabear of his overwhelming manly appeal by executing his very best trot in large circles by the fence; while periodically peeking at her to see if Sara had fallen head over hooves for him yet.
Sadly, she hadn't. Poor Shadow... :o\
Stay tuned for the next installment: Mean Girls
