Cheyenne, who is now 8 has been one of the loudest supporters of the Nebraska 200 and 3 strikes horses that survived. She made her own shirts and donated the money to buy them hay last spring. She has followed the case with a close eye, she has written letter's about them and the man who went to prison for starving them she never gave up even after the media blitz did. But, this afternoon was a wonderful moment.
Nearly a year later since the case broke, we were feeding horses, Chey reaches out to Canon Girl and here is a small selection of the series of their moment.
I will never forget watching my daughter communicate with this horse who has seen it all, and probably just found her utopia in a little girl who has loved her for a long time. Please keep in mind while they are sweet all three vary on the wild scale and all are very spooky but getting better every touch. None knew the sound of a feed bucket, hay being tossed into a feeder like ours, just these general sounds we, as horse folks, take for granted that our horses know. Slow and steady wins here.
