Bella and Roman
Bella is giving Roman "horse signs" that he needs to move-on. Ears back, teeth, snaking neck. Scares me, but macho Roman couldn't care less. I've even seen Bella flash the stink-eye at him if he dare to get close to her bucket. Speaking of teeth, she has a new incisor (right on schedule.)
I think Bella secretly likes Roman's soft fur but wants to make him think she's the boss.
I quietly slipped onto Bella's bare back yesterday. It was heavenly. We walked slowly around the arena and I quietly slipped back off. I hugged her neck and slowly got to the ground. Her only interest in this event was to turn around and sniff my leg, then she walked on gently. Our lessons are going forward so nicely.
