Tempest in a Teacup
No walk today, it was raining and cold. Instead we met for breakfast. Olivia, Jewel's filly is like nothing we have ever had on the farm. She is the youngest foal on the property and yet she is such a Prima donna. The weanling paddock is crowded, until 2 of the foals, Onyx and Oksana are picked up in March, the foals need to get along and all do except...you guessed it, Olivia. When the grain is brought out each morning she is first and demands her own feeder. The others are content to share but not her, she will threaten any that dare step into her space fiercely with her ears back. Today the others were ignoring her, eating out of her feeder, she backed into them and let fly with kick that hit nothing. She was so mad she ran into the shelter and kicked the wall. The picture below is from a few months ago but just seems to show her arrogant attitude.
