I went to Kemp, Tx this morning, just south of Dallas. I bought a horse out of a kill pen and went and picked her up.

I’ve named her Reina, it means Queen in Spanish. She is a 12 year old Missouri Fox Trotter, Palomino in color. Looks like her mane and tail is white. Dirty and a matted mess, that will need some de-tangling. She is skinny. Bony skinny. But she is not wasted down, just needs some groceries. I know how to take care of that.

There was a video of her being ridden bareback, with a halter and lead rope. She was very responsive and had a good stop, about all you can hope for in a kill pen video. She has shoes on, hooves aren’t great, but not bad. A hoof supplement and in a few months, her hooves will be healthy. I’ll get her a good barefoot trim, in a few weeks.

Reina is home.

Sheba was suspicious of this intrusion and laid at the gate, growing softly. Senrty, true to his name, watched.

I walked her down the driveway and let her graze.

Sheba checked Reina out, then laid down. Reina was accepted. Sentry accepted her too.

Reina is in the pen that was prepared for Cooper the ram. There is a shelter, a water tub full of fresh water and a round bale of Bermuda hay.

In the comments about her in the Facebook post, was that she doesn’t like to be caught. I left her in the pen for awhile, then went to feed her. I called her name over and over. Head up, ears pricked, she was interested until I got close, then she walked away. So did I. I turned and offered her a handful of feed, she let me get close and she ate it. I got the coffee can with feed and rattled it. Oh yes! She was interested! I hand fed her a little, petted her and she followed me to her stall. I fed her, talked to her and petted her. Enough for day 1.
