It's a mystery....

This is Jennifer Rain.

She is 4 1/2 years old.
Her daddy is a registered QH.
Her mama is Gypsy our 1/2 Arab - 1/2 ?.

She has had 6 weeks of professional training
with the Parelli method, the summer of 08'.

Even with all this training ($) she is not quite where
I'd like her to be.
So, more money will be spent to get
her where I want her, but that wont
be till this coming spring.
I'm not sure if I'll take her back to the same trainer,
whom I really, really like or go with someone else.
Decisions, decisions...

Anyhow, this is her a few weeks ago.
You can't really tell in this pic,
but her tail is nice and long.

And today when we went out to pet/brush the horses
I saw that her tail looks like it's been hacked off
on the bottom!

Not sure what has happened to her,
but could not find any hair anywhere!
(that sounds funny)

My thought was she was too close to the pig pen
and one of them had a nibble.
My hubby doesn't think that is an option.
He thinks she got it caught on something and
tore it off.
Chyann thinks someone came to our house and cut it.
Who, I ask and she say's the same person who took
our halter and brought it back.
Chyann forgot to take a $40 halter off Gypsy
and the next day it was gone.
This was back in August
and she found it on Monday out
in the pasture.
It was right out in the open,
where we'd see it if it were there before then.

That's my mystery.
Lost then found halter
Jenny's tail cut.

That is so strange, especially the horse's tail. It does look like it was cut. Are you sure one of the kids isn't sleep walkig at night and doing strange things in the middle of the night? Hey, this ties right in with Halloween Kellie!!!!!!

Thanks for sharing that spooky story.

That looks way too even to be anything but a cut. How unnerving - and just before Halloween, too!
A similar thing happened to us years back with one of our cats. One day we noticed that one of them had whiskers that had been cut to 1" on just one side. It still bothers me that I don't know how that happened...

Maybe you have some brownies who are playing little tricks on you?

Aunt Krissy said...

That is an odd cut. Maybe somebody doesn't want to confess that they were doing something with the horse?
I would rather think that then think that a person would mess with you like that.

I'm guessing Chyann has a secret desire to be a hairdresser? Or Caden? And the answer that it was the same one who took and returned the halter makes me think the young lady is even more suspicious....hmmmmmm
