Zena

How could I forget to mention this one this is so exciting. We have a new family member. It has taken a little while but she’s finally here. Meet Zena…

It’s not my best picture of her this was when we first met, I had a little ride on her & she was just beautiful a little high-strung but she hadn’t been ridden for about a year. Zena has been around cattle & out & about on the roads cars, truck don’t seem to bother her.  My friends father used to ride her as well as the grandchildren.

Before I brought her home we took her to cutting practice a couple of times & she was a little defiant (a typical mare)but did what she was asked to do, she is Australian Stock Horse about 14 hands,  perfect height for me(I don’t bounce like I used to),she’s 9yr old.

We were also able to take her to a stock horse clinic held in our little town, there is another one in a couple of months we will hopefully get to so much fun & the couple that run the clinics are just beautiful people.

Zenas home she looks like she’s been here forever. Zena didn’t take much notice of the other horses although it was quite funny, you can see Marlo & squirt in the back ground see how Marlo is looking at squirt, well that’s because every time Marlo went to whinny something to Zena Squirt in a fit of jealous rage attacked him, poor Marlo couldn’t breath in Zenas direction without getting attacked from squirt. Talk about a female putting a male in his place was hilarious.

We had to wait a little to bring Zena home as I had to get her paddock organised, here’s a little tip. I purchased this solar battery electric fence battery off the internet for about $100 Aussie dollars, I wasn’t sure about it at first but I figured I couldn’t make a solar panel that cheap & I can recharge the battery electrically if I need to, it came with a plug-in charger as well, I’ve had it for over a year now & it works beautifully. You can see in the background of the photo of Zena in her paddock, Squirt & Marlos paddock is about an acre, this little battery has given Marlo a couple of good zappings, he like to test the fence every now & then, silly duffa. It has kept Zena safe & secure, I am going to invest in another one eventually to borrow a neighbours bit of land to feed the horses on for a while.

So glad I remembered to share this event I will have more photos up of Zena as we get to know each other a bit more. Can’t wait.

  1. So exciting!!! She looks very sweet. I’m so happy for you. I miss my horses tremendously. There will definitely be a horse at some point in the future. I need to find a little better balance in my life first.
