A minute or two of squealing and a few half hearted kicks on Emma's part and it was all settled that Emma would lead and Curious would follow. Coming from a place with over 100 horses Curious is used to herd dynamics and was so thrilled to no longer be alone.
Emma (the darker paint) had been in a two horse home, until the owner had to rehome her. She went to a riding stable as a lesson horse, and although she is a good horse for that purpose, she just didn't seem happy in that busy environment.
Emma is technically a pony - measuring at 14.1 hands but she seems to be as big as 14.2 Curious so I will be referring to them both as horses. (For those that don't know a pony is an equine under 14.2 hands, while a horse is anything 14.2 hands and above.)
