She Beat Them Both
Kitt and Jolie share a two acre pasture with two off the track Thoroughbred race horses, Izzy and Promise. I was at the far end of the pasture giving apple slices to my girls, when Izzy decided that she was going to chase Jolie away and get her slices. Well Kitt was not going to have any of that, so she let Miss Izzy know, in no uncertain terms that was not happening. In response to a less than gentle reminder, Izzy took off at a dead run across the pasture. Promise, seeing Izzy run, thought, "oh boy, a race. That weenie girl is not going to win and so he took off after her. And folks, my five month old Quarterhorse foal, seeing all of this, took off. She came from behind and beat them both to the fence. Yep, my five month old foal beat two adult racehorses who were running flat out. Suffice it to say, Izzy and Promise were so mortified, they refused to show their faces.
