The Pick Up & First Two Days
I sat in my corral, looking at all the other horses around me. I notice a Tall man and Young lady come over to my pen, I struck back in the corner nervously.
“These here are the 3-5 year old Geldings”
The man pointed out all the horses then pointed at me, I saw a flicker in the girls eyes.

After some time I fell asleep, When I woke I found new water more hay and the feed tray filled again. I realized after eating something that my halter was off. I Tossed my head gladly and trotted outside, I stopped in fear as I saw something inside my Pen...
