It’s no secret that Sugar and I still don’t see eye to eye on most things. While I trust her completely, and would put anyone on her back, we just have our own personality differences – and that’s OK.
This morning I decided before I let the horses out of their stalls for the day to slosh around the soggy pasture, they needed some TLC (especially since I had to go back to work again yesterday) and a good dose of Thrushbuster as Sugar was stomping her back feet last night, reminding me too much of Jake.
After finishing up getting Kobi ready to start his day, it was Sugar’s turn. Not wanting to just jump down and start picking her feet, I took the soft, natural hair brush for her sensitive skin, and groomed her.
Sugar sweats excessively in this weather and it builds up right behind her front legs – where they meet her chest/belly. I started brushing her and a shiver ran down her spine. At first I thought I was making her uncomfortable until I looked at her face; her lips were quivering in pure pleasure.
We may have finally made a connection today!
