The lovely Gray Mare has been mostly that, lovely. Maybe not very trained, and sometimes very directionally challenged, but mostly, lovely. But she has not been a very good girl when it comes to being a neigh-bor. Originally she lived next door to Mickey, the tenderfoot-OTTB baby, whom she enjoyed terrorizing. Mickey would try to drink out of his water bucket, then reel back in horror as he noticed a grey muzzle approaching him, with savage teeth bared!
Since Mickey being dehydrated was not a viable option, a horse home swap was in order.

|Until Lonely Guy needed stall rest...|
