Awwww Alert. Cute Video of the Sainted Mare.

One of the bestest things about Sug is that she takes such good care of us.  She clearly views me as the Village Idiot, and sees her job as that of minimizing the damage I might inadvertently cause.  She very obviously sees my children as her foals, and you can tell she is determined to co-parent them to the best of her ability.  When we come into the barn, she will nicker at them in her low rumble until the come to her stall and say hello.  When I take her out of her stall, she will stop by the kids and lick them, almost as if she is inspecting them and checking to see if I've kept them in good shape.

I was noodling about watching some of my saved videos and came across this old one.  If you've been following AWIP for a while, you may have seen this before, so I offer my apologies for that.  I just felt like posting it again, as it shows so well why we call Sug the Sainted Mare.

Enjoy, have a great weekend, and again, thanks for taking time out of your day to hang out with us!


  1. Oh my goodness, this is beyond precious! LOL

  2. She certainly hands out the Sugar doesn't she? It is a true gift to love a horse, but to be loved by one is priceless!

  3. LOVE!!!! Best is "She's a dirty girl...."

  4. Sugar is such a suitable name for your mare. WOW. She is an absolute GEM!
