In Cheryl Morin's own words:
8by10 inch Watercolor
by artist LindaLMartin
The other night she was standing off rather by herself, and the others were up at the hay station. I took her out a flake of hay. As I walked up (didn't need to say a word, she knew it was me -- actually couldn't/wouldn't be anyone else ....) and before she confirmed I had snacks, she nickered 'hellos'. I handed over the hay and knelt on the ground beside her feet,. close enough to feel her breath as she ate. I had the most wonderful time just hanging out with my Sweet Girl while she had some dinner. Clear sky. Snow on the ground. Listening to her eat. And as she ate, the smell of grass and summer filled the air and for that short time, there was no one other than Mama and me. She is a good girl."
