Michonne NC and In Ezekiel's Image IK Finally the mare is led away by another human, this one with the leather harness and something in his pocket the mare seems eager to get to. Ezekiel doesn't pay it any mind. They're bringing another foal into the paddock. It's Cressida. Ezekiel hates Cressida.
In Ezekiel's Image and Cressida IK Cressida couldn't care less if Ezekiel hates her. The humans are paying attention and if they're paying attention that usually means snacks are about. Cressida could sniff out something edible if it was hiding in a haystack. She did that once, much to her Mama's distress, but the humans had been laughing instead of being disappointed so Cressida didn't care. Today they have her standing in fields all day. Mama's not around, instead they have another mare who Cressida's never seen before and she seems pretty jumpy. Cressida runs when they tell her to run because when she doesn't, when she doesn't like the smell of the new mare and shies away, they give her snacks! When they're done with the light box, Cressida can't wait to roll around and get extra dirty. Ezekiel can stand around and moan about the mud if he wants. Even if it means a shower and Mama's sighs, rolling in the mud is awesome. When she's been extra crazy in the mud, Ezekiel doesn't bother her much when they're both put in the paddock with their mamas, and that's fine with her!
