August 23rd is the birthday that I have given Buena. I was recently informed by a relative that used to live in the area that she came from that it is pronounced boo-eh-na and not the proper Spanish pronunciation of BOO-AY-nah. Oh well. I don’t like to think back too much on where she came from. It is pretty irrelevant these days.
I did want to show those of you who don’t know our history some old pictures and video from the day I first set eyes on her and the day that she arrived home.
First catch and groundwork:
She’s come a long way from being a scared 3 year old filly destined for a Canadian slaughterhouse. Here she is today:
