Yesterday Bill and I went into Trollwood for the first time this summer. I was thrilled. I snapped many photos only to discover that I had no memory card in the camera! All photos lost!! So today when I left for the barn, I made sure I was packing the proper gear.
Oh dear. I did not feel good about this turn of events. Lilly and I ran off the trail and into the woods calling for Getty. What a good and willing brumby to come along so supportively!! I was calling to Getty so loudly that the coyote looked at me for several seconds. It did not look worried. Getty paused and as soon as she made one step back toward me and Lilly, I praised her. But then, she was off again! She vanished into the woods! I did not know what to do. I considered calling Bill but I had no phone and besides, what could he have done?
Well. One heart attack later, Getty came back. Perhaps the coyote had moved off. Perhaps its body language told her to go away.
