Most of us, I believe, admire strength. It's something we tend to respect in others, desire for ourselves, and wish for our children. Sometimes, though, I wonder if we confuse strength with other words - like aggression and even violence. Real strength is neither male nor female; but is, quite simply, one of the finest characteristics that any human being can possess.

A little more Leda time. The plan was a half hour of grooming, a half hour of round pen and a half hour of grazing, but it was more like 45 minutes of grooming and 15 minutes of round pen before the grazing. Probably a better "getting-to-know-you" balance - and she was really good in the round pen. She seemed quiet and content today - lots of lip-smacking and sighing. Oh and hey, this weekend is the anniversary of my first trip out here. :)
