You can't get any sweeter than Nestle. But she isn't named because of that; she is named to her chocolate color and the similar sound of her registered name, "Nasty". Mark Her Nasty. Ironic. Her records show she had nine babies in nine years. Gestation is 12 months. So her babies were put on a nurse mare to raise, and she was taken to breed each year. When we loaded her to bring her to the ranch, she broke out in a serious sweat, shook violently, and was a wreck. She thought she was going to be bred again. Nestle's nervous beginning caused her to crib on fences and stall doors, have ulcers, and gas colic episodes. She has to be on a special colic formula and watched closely each feeding time. But we watch also as she comes up to anyone out in pasture and moves into positions for a back scratch. She would rather be with people than her herd. Relationship is her gifting. I've adopted her as my personal horse and the love she gives back is deep. Now, she's not perfect; can be ornery and stuck in her ways, but I don't even see that anymore. The verse is true.
"Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins." 1 Pet 4:8
