Otumwa has a new Mom!!!
Photos by Karyn Shirley
Otumwa has been in Reno the past several months learning how to be part of the human world.
She is working with our awesome trainer Karyn Shirley and has been ridden several times. She has quite a sweet personality and is very curious. I am very happy to report that Karyn has found a dedicated new Mom for her. Barbara will continue Outumwa's training with Karyn as well as lessons for herself at the beautiful Ironwood stables where Otumwa will stay for at least another year.
Otumwa means, moving water or running water. It is also a name for an Indian tribe.
I am so tickled that she is getting the new mom and home she needs. Her self-esteem has risen immensely since leaving the herd and working full time with Karyn. I am very proud of her and very happy for her!
