Ohohoho more Sonja because she's great and now i can start on my original plotline

~~~

Unbeknownst to them, Sonja was already a proven showjumper. Of course there were photos of her jumping but it was impossible to tell how high they were from the pictures and it was never recorded. It had been a unanimous decision to retrain her as if she had never seen humans before, but after the sight of a lunge whip left her a terrified squealing mess and Keke with a dislocated shoulder did they begin to research her past. 


A call to the stables that she had been purchased from revealed very little. When the mare was brought there there was only one woman running it and she had passed away before the stables had been taken over. From what the current owners could piece together, she had been either bought or traded from a backyard operation up north as a 3 year old and completely trained by the woman but never extensively showed. A few ribbons addressed to her had been found in the house and tack room but there was no evidence of what class or even what show they'd been from but based on the pictures they'd assumed jumping. 

Unfortunately there was no record of her owners before that and the trail had run cold until someone remembered the sales ad in the photo album delivered with the horses. Luckily the number was still in service but the person that answered vehemently denied knowing of any previously sold horses, especially not abused ones. After a winding stream of questions it was revealed that a family had bought a mare matching her description from a livestock closeout sale in Virginia in 2004.

She had been intended as a childrens 4-H companion and was purchased under the assumption that she was a dead broke 14 year old Quarter Horse. By the time it was discovered that she was only 2 and relatively unhandled it was too late and the family was forced to take her. They had very little horse experience beyond a few trail rides but had fenced in their yard and decided to keep the mare anyway. 

Their lack of experience resulted in a few brief stints to find a "natural horsemanship" trainer to do the work for them. Coupled with the lack of respect natural horsemanship employs and the frustration of her owners, she had been whipped and kicked into adolescence. Their method worked for a while and the mare was an "easygoing pony" for several months until she began biting and kicking anyone that tried to touch her. 

The trainer was called back to try and correct this problem but after the yearling broke his hip it was decided that she would be put up for sale. Obviously a horse with her track record never sold so another ad was posted along with a picture of her pedigree and the simple text that anyone willing to make the drive up there could have her.

Dannika Hazel was the first and only person to respond to the ad and took the horse home with her. At their request Morning Dew Equestrian, as the womans stables was now called, had sent everything they had pertaining to the horses Vechnyy had taken. Among those things was a detailed training journal for each horse, Sonja's spanning more than 2 years and chronicling the thousands of hours it had taken to teach the horse how to cope with abuse.

According to the journal she had started out at 3ft but was easily able to jump 5ft and had competed in those divisions before, but her placing wasn't recorded. The journal left off with her jumping 5'6" but since none of the pages were dated, it was impossible to tell how long ago it had been. Moole had been born when Sonja was 5 and Vechnyy had bought them when he was 3, meaning the mare had been out of work for anywhere from 5 to 8 years and handled only twice in that time, both very briefly.

While the mare was perfectly healthy and becoming used to humans again, she was still impossibly independent. She pulled you towards whatever she wanted, refused to be caught, and crowded anyone handling her. Sonja bucked and balked her way through countless hours of trot poles and fought viciously against any attempt to ride her until she was declared untrainable and dismissed.

Jumping had turned out to be her only talent but if she couldn't be ridden she had no purpose. It took several weeks of brooding before it was determined that she would try her hand at free jumping before being retired to breeding. She had been trained it with her previous owner and after a few rehearsals she was quickly signed up for a show to prove her worth.

I've drawn this girl once before but its time for her to get a proper story going

~~~

In addition to the land the buildings resided on, Vechnyy owned 300 acres of fenced in bush and mountain land surrounding the stables. It was there that the Obertaurers were released in the winter and it was here that Moole's dam, Sonja, had been kept since they made the move to Colorado. Everyone at the stables had gotten so busy the chestnut mare had very literally been forgotten until Keenan had seen a picture of her and wondered aloud what horse that was, resulting in a stable-wide "oh shit" moment and a massive scramble to make sure the mare was still alive. 

Luckily she was found several days later, high up on a ridge in the mountains, fat and content to have been left alone until now. Or at least they thought it was her. A quick check with the nearby BLM had revealed that all the grey horses in the wild herds had been recently accounted for and none had been reported missing, so the horse in their pasture had to belong to the stables. Admittedly no one had paid much attention to her but everyone was positive she had been either silver bay or liver chestnut the last time she'd been seen and the photo album confirmed it.

There was yet another scramble for her papers to be found and it was revealed that she was a Cruising foal out of a Crosstown Dancer mare, meaning she had most likely inherited the grey gene from her sire. She had been born in 2002, also meaning that the mare was still young enough to have a successful jumping career and that it was realistic she would've gone grey by now. 

A short-lived attempt to recapture her was shot down the second she saw them, the mare bolting into a thicket of trees and promptly vanishing. A plan was derived and due to his deep respect for the mare that bore his favorite and most successful horse, Keenan volunteered to catch her himself and set out with Summer to the place the sport horse was last seen. 

Not realizing how feral the mare had become, it took the man several days to settle down within 100 yards of her without the mare bolting. Thanks to the warm weather and Summers patience, he'd managed to drag several bales of hay out and scattered them around his camp in an attempt to attract Sonja and keep Summer closer. Unfortunately he'd also underestimated how long he would be out there and ended up sleeping on the ground most nights, the saddle pad tucked up as a pillow. Predators weren't really something Keenan had to worry about seeing as they were fairly close to the stables and the horses would warn him if anything dangerous got close but that didnt keep him from lying awake at night, watching the two horses move through the trees. 

Sonja let the cremello mare approach her almost instantly, remembering her from several years ago and the two settled down grazing. The hay surrounding Keenans camp area meant Summer drew the grey mare closer and closer to the man as the feral mare became curious and after a few days he was able to hand feed her. Unfortunately whenever he moved to touch her she would bolt away once more, leaving the man to sit back down and wait.

After 5 days of very little progress the man gave up, choosing instead to tack up Summer and go back to the stables to sleep in an actual bed for a few days and maybe try again later. As the two picked their way down the mountainside, Sonja trailed behind, curiously drawing closer as they neared the gate. 

Positioning the mare so he could open the gate, Keenan noticed the grey horse standing a few yards away, eyeing them warily. Extending his hand, he let out the universal Vechnyy "come here" whistle and both mares pricked up, Sonja stepping slightly closer at the idea of food. As the mare sniffed at the saddle bag, the man quietly looped the long rope around her face, forming a makeshift halter and she reared up in alarm. 

Shuffling backwards Sonja swung around as Summer paralleled her movements, jumping forward as she reached the end of the rope. Luckily Summer was typically used to pony young horses and stood calmly as the older mare jumped around like an idiot,  hopping back and forth each time the rope grew taunt. 

Keenan wasn't sure if she wore herself out or remembered what halters were for, but after what seemed like several minutes Sonja stopped her hissyfit and stepped forward hesitantly as Keke tugged on the leadrope. She followed Summer closely up the driveway, spooking and slamming into the mares side each time a bird so much as chirped but they eventually made it to the stables in one piece, everyone gathering around to see her.

No one really thought Sonja would end up being caught so a space hadn't been prepared and after a quick deliberation it was decided that she would be put in a broodmare stall, Summer on one side and her only foal on the other, Moole obviously overjoyed to see his dam again. The broodmare stalls also had a small paddock attached so the horses could still get exercise and Sonja charged back and forth or nearly an hour, circling around the massive stall to jump through the door and buck in the paddock, her colt skittering around the enclosure every time the mares hooves hit the sand.

:facepalm: I'm such a fool sometimes. 

It's against the nordanner rules to put restrictions on old slots. For some reason I didn't click that was a rule I was breaking. I apologise!

Hello! I didn't want you to get a shock when you look at your reserved slot and see a red bullet

It's just there so I know when you're using your reserved slot :) (Smile) Not that I need to know who the stallion is. I mean, no one likes bumping into floating foals Laughing

So just give me the heads up and I'll clear it for use ^^
