13. She's been fed strictly hay and I wonder what she'll think of our lush pasture.
And if she's at risk for founder if she goes overboard on the fresh stuff.

I plan on keeping her in the corral until Stella can get used to her -she's a diva and can be very pushy.

Thanks for the advice, gentling animals is the only way to win their trust.
