Both girls have amazing personalities; they let you hold them, pet them, move them about. They will be the first two girls I take for a morning walk tomorrow to the shaded pond side where I've let the crab grass grow so they will have a munching treat at the end of their short trek. If you are a hobbyist, rather than a business woman, then you choose your herd differently. I have always chosen temperament, and if the pet happens to be beautiful, the beauty is a bonus. Without temperament, you have just another pretty face.
Carol (Reigh) was wonderful, as usual, with integrating the girls into their new life. The newbies already had been weighed and had their 3 shots before they arrived, so Carol had only to bathe them. We put them by themselves in one stall, and let our other 4 meet-and-greet from the other side of a stall door. Of course, the girls were delighted to see Carol again, totally excited, and each of them greeted her. It is so hard not to have a favorite, because each girl has something very special about her. But Tess is always the one to nuzzle up, and she definitely has that 1st place in my heart.
