Emma came to be a little kid. She was easy to train and attached herself to me quickly.
Emma accompanied me to the pet store for harnesses each time she needed a new one. All the workers knew her. "Emma's here!" I heard over the intercom when she and I walked in.
When I went to one of the barns we stored hay in, she would walk around the bleachers in the large fair building. I would sneek out the door to see how long it took her to notice I left the building. Very soon after leaving, I heard her little hoofs on the wooden boards making time and shooting out the door to see where I had disappeared to. Very sweet. Happy to find me.
She moved with all of us to our 30 acre farm in North Central Ohio. Once a tax man came to assess the property for taxes. Emma met him and welcomed him with a head butting until he got into his car and left.
As he entered a local store, he mentioned the incident with Emma. "Oh, that's the Sizemore farm and that's Emma!" they told him.
Emma was famous in those parts of the world.
