A nasty front forecasted for the South of New Zealand, had cut Bruce's holiday a little short; he didn't want to chance not being able to fly out at all. Though the early return meant that he could be at the quarantine yard when Liberty was ready to be released, and he could spend some extra time with his sister, who had accompanied the mare over on the flight as her personal groom.
Now that he had seen his sister off at the airport, he travelled the rest of the journey alone with the bay mare in the trailer. Liberty had done a little kicking in the steel trap that she was in, but he'd made sure to pull over, when it was safe to do so, and give the mare a walk around until she had settled and then load her up and continue.
Arriving on campus, he was pleased that it was pretty quiet, and he could unload the Kaimanawa in peace, and let her have a good look around before he led her toward the pastures. The mare didn't even know what a barn was, let alone a stall, so she would live out in the pastures while he continued getting her used to people and the idea of being ridden.
Letting her loose, he laughed as he walked back to lean on the gate while the mare threw her head into the air and then bolted off around the pasture, kicking her back legs into the air with a defiant squeal.
