We are settling in more and more, and so are the horses. It is getting very hot here, so I head out to do pasture work around 7 am now. I have plenty of help while I am out there. Usually from Gypsy and Savannah. Actually, I think Gypsy is looking for treats or back scratching. Still, she keeps me company so I'm not complaining.
They didn't know quite what to think when they first came out and saw there was a lot more space and a lot more grass. They ran and ran across the pasture, kicking up their heels as they went. Then they saw there was grass-lots of grass-and got busy on it right away. Here they are hanging out near Peanut, our neighbor's horse.
I said from the get go, that I didn't want the horses in our "yard". Other people who shall remain nameless laughed at me. But really, I just didn't want them in the little bit of space we have claimed as our yard. That lasted all of two and a half weeks. They are in our yard. While I am not enjoying the packages they are depositing in my yard, it is really neat having them so close to us.
Of course, some modifications had to be made.
I think I will we will all miss them when they move to their pasture!
