Older daughter and her hubby were going to take Rain, but decided they couldn't afford a horse right now. Then, they were going to finish a pen that was already on their place to put Dancer in for a few weeks, but they haven't done it yet, so we are pretty much stuck at the moment. Hay is very dear here and no one wants to board either one of them - even with the hay thrown in - for a reasonable fee. (We have plenty of hay, even with our new rescues, so we are lucky there.)
I think hubby will be going to older daughter's house in the next couple of weeks to help finish out the pen and then we can move Dancer...weather permitting. It's just that there is no shelter in that pen other than a tree just outside the fence, so it will take a while to get it ready for her.
I just hope that Rain will be content to stay in the lot with Auntie Mistie and her new Auntie Nutmeg when Dancer is hauled off. That could turn out to be disasterous. The only other time I've been involved in weaning a colt, he tore himself to pieces running through fences to get back to his mother. Sadly, she solved the problem permanently by dying on us. It has taken over a year to get the colt's knee to look normal he cut it open to the bone...
Plain Old Dee, horses Dancer and Rain I believe in dragons, unicorns, good men and other mythical creatures!
