So I got home today and as I drove past our top paddock I saw a lovely sight - my gelding and mini grazing peacefully next to each other. Nice, except that I have been keeping my mini in a taped off area in that paddock with hardly any grass! She was out in the long grass and I have no idea how long she had been in there. Straight away I moved her to the yard and checked for any injuries as he has been known to kick at her which is why I keep her separate and on no grass because she is quite fat! She has been charging around happily since then with no apparent lameness, should I be thinking that if anything was going to happen it would have happened by now? I'm sure she got to work pretty quickly and devoured A LOT of grass. I went down and checked the energizer - the batteries had gone flat
Now I know why I should have spent an extra $150 and brought another solar powered one!
