Hi - yes I have some lovely pics - but I don't know how to upload them to this site!!
Rowan had settled in nicely - then the new arrival came! A 16hh gelding cob - he is lovely, but huge! Against my advice and without me there, he was turned out with her after an hour of being there and she kicked him - fortunately he didn't kick back otherwise I may be telling a very different story. Nevertheless, we have sectioned them off now - so they can see each other, but couldn't touch - although we have put them in the stable tonight where they can see and smell each other - there has been a bit of squealing going on from Rowan - this whole process has brought her into season as well - she is is acting a bit like the local t*rt!! I don't want to risk them being together in the field yet - so we intend to keep them apart for at least another week - in the same set up - so they can see each other and touch noses, but can't "get" to each other. Does anyone have any views about turning them out together? It's been a long long time since I've had a horse - (keeping in mind that this is my daughters horse!) and I had forgotten how stressful it is - either that or I am worrying too much......has she got enough grass, has she got too much grass, are her hooves ok - is she too hot, is she too cold, should I keep the rug on during the day,is that too much hay, is it not enough hay -
I am sure in time we will get it right.........[/img]
