    Henny and Bubba Together Again! (And my new tack shed!)

    So after Henny's accident in November, I moved him to the stables right down the street from me for his safety and ensuring a better recovery. We finally got Bubba moved down to be with him last night!! Our truck is in the shop currently so we didn't have the ability to haul him, so we walked him!

    Five miles and two and a half hours. I was on his left with him in a rope halter and my mom was on the right with a nylon halter. Why so cautious? Bubba is our rescue pony who spooks at his own shadow. We've owned him for 10 years and he has yet to completely trust us. But, gosh I am so proud of him! We crossed 4 busy roads and he didn't spook once! Such a great little pony. <3

    When we got Bubba there, he was posturing at all the other horses already. Mister Stud Muffin! We let him in Henny's paddock and Henny immediately went to chomping like he always does. Bubba looked at him and treated him as if they had never been apart. They are best friends already. I have already noticed that Henny and Bubba both are in better moods. Henny has a buddy to run around with and look up to, and Bubba can relax and not have to worry about two mares trying to constantly challenge him. I am just bursting with joy and so glad we finally got them together again.


    Waiting at the gate. "You've come to feed us, yes?"


    Henny managed to do this last night. I swear that boy is a pro at cutting himself up. He's just so dang clumsy


    Just so you can kinda sorta see the height difference. Henny is about 13 hands and Bubba is about 11 hands. They're the perfect match for now. I'm the only one at the barn that owns "midgets"


    Dem dapples! Those mares ate his hair


    Not so great photo taken from Henny's stall door looking over into Bubba's stall! There was actually a board there and the second we took it down Henny got all excited to see his buddy.


    Dirty whiskers


    And the chunks munching on hay out in the pasture. :) While I was cleaning out their paddock, a giant thunder storm came in. I brought them in to eat and about an hour later it cleared up so we let them back out. Yay rain!

    And my new tack shed! It's 6x6x3 and perfectly fits everything. I still need to install shelves but we were able to get it built and painted yesterday and today even between all of the other hectic stuff we've been doing.


    Decently organized. Desperately need shelves for all my grooming supplies(which is contained in those boxes and green bucket. I might have too much, or not enough )


    And close up. Kinda sorta tried to put Henny's halters on the left and Bubba's on the right. The perfect thing about it is Henny can take Bubba's hand me downs, then vice versa as Henny gets older. It's perfect!

    Thanks for looking! Just wanted to share what I've been doing all weekend and am so excited about.

    Aw dang, Karen! I'll post some on FB for you to see. :)

    I see Stryder is just as injury prone as Henny bahaha. I have no idea how he does it. He came in a few weeks ago with cuts on both of his hocks. A couple nights ago he got a little cut on his front leg. And now this cut. I think he may be itching himself on the fence. He is always SO itchy and trying to find anything to itch himself on. Luckily they've all been just scratching the hair off, so let's hope it stays that way. I don't mind the superficial wounds.

    Yay, silly computers! I painted the outside a bright firetruck red and I'm going to design it with another color paint. Although I'm not sure what I should decorate it with. Hmmm...

    Great weekend for you!

    Just a note about Spooky Pony: had one myself and only did I realise, when someone else rode him, that I was holding him back. I didn't challenge him enough, raise the bar high enough for him to build his confidence in me and in himself.

    That is too true, hemms. Once he gets settled in, I am so taking him into the round pen. I've had enough experience starting Henny on his groundwork, I just need to approach it differently with him. Last time I tried to lunge him, he freaked and took off and ran around the pasture like a crazy boy for 10 minutes before I could get him calmed down. I didn't even have a whip with me! Even yesterday, someone was lunging their horse in the round pen which is about 100-150 feet away from their paddock. Each time the whip cracked he would spook and run around the paddock. He used to be so terrified of a whip he'd run at the sight of it. I got him to the point where I could rub him down with it. I haven't worked with him since, though, as I've been busy with Henny and his shenanigans.
