So besides individual paddocks, we also have 8 acres in the back for turn-out for the horses. Yesterday I finally mustered up the courage to turn the boys out there with 5 other horses. Bubba I never have to worry about. That sucker can dominate horses twice his size. I was just very worried about clumsy, baby Henny getting hurt again. But they gotta grow up some time
I turned Bubba out first to do some damage control. He took off down the alley way and got all the horses riled up. They ran around with him, some squealing and pawing, but it was pretty non-eventful.
Strutting his stuff(The black Paint is the alpha)
This is where they squealed and pawed at each other. Boring!
Can you spot the pony?
After they all settled down, I went and grabbed Henny and led him out. Prancer(Palomino) and Falkin(bay) were the first to meet him. Prancer and Falkin are in adjacent paddocks so they're all already pretty well acquainted with each other. When I let him go, Bubba was already at the other end of the pasture so Henny was on his own.
Look at my midget :)
This is where Henny thought meeting two of the horses was good enough and began grazing, unaware of Takoma creeping up behind him. Henny spotted him, stood stock still and chomped his little heart out while Takoma sniffed him.
All the horses jumped and scattered when...
