    Let the Boys into the Back Pasture!

    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!

    Prancy Pony

    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...

    Bubba came crashing over to protect his little brother. <3 Of course Henny is a dork and chomped at him, too LOL

    Henny's really not that butt high :P

    Here you can see Henny chomping his heart out to Bubba. I guess he got confused and decided to chomp at ALL of the horses. I don't blame the little guy.

    This picture is good indicator of just how much taller Henny is than Bubba. Henny is good hand taller than Bubba so it's pretty hilarious when Henny cowers behind him.

    Four of the boys travelling in a little band. :)

    Then the boys went off to the other end of the pasture and found some good grazing.

    Henny keeping on eye on the other horses

    They were only out in the back pasture for about 30-40 minutes, but it was long enough to get them a little acquainted with the other horses and get a feel for the pasture. I think with a few more supervised visits I'll feel a lot more safe about turning Henny out with them. I'm just so scared of him getting hurt again. If he gets kicked in the head again, that's it for him. ): BUT I know I need to stop being a paranoid horse mommy and let my little boy grow up some time. Seeing just how protective Bubba is of him definitely puts me at ease, though. They are seriously best buddies. :)

    Thanks for looking!

    I just realized in this picture you can see Bubba coming to the rescue on the left in the background. Such a good big brother!

    Heehee, I love Bubba! What a little devil. ;)

    Nice looking herd you got there. Looks like they are all enjoying that fresh, green grass!

    Bubba is definitely a little spitfire He has no qualms with challenging horses 2-3 times his size, obviously. Heck, where he was before, he was leader over a 16+ hand mare and her 2 year old filly LOL

    They definitely enjoy being turned out there. Most of the horses there get stalled at even the hint of a sprinkle, whereas my boys are outside 24/7 unless there's a bad thunderstorm. Prancer is a little snot though and has NO manners.
