Your pictures of "Snicker's First Day" are awesome! Reminds me so much of when I became my mare's owner and had her moved to a better stable -(she's at home now) I'll bet I took a million pictures like a mom taking a child on the first day of school....Didn't it make you feel great as you left? :)

Thanks, everyone. :)

- I was actually quite worried when I left for the first night, and rightfully so - it turned out to be quite tough for him as some of the herd decided to bully him around and have some fights, also leaving without hay, so he was rather unhappy the next morning, when I came to see him, but it's getting better.

Moei - No, not a single fight that day, to my surprise, but he's had some since then and I've found quite a lot of bite and kick marks on him. Luckily, none too serious and he'll be healing quickly.

So - more pictures! The pasturewarming party was just great. We had a wonderful trail ride with some fun cantering (Snickers was full of spunk, speed and energy, it was tons of joy! ), and then a pancake pary for the human barn buddies later in the evening. My boy seemed to enjoy all the attention he got. :)

A little glimpse on the trail ride:

Cantering towards the new home

Closer... Yeah, I know my leg position is horrible in this picture, which also is not of the best quality, but heck, we had our fun! :)

Relaxing afterwards in the arena

And, of course, the main event! In Latvia, we have a tradition for housewarmings and similar welcomings in new places, which is called "Salt bread". The newcomer is given some rye bread with salt, as a wish that he always has luck and wealth in his new home. So, Snickers got his salted bread and enjoyed every crumble of it. :)

Thanks for sharing these wonderful happy photos, Saranda!! I'm so glad that despite a rough first night, things seem remarkable well! By the way, the countryside (and snow!) in Latvia looks very similar to my home in Northern MI! I wish you and Snickers luck and wealth in your new home :)

Aw, thanks, Northenstar! :) And, if the nature and weather conditions really are quite similar in Northen MI to the ones in Latvia, then you must know how great it is to live in this type of places. :)

Some trail photos of the place we moved to in all seasons. My friend took them and I am allowed to use them as an illustration, because we're really proud of our own little paradise, but nor me, nor Snickers are in these pictures.

Just thought I'd share a bit more pics. :)

Almost ready for the ride...

Smile! Me & Snickers on the right.

Taking off -

And coming back home! Snickers was given the honour to lead the ride. :)

Awh I love him in all his fuzzies! I'm also jealous of your snow- I've only seen mountaintop snow that's been there for weeks... Nothing fresh. Lol. Hasn't snowed where I live in over 20 years!
