Twitch update *picture heavy*
little twitch is now 9 days old! we bush hogged all the high parts of the pasture and left the rest which is why the pasture looks a bit uneven but we were in a hurry to get it done before the day ended. we introduce all the horses to Carmen and twitch slowly, by doing the lead mare first. on down the pecking order. things went VERY smooth. Baby makes a good auntie to Twitch. our only Issue seems to be with my 2 and a half year old colt. he seems to like to go after twitch, and carmen has to nip it in the bud quickly. i think its because he's never really been around a baby, but im not sure.
i also want to state that it may be because twitch is fully dropped. he was fully dropped at birth. his testes are twice the size of my colts was when i got him gelded at 13 months old. so we are going to go ahead and have twitch gelded next month when it starts to cool off a bit.
now.. pictures! the few from him in the dry lot are from a few days ago. and the ones from the field are from today.
he always trying to get as many feet as possible into her food bowl while she's eating. so farr he's managed to get 3. lol
my mom is smitten. i think we may end up keeping him.
he's still iffy about being handled
