He's very nice. Why do keep him in new boarding place? (I thought you have your own nice facility :) ).

So now he's on ITO in a private paddock with taller fences :P I think he was just very unhappy to be in a strange place with strange horses; he's settled in very well, and hopefully we can try him on full turn-out again soon.
Aww poor Wikke they weren't being very nice to him. I don't blame him for running away. He was just wanting to be friends :(

Nah, all the previous photos of him have been taken on the farm where he was bred, which is about an hour's drive from where I live. I WISH I owned that place, its beautiful! :P
