Pasture Mates

Does your horse live in the pasture, or spend the majority of it's time in one? Who are his/her pasture buddies?

My gelding Colby spends the night in a stall, but his mornings and afternoons out grazing. Here are some of his pals:

Windsong - A beautiful red roan Quarter horse mare. She is a boarder.
Diablo - An elderly, retired racehorse. He is chestnut with a white face and two socks.
Kirby - A yearling stallion. He is a Paint cross, I think, and has a tendency to kick Colby )-:
Lovey - A pretty palomino mare. Breed and age unknown. She is sweet as can be.
Striker - A bay Morgan. His owners abandoned him in the wintertime, so the stable owner took him in and is using him as a show pony for her two sons.
Autumn - A pretty dun AQH mare. She is my trainer's 12 year old horse, and I used to exercise her on the weekends. She bucks when cantered.

Who are YOUR pasture mates?

Zu gets turned out with LOTS of other geldings.
He likes his herd. They're out pretty much all day, and come back in at night.

Lets see...

Likewise- OTTB off the track, bit of a troublemaker but he's adorable.
Pride- Big gorgeous bay gelding. Dunno what breed.
Coach- Bay TB. I love him, he's a real sweetheart.
Mac Murphy- REALLY big OTTB, dapple grey, a gentle giant.
Duke- Little chestnut pony.
Lucca- Friesian gelding. A bit spooky, really beautiful.
Telly- Little Morgan gelding. Blood bay.
Big Guy- The biggest horse at the barn, faded black, sweet boy.
Shadow- Bay gelding, star and an almost faded looking snip.
Peanut- Little chestnut pinto pony. Really adorable.
Cowboy- New rescue. Bay, about 16hh, super sweet.

And that's it!

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

We just have the two QHs. They spend their nights and most of their day in their corral/stall, and a few hours in the evenings in the pasture together.

Unless you count the magpies that perch on them as pasture mates...

Right now our Aero is an only "child". She can see several horses from her pasture, but none are directly across the fence or anything of that nature. She does have a deer friend who stops by each evening to have a chat and a bite to eat. I am working on convincing my husband to let us get her a friend, and am really leaning towards a mini-donk.

Chinga and Pumpkin are put out in Chinga's paddock on the weekend to play. So they are sort of paddock/pasture buddies.

My two horses Tonka and King (a palomino QH and a black Tennessee Walker, respectively) both spend most of their time in pasture. Their pasture mates are two sibling brown TB - Rosey and Dudley.
