Alright, so an update to this- we moved Hunter on Monday. He stayed in the round pen overnight where he could see and smell the other horses without being in with them. Yesterday I spent most of the day out there and was able to watch him be turned out with the others, which was uneventful at most.. He only met with one Haflinger and one donkey.. The rest ignored him lol
He seemed SO happy to be back out on pasture and out of a stall! He's finally able to be a horse again.
The new barn
Checking out the barn and horses behind him
Rode with this girl, she was on one of the BO's horses (who she woke up before hopping on) and Coffee decided she was still too tired and wanted to sleep some more... lol
First turned out and checking out the horses in the other area (multiple paddocks connect by gates, can be closed off as needed)
Coffee needed a good roll when turned back out
All the horses Hunter was staring at
At one point I left him alone, lost track of him and went to check on him to find him checking out the donkey. I couldn't get to my camera in time to see them checking each other out, but here's one of just Festus!
Then Hunter made friends with a Haflinger
Then decided he wanted to hang out on his own for a little while exploring
