Sonny's gonna be in a new pasture whee....need ideas though

Well I talked to the BO and she said it was fine if I put Sonny, and his friend with him. His friend is a 6 year old mare named Zoey. Zoey is totally in love with Sonny. She will walk down with him when I lead Sonny down to his pasture (Zoey will actually walk as far as she can in her pasture with him). She'll call to him and he'll call back. Her ears perk up when she sees him, and she runs to the fence occasionally to say hi.

Not only do I want to put the two together because they get along with each other, but I think Sonny would be a good influence to Zoey. Zoey, though she is the sweetest mare ever, needs to learn about personal space....not that she's getting in your space to be pushy...but in a "OMG I love my best friend"...but it gets annoying.

Well he'll be in there when I finish cleaning the pasture...the run-in-shed was just filled with poop (old poop) and the pasture has some poop in I want it nice and clean before he goes in there. I'm almost done...I've raked most of the poop into piles and then I plan on Friday and Sunday to get it out of 3 fences so there's more boards (the fence itself is fine, just I think it needs at least one more board)

I need help though on one part...what can I use to kill flies and so least around the run-in-shed so they are "safe" in there?

Here are pictures of Sonny and Zoey

have you tried fly bait? it comes in big cans at farm stores like Tractor Supply... it works fairly well, it worked tons better when it was yellow though....

^I agree!! Try that, that should work well for minimizing flies.

Ride more, worry less.

Why are you cleaning the pasture and repairing the fencing of the place you board at?

The BO should be the one doing this.
