Because everyone loves a "new horse run"....

So I moved Nugget (the sooty palomino) and Rylen (the sorrel with lots of chrome) to a new place last weekend. They're now even closer to home, which is nice.

They've settled in well, met some of the geldings who they'll be turned out with, so I figured yesterday was as good a day as any to get them out of their paddock and into the field.

So first video is the intro to a few members of the herd. Ignore the little bit of shouting, I didn't want them to barrel into the wire fence. They spent most of the time just running around, not being chased, I think they were just happy to stretch their legs. This is the common area with gates to 3 different fields for rotation. The finally made their way to the big field where they found the rest of the herd. Nugget slipped but is just fine, not as much as a nick on either of them though so I think it went great!

Cherrij and rideverystride like this.

WOW, the trot the palomino has in the third video!
They look like they are having a lot of fun.

Thanks for posting those. I enjoyed watching. Loved watching them run with their tails flagged and prancing about.

They do get all full of themselves when checking out a new place and new herd buddies, eh?

Love that fancy trot that Nugget was doing! What a showoff.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

I just wanted to chime in that Nugget's trot made me blank out and drool a little.

Thanks guys!

It's a gelding-only herd, so things are super relaxed. The next day I went to get them they were in with the herd, buddy-buddy with a few already. They haven't come in with any nips or cuts.

I love the "new horse run", they seem so happy. The first day in their paddock (which actually backs onto the mare pasture) Nugget went all "showy stallion"-like and was prancing, arching his neck and making a show of himself for the ladies. I wish I had had my camera, it was beautiful. Rylen on the other hand didn't care, he just wanted to eat lol.
