    I can not be more proud of my colt, as I am today. After a horrendous thunderstorm at 3am, I was getting up to do my work, when I was alerted that my colt was loose. So i'm in my pj's, thinking the worst, I gather my ropes and a couple treats and head for the door. I walk to the field where I usually train him, and he's standing there at the edge just munchin the grass. I walk up and say "Storm what are you doing? Huh little boy?" Buddy he perked those ears up, and relaxed and came walking over and pushed his head into my chest. He was quite shaken up, he didn't want to go back into his fence. After I got him back in, my old gelding Shadow came and checked him over as if he was his own colt, then bumped me with his nose to tell me thank you for returning his pasture mate/kid. My horses never cease to amaze me. Storm was so shaken up though all he wanted to do was be close to me. Once turned loose he was ok with everything, and went off to eat more. I fixed the fence where he had gone through, and bid them farewell until later. He didn't even bother to go and see his mom and half sister and other mares in the field across from him!! He's such an awesome little horse, sometimes I wonder what he's thinking...

    Yep and he did it again today, personally I think there was something in their pasture that was bothering them or something. We've been having issues with bears, so I moved them into the pasture with my cows, now him and Shadow are laying down comfortably and resting.

    Well forum,
    Yes the last two mornings in a row my colt has escaped from his pasture, but what I come to find out is that someone had disconnected the jumper wire, connecting their pasture to the cattle pasture. Not only that, this morning instead of my FIL coming over to get me to catch my colt, he instead CHASED HIM ABOUT WITH A VEHICLE FOR 20 MINUTES!!!!!! I have never been more infuriated in my entire life!!! And what did Storm do, he attacked the vehicle, LITERALLY, he reared up on it, kicked it, rammed into it with his chest, and continued to challenge it. Meanwhile my FIL sits in the vehicle revving it up and honking the horn, and pursues him!!!! GAH I COULD KILL THAT MAN!!!! Then after all of that he comes over, and tells me he spent 20-30 minutes chasing Storm around to get him back into the fence. And he tells me he couldn't catch him at all when on the ground, WELL DUH!!!! You never worked with him before, why on earth would he let you go near him!!! Then he mentions that he "fixed" the fence, so i'm dressed and out the door, I get to his pasture and about 100ft of fence is lying on the ground. Now i'm not sure what kind of "fixing" that is, but it's not how I do it. I halter Storm, check him over really well, he was rather sweated and spooked, I hope he isn't to traumatized after this incident. But over all he was ok. I moved him and Shadow to a new pasture this morning, they are now in with the cattle, and a well maintained fence. Not only that I think there was something in their pasture or around their pasture that had been bothering them. Lately we've been having issues with a black bear coming up to the house, lord only knows where else it will go. So we'll see how things work out in the new pasture. I'm so mad right now....no one even understands.....ugh
    Otherwise the rest of the herd is doing well, with how cold it was this morning, I may start throwing hay out to everyone. It is definitely fall here on the ridge in PA . There is no other way to say it......

    It would look much better as a rug than sniffing around your horses!

    Well forum,
    So far things have been going good, I can't get over how big Storm has gotten in the last year or so, the fact that he's now two and a half years old, and over fifteen hands already doesn't say enough. He's sure going to be a looker when he matures. Even though he likes to be a genuine pain in the butt, he's still my "little boy" since he's the youngest on the farm. And after an interesting weekend, with my FIL second wedding and everything, I did get a few nice pics with the instigator himself LOL. He wasn't fond of the dress though!! I'm glad the weekend ended, I hadn't been so stresses since my own wedding. Overall the herd is doing fantastic, getting ready to head into the fall season, all fat and sleek. Slowly the trees are changing colors already, and we still have about another week or so of August yet. I can't wait until my apples are fully ripe, I get to pick some, and I invited friends up to come pick some with me. Everyting has been going well so far. SO with out any further adue here is my new favorite pic of me and Stormy.
