Moving to a new home
 
I moved my gelding, Snickers, to a new 24/7 pasture boarding place last Saturday. It was extremely cold and I was worried of how'd he do, but he was just fine andmade himself comfortable quite soon. Of course, here's some pictures. :)

1. As I said, it was cold. Around -25 by Celsium, that's why the ninja face. Snickers is observing the first one of the new herd approaching.

2. Curious...

3. The friendliest of them all - a young gelding, named Roi - approaches:

4. Getting to know...

5. Starting to play already!

6. Interesting enough, Roi is very protective and guards the newcomers against attacks of the other herdmates:

7. First meal:

8. Grain is served like this, so that the horses don't fight over it, but Snickers managed to annoy one of his new buddies, lol:

9. Some of the others, enjoying winter:

10. And some more. The flaxen chesnut is the leader, a Latvian Draft gelding:

Logibear24 02-10-2012 04:05 PM

Great pictures!! More please :)

Saranda 02-10-2012 04:09 PM

Thanks, I'll let Snickers know he's looking great. :)

annaleah, yeah, it's amazing. The first night was a bit too cold for him, as the others chased him away from hay all the time, but it's ok now and he got used to it. Also, he gets additional hay. :) Snickers is a Latvian Warmblood gelding, light draft type. They come also in sports type and are the most popular breed in Latvia.

Logibear, Snickers is throwing a pasturewarming party this weekend, so I hope somebody will bring a camera (I don't have one) and I'll be able to post some more. :)

Aw! I love his new Pal bein protective of him! too cute! Somebody doesnt want to share his new friend eh? :) Love the pics too!

Saranda 02-10-2012 04:19 PM

Yeah, Maple, Roi is one-of-a-kind, I was told that he's always like this with the newcomers and then gradually loses interest about them as they start fitting in the herd. He's like a counselor and a guide to every new horse who joins the herd, and that seems so sweet. :)
