I'm sad for Apollo.

In a couple weeks Apollo's best friend is leaving the barn..
He is the same age as Apollo so they always love to play in the pasture.

All the other horses are older and they just get annoyed with him running all over and trying to play with them.

Here they are being cute.

He will be ok, and likely attach himself to someone else.

I hope so. There is one more 5 year old at the barn who plays with him, but he can't play on Apollos pasture cause he might founder. :(

Sometimes it takes horses some time to warm up to another. I'm sure he'll find someone to buddy up to again.

Logan is a complete recluse with other horses when I put him in new places. I brought him home to two miniature horses... Which he absolutely hated. He now loves the miniature we have left. Probably helps she's a mare... But he's such a reclusive horse when it comes to making new pasture mates. Probably has something to do with him being a barker and not much of a biter when he gets his bluff called :)

Like others said I'm sure he'll bond with another horse :). Both of those horses are EXTREMELY cute.
