Well. We got him unloaded and situated. In about 5 minutes he and Drifter were grooming each other over the fence. Not one squeal, ever.
Ren up to grab a coke from our clubhouse area with my friend, come back and Drifter has jumped in with the new guy. Never picked a fight with each other, so we watched them for about two hours and then re separated them.
Guess that introduction is going to be a lot easier than I anticipated
. New guy is getting a PPE later this week. Owners decided to tell me today as they handed over his papers they actually lied to me about his age. He is newly 4, not 5. Which concerns me with the way they have been working him, but we will see what the PPE says.
He has already grown at least an inch since I saw him 2 weeks ago, so I am assuming he is in his last growth phase. They brought him out of the stall and I was like
. Hes gonna be a big boy I think.
Without further ado, here is one pic of "Whiskey" in the trailer and one horrible shot of him and Drifter after Drift jumped in with him. We opened the gate between the paddock they were in and our all weather arena to give them a little more room in case something should happen before we got them apart again.
Whiskey is very gangly. I am hoping he grows into his legs. whiskey1.jpg whiskey2.jpg
