And today I brought them out the paddock to give them their feed, one at a time. Bit of a pain but just how it has to be atm.
Sonny first then while Inca was out the others hung round gate. When I first went into paddock both walked towards me which was nice. Inca now associating being caught with nice things. First couple of times I had to hoon round paddock to catch her lol.
Sonny got his front leg over rope and started to freak so i'm telling him to stand still and he seems to actually listen as I pulled lead through. Good to know he has a brain in there!!
Sonny got himself bailed in the corner by bossy Buzz and nearly got put through the fence to the neighbours paddock! Buzz goes up the hill a bit and Sonny back to gate thinking he might have wanted a bit more feed after all. Buzz lays ears back at 10 paces and looks at Sonny and Sonny is out of there quick smart. Old Tess gets in Sonnys face ears back, shake head and he doesn't bat an eyelid!!
Buzz makes me anxious because he wants to boss the other horses even when you have them on a lead, so they want to get out of his way. When you shoo him he will leap away but buck his hindquarters at you. A bit freaky, even though he hasn't lashed out it does not make for a calming time. Buzz is the horse my sister rides. I wish she had kept BillyJack, he was much easier to be around.
A couple of pics from today
