I went out to take my board check and Remus’s new salt block (he eats them like candy!) the other night and my friend Brooke had moved her mare to our barn. Remus knows Petra and was happy to see her again. However, Petra was in a small paddock while her two new pasture mates in the field next to her promptly went down the hill and disappeared in the big field. Petra was having a fit and this big tbred mare would have no problem clearing the gate or fence so Shawn decided to go ahead and turn her out with the two since they all seemed okay.
What does this have to do with Remus?? Well Remus and company (Sterling and EB) were in the field that is more open and they decided to swap fields with Remus and with Petra’s group. Remus and friends were out grazing happily and we meandered out there to catch them and move them over. All was fine and then we brought Petra up to turn out with her new friends.
Well Remus and Sterling pretty much lost their tiny Beavis and Butthead minds. Petra and the two other mares decided it was RODEO time and proceeded to leap, squeal, kick and then leap again. Remus and Sterling and EB decided this was much too much fun to miss so they started running too.
I stood there for most of the acrobatics before I realized I had my phone in my back pocket (I so smart right?). So I started snapping photos. Mostly of this gorgeous buckskin (his color has gotten SO dark!) who I didn’t recognize cause he had his head up so high.
They finally all settled down and resumed eating but there were some shenanigans going on for a while. We all stood there and watched, none of us ready to leave until we knew they were settled. Horse people. We have to be the only kind of people to stand outside in the heat, swatting gnats, watching horses leap and play, and not mind! HA
I have been to dad’s in VA since Sunday. Heading back to DE on Weds. I was at doctors with him yesterday (just routine stuff) and literally could only read blogs not post. UGH. Then his internet is SO slow it took me an hour to finally get the photos uploaded for this short post. Fun times eh??
Update on Gretchen, her xrays were good (though they found two chips in her, one is from the rescue we got her from, the other, who knows. it is an old chip LOL). So she gets the lump removed next Monday! Wish us luck!!
Can you believe a week from today the movers are at my house? BLECH! And a week from Friday our closing is scheduled for the house in TN. Time is flying!!
