Beautiful day out there with wonderful sunshine! Just having the bright sun makes things seem happier.
The new horse was a buy that was too good to pass up...unless he proves to be a disaster. He is thin but the girl I got him from managed to put some weight on him in the past two months. He lost weight after she got him but I think she had him blanketed and she turns them all out with round bales and they establish the order of who gets to eat.
Once she saw how thin he was, she changed his feeding program.
Today for the first time since he came last Thursday, they are all outside. He is in the paddocke and the others are in the barnyard. Skidder does not mind him. She is now in heat and thinks he is the most handsome horse she ever met. It should be safe to turn them all out together in a couple of days. I will open the gate and they can make their way to the pasture if they so desire.
Cal thinks he wants Whisper for his horse. She thinks she is mine. I was hoping the gaited would work for me since I like to ride gaited. We will see. He is settling in but I still can't get him filled up. If he rides quieter than she does, Cal can ride him when we ride together. How they each ride will be the deciding factor.
Dental checkup and cleaning today. For me, not the horses. Not my favorite thing to do.
Hope everyone is having a great day. I am typing blind in a way because the computer has decided I can type an entire line before I see it on the screen.
