It's Been a Full Week and Then Some

I took off Monday and Tuesday last week to spend time with the horses. I am SO glad I did. The first few days of feeding twice a day was time consuming. The horses were learning and new routine and I was trying to figure out a new routine! Until they could figure out what the routine was I was having to halter and lead them where I wanted them to be.

Is it just me or does this picture make the theme song of Bonanza run through your head! This was how I was greeted Tuesday morning!
After the explosive encounters Clyde had with the trio we separated him from them to keep him from getting beat up. On Tuesday I decided to introduce one horse at a time beginning with Patches. She is the 13yo.

So far so good....maybe a little kissy face?

ok...maybe not!

I decided to add one more. One more girl that is.
Clyde has always had a way with the ladies!

While taking pictures of the horses I noticed that I could still see the moon and it was 11 o'clock in the morning! I thought it was way cool!

Every time I added Diamond (the black & white gelding) he would try to keep the girls away from Clyde.

Do you see how Patches is making her way to get closer to Clyde?

Mission completed!

Working Diamond in the round pen.

Kennedy gets her first ride on one of the new horses! Diamond is probably the most ready of the three but I still need to spend some time with him. The three have been together for years and have not ever been apart so when you take one away they experience anxiety. Hoping to work on that.

Have a good one!
