Learning to be a horse
With all of this unseasonably dry weather we've been having, it seemed like a perfect time to introduce Eva to a larger turn-out. We started by slowly making her living arrangements larger and then included a few hours a day in a small turnout. She is SO friendly and kind to all of the horses and absolutely does not make a fuss over the fence, that we could turn her out next to even the most obnoxious horse on the farm without worry.
My good friend has also recently bought a horse from Golden Gate Fields, and this cool mare seemed like she might be a perfect turn-out buddy for Eva. After living next to each other in the barn, we turned them out and they became instant friends and seem to genuinely enjoy each others company. Eva likes to play after she gets a good roll, but they keep the lid on and after kicking up their heels a bit, they simply wander around, relaxing in the sun.
