I had to go to Charleston today for medical appointments. In between my appointments I was trying to coordinate the pickup of another horse and I thought everything was going well since we had the evening meal covered.
Oh how wrong I was! On my way home I got that phone call that no horse parent wants.
Peanut and Sabih were previously in the arena together for different reasons. They started a bromance that was cute most days. When the new pasture fencing was completed Peanut moved but Sabih did not. They have been calling to each other daily since then but no real misbehaviour out of either horse. Tonight Peanut was moved back into the barn paddock, saw Sabih, and lost his mind just a little to run away towards the fence that separated them. Sabih started running at the same time, jumped the fence – almost – so he could get to Peanut and they could groom each other. Apparently they really missed each other. Our fence line was not so happy. It now needs around 50 feet repaired. Temporary repairs were made so that the paddock is secure, luckily it was a cross fence and not a perimeter fence. After all that bromance activity, Sabih would not follow Peanut into the paddock and I had to move him when I arrived.
The entire herd moved pastures to get ready for our upcoming arrival – currently a stallion – and Fancy had to let us know just how much she was displeased with her new digs. She decided to redecorate one of the shelters for us.
Everyone else is MOODY! I’m hoping it’s just that we’re close to the full moon and life will settle very soon.
No horses were harmed in the making of this narrative 🙂
