No Rambling

No rambling from me tonight as it is late and I need to tuck in the World's Cutest Fainting Goats and go to bed (the crowd stands and roars!). Video and pictures from the weekend:

Another video clip of the big boys taking their daily runabout. Apollo and Levendi come first, then Thomas, followed by Trigger and Elfin, then Leo, Tony, Ivan and Homer. Tony is the one trotting at the end. So many lovely movers to watch as they run around!

Norman, medium pony, the embodiment of "big things come in small packages" with his huge personality

Thomas and Elfin watching Leo roll - really they were just waiting for his spot for their own use

Teddy and O'Reilly in the front; Chance, Dustin, Trigger and Tony in the back

The Don looking fit and healthy as ever, sometimes I think he is doing some kind of reverse aging thing as year after year he looks and acts exactly the same

Leo and Levendi soaking up the sun and enjoying some grass

Handsome Thomas (Holsteiner)

Lightening, Arabian, grazing by one of the sheds

MyLight, Harmony, Cuff Links, Buffy, Missy . . .

. . . and Lily was just out of the frame. That is Apollo in the background

I have a question (I know, another one, sorry!). I don't recall if you've mentioned anything before but I'm curious if you have to be careful once the grasses start greening up in the spring. Do you ever have to take any measures to prevent founder?

Great pics. I love The Don!

RB, since the horses are on the pasture year round we don't have any issues in the spring typically. And we have horses here with Cushing's, horses that have previously foundered (before coming here) and other horses that would be considered "high risk" for grass in the wrong situation. We are VERY careful about introducing new horses to grass however.
