Play Day

It was an absolutely gorgeous day out today, so I let everyone out together in the largest pen, after everyone had a grooming/clipping/farrier session. They were all spiffed up and they wanted to go!


They all enjoyed stretching their legs. Paula...


Fabian...


Bambi...



Moose...


They all had a blast...

And almost a wreck!

The boys stuck together most of the time.


The girls stayed to themselves as well.


But there were a few times where Fabian and Bambi would play. They're the same size, the same age, and they both have their sire's orneriness.


Fabian was definitely the instigator in these situations. He reminds me more and more of his sire everyday...


...especially when he moves like this.

Watching these kids have so much fun on such a beautiful day makes me so thankful, to be able to have them in my life.

They are all gorgeous - and Moose just gets bigger every day!

Love the war bonnet, I think I would have called him Atimw (big dog or horse in Cree), he's way better looking than any moose I've ever seen. I guess I might be a little partial to those wild coloured horses.

Love all your horses, they are beautiful. I'm a big fan of paints too.
Whenever our herd plays like this it's so much fun to watch. There's nothing like a herd having fun.

Thanks all! Moose does grow everyday it seems :) Atimw would have been a cool name for him! He came with his name and it seemed to fit him too well, so it was easy to keep.... And I'm glad he's better looking than a Moose, too! Ha!!

I love watching the herd when they are in a playful mood. Horses seem to enjoy life so much. They have a wonderful way of making all my troubles disappear.
