The Herd Grows

Here’s the surprise I’ve hinted at. After I got Andrew, Kathleen went to a horse rescue place and came home with two fine buckskin gentlemen, Remington (7) and Dusty (13).

Dusty, Remington, and Drew

When they got back with the new guys (who have all their shots and were checked out by a vet), they all said “hay” to each other and were fine. When they were let out together the next day, nothing but friendship ensued (and gentle nips). That was a good surprise.

Buddies.

Remington is a perfect quarter horse type. He’s really beautiful. He needs work on his neck, so Trixie is looking at him Monday. (She will look at them all.) but whoa, he can do stuff, potentially.

Dusty is older, very gentle, and will be a great guest horse. He used to be an elderly man’s horse, and was well loved. He loves carrots, and used to have the nickname Bunny. Aww. He likes to chew, too.

Dusty has two white socks.

We’ve spent most of today with these three, walking, learning, and having nice baths. That was fun!

Clean baby.

Much of the rest of the day we got the stalls and pasture ready for Apache. I even had to mow. I meant I got to mow.

On the left is Apache’s low grass.

Now Apache will have little grass just like he needs. Whew. We were outside all day!

Horses in stalls.

Kathleen and I are gonna have so much fun.

Buckskin horses and dog. Plus white.
