Sometimes you forget the obvious...like that the new horse is TINY & the trough you have is TALL...
Yeah...had to buy a new one.

300 gallons, its massive! I wish it was summer so I could soak in it!!

So adorable!! I love your little herd.

I just bought my first mini last week as a companion to my old pony. I have a feeling they're like potato chips though, not sure how long I'll last with just one...
I'm supposed to train her n sell her, but...I don't wanna!

I just want to gather all of the wee minis! They're so cute!

And, might as well add it here instead of making another thread I'll forget...

17yr gelding, he's 100% available, if anyone is looking. Hoping to figure out what he knows soon & see what he can learn.
He's been very mellow, no kick, bite, rear, spook, leads fine, so on, seems okay with cats/dogs, low man on the totem pole. Previous owner made him sound a bit crazy, but I haven't seen it. 🤷🏽‍♀️

New guy was let out today and you can add "respects hotwire" to his list. He also met Pavlov and didn't bother her one bit. Ran over to hide next to me when Kasia decided to bite his butt, so, he's a smart sweetie.

Thinking of adding a lot of gravel/dust mix to the top part of their track, where their shelter & water is. Everything is so muddy & no fun for any of us...
Moved nets down the line today, just a tiny bit of mud there...for now...lol

Pavlov & Dunie sharing. 😍

There's a 6th net past Oreo, probably hard to see.

I let my 4 out in muzzles the other day.
Pavlov was standing quietly by a tree, but Oreo had a little panic attack over "everyone abandoning him".
I caught him by hand and told him to chill tf out. Then asked him to follow me, he did. He then noticed Pavlov coming over and waited by the gate with her. Brought them hay and all was fine.
Just a momentary loss of reality. Lol

Moved a corner of track to make mowing easier, Oreo & the other ponies approved.

Pavlov, on the other hand, didn't want to be near them. I didn't have anything on me to lead her back, so instead, she had her first ground driving experience.
I need to put a big sponge on a long stick, so that I can more gently tell her not to turn to her blind side. I'll eventually figure out a better method, maybe tapping the shoulder, but for now, she needs a more direct approach.
Yeah, yeah, halter n long lines, I know! But lots of my interactions with them is spontaneous.
