    Beach Boys sang a version of "California Dreaming", so I was thinking pulling names from the band members, but might be short on girly names doing that... How about "Wilson", "Love", "Jardine" and I'm having trouble with a fourth name, perhaps something pulled from a song, even "Dream" as a name.

    Wilson for the lil guy! Wee Willy :). I am really smitten with him.
    So glad to hear that they are settling in and feeling better!

    We got the little old dude moved over to my friends place yesterday. What a little champ he is. Went right up our makeshift ramp into her minivan. I rode in the back with him the ten minutes to her place and he was chill the whole time. He was thrilled to leap out into her perfect lawn when we arrived and enjoyed meeting her Tennessee walker mares the old boys still got it. He has definitely put on weight just in the last week and is feeling much more sparky!!

    I wouldn't recommend mixing with full size, and keep an eye on him, if the big mares come in heat, he'll try to get to them, don't think size will deter him.

    Yay! So happy for him. What a sweet picture of the welcome the mares were giving him. Love it!

    I wouldn't advise mixing with full-size. And, if that is not the intention; just keep an eye on him around mares, even full-size mares, he may work hard at finding a way to get to them when they come into heat. [A persistent stallion with a willing mare can make it happen; full-size mares have been known to lay down to accommodate a mini stallion.]

    Yes, he won't be going in with them, he's much too small, they'd end up kicking his head off I'm sure LOL. He has his own turnout space and stall for nighttime to be safe from anything bigger than he is.

    She has reached full stalker status. This is what happens if I try to brush someone besides her
