Oberon & Sebastian ... together for the first time



I found Oberon and Sebastian together today.  The other two geldings will join them on Thursday and are out in the pasture grazing.  No hardship for them as the weather is very nice and no need really for a shed.  Sebastian is still busy taking everything in... there are a lot of horses and activity to look at from where he is standing.


Mystic (a gelding) looks a lot like Sebastian's old stable mate, except it was a mare.


I just love his very masculine head.  He is 3 1/2 years old and looks to me like he still has a bit of growing to do...  I bet he will grow at least another inch.  And of course, he will fill out as he is half Friesian.


Meeting the neighbors...


Sebastian is definitely the one moving Oberon around - I had hoped Oberon would be the leader - but he isn't exactly submissive.  I saw Oberon stand his ground a bit... but when you are the little guy, I guess it goes with the territory.  Oberon seems used to it and still exudes a lot of confidence.

There IS a bit of a size difference there, isn't there? They look happy together, though! Handsome boys!!

Looks like they will be okay together. It is always interesting to see the pecking order in a herd.

He makes Oberon look small! Glad everything went smoothly putting them together.
