We have had a busy week and little riding has been done. Not that the horses are complaining. The weather has been nice and they have enjoyed being let loose in the big pastures, although there really isn't much to eat. The four geldings that share space are really a great group of guys, but feeding time is always fun to watch. Above, Sebastian sees Oberon coming back from a short ride and would love it if Oberon would share his grain... ha! Right.
I also thought I would bring to my readers attention that Sebastian's breeder has a few of thier horses up for sale (due in large part to a shortage of hay!). A number of the mares are in foal by Sebastian's Friesian father, Raven. Click HERE if you are interested.
Oberon may be the smallest, but when it comes to food, he is the orneriest. His little leg often paws at his grain pan. He loves his grain (and I did sneak a small handful to Sebastian)
The fact that Oberon can move big Buddy always makes me laugh. Buddy is the oldest and kindest of the four geldings. A gentle giant, truly.
The almost white horse, Mystic, just looks resigned. "OK, I'm moving"...
and Oberon says "Oh no, I'm not moving..."
Oberon IS willing to share his hay with Sebastian, though. And did I mention that Buddy is the wisest?... (I linked the photo below to Friday Fences #14.)
He knows seeking solitude farthest away is best...
Hope you all have a wonderful New Years' Eve and Day!
