Happy 4th!

Happy Fourth of July to everyone!

Today we moved Tolo up to NDF where he will stay, until the weather gets bad again, as a pasture boarder. We are totally full but our barn owner was nice enough to let him just stay in the big gelding pasture all the time. I was interested to see how he would load, unload and just how he would act in a new place (he has been there once before prior to me selling him/his eye issue). He walked right into the trailer, BACKED out (one good thing coming out of his blindness! He would not EVER back out of a trailer. It honestly terrified him), and was his normal chill self. I ran out and grabbed the pony from the pasture and ponied Tolo around our big hay field and in the arena. He was awesome! Just how I would have expected him to act when I owned him the first time. Mystic was even more of a star because he put up with Tolo playing bumper cars with him!

After giving him a quick brush (spa day tomorrow!) I took my boys out to the pasture. There are 4 other gelding in the pasture besides my two, one of which has been with Tolo previously, so turned them loose and watched as they figured out their dynamics. After a little squealing, a lot of smelling, and a little showing off they were all peacefully grazing together. He gets his shoe back on tomorrow as he pulled it after only 2 weeks. Needless to say I picked him up some pull on bell boots today (along with a new turnout sheet for pony. They were an extra 30% off their sale price and I got a cute red and blue one for 50 bucks!). After he gets his shoe on tomorrow he goes to work! Will be fun to progress with him.

Roz and Tolo :) They were best friends back in the beginning and they totally remembered each other!

Good ponies!

Mystic and Tolo!
