A normal start to the day....chores and turnout.
Once again we tried Maggie and Angel with the other girls.
Yesterday went pretty well and we were hoping for more progress.
Karen and I were standing by with lead lines and crops.
Then the body language started.
No pictures of the action, as we were trying to stop it.
Moon turned her butt to Maggie (which she has done to Abbe and Berlin...who moved away) and the kicking started. It looked like two bucking donkeys going at it and we ran right over. The horses all moved and didn't it start up again in the paddock. We separated them immediately and checked out the damage. Maggie already had a bad left hind, got skinned up a little and was then polticed and wrapped. Moon needed some attention as Maggie connected with her several times. Things are not looking good for them to be together unless someone is out there babysitting or they are on a lead.
At 10:30 it was time for class. They have to put up with me in my barn clothes frequently.
When it was over, Tina went out and picked some apples for her ponies.
This afternoon I switched the horses around for awhile.
Both Angel and Maggie went into the back run-in and seem quite comfortable.
An early dinner tonight.
Made a quick salad and defrosted some of my leek soup.
Gary and I both love to put bean salad on top of our regular salad. Do you? It's so good!
Evening chores...still pretty warm out there.
Poor Berlin is still a disaster, but seems ok. Now these spots are weeping. Suggestions?
As per usual, the girls were happy to be tucked in.
Tomorrow is another day.
