Chica would be staying in one of the three pastures, but which one? Initially my friend thought to keep her with the BO's broodie, Lexi, as Covergirl would be leaving with her owner in only a few weeks for another year at school in Idaho. In the meantime, I told my friend she could put Chica in with Milo and we could see how they would get along. I also felt that Milo needed a friend again as it had been a couple weeks since Diego moved out. She agreed and after I left and she worked Chica, she put her in with Milo. Apparently, they did just fine and she sent me a photo of them grazing together.
The next day I got a voicemail from her saying that they were still doing well and in fact, come dinner time (our most concerned portion of their rooming together) they shared the same grain bucket! Apparently Milo and Chica switched off grain mouthfuls and there were no hooves flying or pinned ears. Thats great news! But....I dont really want the money I spend in supplements being shared between two horses. So I think Chica will start getting her own grain (currently she is with none) to hopefully keep the two occupied eating in separate buckets.
Enough chatter now, meet the new girl! I hope she stays with Milo through the winter.
|Meet Chica! I forget her registered name though. Pretty girl.|
|Whatta boat! Fun ride though! Pwetty girl|
|Let's congregate around the wheelbarrow...|
They seem to be doing well together. Hope it lasts!
