So this morning I decided to give everyone a treat. I gave the geldings (Trax and Killian) just a little bit of food, and then after putting some Natures Edge on Trax's cut, I opened the gates and turned them out. Then I grabbed the mare and walked her over to Dannys pasture and put her little bit of haycubes down by the gate. I had already fed Danny first as he always gets a full ration plus his Strategy GX. He eats the grain first of course and was chowing down on the hay cubes when I put her in with him. She was eating her own little bit of food, but she looked up and saw him and left her food to go eat with him.
Interestingly enough, Danny does not share his food with anyone....except Sassy. She is the same way. It was nice to see the two friends sharing a meal again. The were the first two in the herd and never fought or argued over anything. They always shared nicely and I think they were really happy to get to be together again. It has been a long time since they have been able to hang out together. Mostly because she has been in confinement since April. Maybe I am humanizing their feelings, in how I want it to be. But the fact that there was never a pinned ear between them, leads me to beleive otherwise.
