I tried to let all the horses out together yesterday.
It did not work out so well. Killian treated Princess MellyPalouza like she was poor white trash....or a spy....or some sort of forbidden interloper who must be driven away.
She gave him a pretty good double barrel shot right in the chest and then moved away. She was happy to mind her own business and graze away from Killian and Sassy. I had not even had time to get Trax yet.
But he went after her again and he was not playing around either.
I stepped between his charge and my Princess. He altered course and made a big circle back to Sassy and kept his distance while I grabbed Melly and put her back in her pen.
These are the times when I am really glad that we work on ground manners. There are not many things that Killian is truly afraid of....I'm glad that I am one of them!
So for now we are back on rotation, which is probably for the best. My grass when weeks with no water and needs fertilized badly. I don't know that it can handle more than 2 at a time right now.
Eventually I will try again, but first I'll try putting them next to each other so they can become friends over the fence.
