I seem to recall myself saying, "No more equines!"
Baaaaahahahahahhahahaha Oh I slay myself!
Meet Jimmy the Shetland pony. He is 15 years old and badly needed a forever home. So he's come to live here, even though it means we have to build another damn box stall before winter.
He is super cute, and rides and drives. He came with a saddle and cart. May be a bit rusty at it, but we will tune him up and get him going in the new sand ring that's nearly finished!
(Before the sand was added over the gravel layer)
Jimmy arrived today and the introductions have gone well. First he met Esme. No problems there...
Then we put him with Saul and Finney over in the pasture/sand ring area. There was some screeching, kicking and chasing...
... but things settled down pretty quickly.
Finney chasing Jimmy chasing Saul.
Saul's opinion of it all is HELL NO. But I think Finney and Jimmy will be buddies...
Jimmy soon felt comfortable enough to roll on the ground next to Finney...
...who soon felt comfortable enough to roll on the ground next to Jimmy!
Yes, I think all will be well! :)
My Dad's name was Jim so I took it as a sign that this pony is named Jimmy!
Hope you are all having a great weekend.
