Hauling Chance

With temps over 100 degrees again this weekend we drank lots of cold water and continued to make progress.  We were able to get all the post sunk for Chances turn out and half the fencing up on his 40 x 80 foot turn out.

Sunday morning he was hauled to my neighbors house for a couple weeks while we finish getting ready to bring him home. I'm happy I don't have to drive into town daily now, makes for more time to keep busting out moves here. 

I went over a couple times to check on him and he is not happy. He's been running the fence line and calling for the two mares in the lower pasture. He's soaking wet with sweat and I'm surprised. And worried. Its hot and I don't want him to get dehydrated.  He's never acted like this before, apparently he's a ladies man now... Fingers crossed he's calmed down a bit this morning.

I'm thinking I may to have a companion for him before I bring him home. I don't want to rush into getting our 2nd horse as I am looking for something very specific there. So perhaps a mini donkey? I want to get one for the goat and sheep for protection anyways, maybe I'll just get her early? I'm off to finish my coffee with Chance and ride him over to our place for a visit. 

Happy Monday Peeps!


  1. I'm sure he's just bewildered at his new surroundings...probably nothing to worry about :)

  2. he'll settle in - or wear himself out fretting. poor boy.

  3. I'm sure it's the new place he's trying to deal with. As long as he knows you are there to see him, he'll be okay. Have fun!

  4. Aww poor guy! I don't know anything about horses so I can't offer any advice. I hope you can bring him home for good soon!
