|Shortly after arriving on the first lag of his journey.|
|It was pretty snowy on the back-roads down to the barn he was |
staying at. Thankfully the highway was better.
After we had dropped off the other mare we were hauling, Spud had the run of the entire trailer, which was good. He is a very good hauler, just stands quietly and doesn't make a fuss.
After the 6.5hr drive, he met Suzie for the first time. There was no squealing, no kicking or anything else (well, Suzie DID pin her ears at him when he tried to eat next to her). I'm pretty sure it was love at first sight, which was totally adorable to see. He settled right in and chomped down some hay (after Suzie attempted to bite him). It has been pretty uneventful thus far, but later today I am going to be hitching him up to the cart. I debated waiting a bit longer, but he is pretty quiet and mellow, as well as I go back to work tomorrow so any play time we have will be very, very limited with the lack of daylight!
