Bekah's horse "Emma" was delivered about noon yesterday and after listening to the two horses talk to each other all afternoon and into the night, this morning we turned Emma out into the pasture with Curious.
A minute or two of squealing and a few half hearted kicks on Emma's part and it was all settled that Emma would lead and Curious would follow. Coming from a place with over 100 horses Curious is used to herd dynamics and was so thrilled to no longer be alone.
Emma (the darker paint) had been in a two horse home, until the owner had to rehome her. She went to a riding stable as a lesson horse, and although she is a good horse for that purpose, she just didn't seem happy in that busy environment.
Emma is technically a pony - measuring at 14.1 hands but she seems to be as big as 14.2 Curious so I will be referring to them both as horses. (For those that don't know a pony is an equine under 14.2 hands, while a horse is anything 14.2 hands and above.)
