We took Annabelle and her baby out to the pasture for the first time today, in an area that was partitioned off from the other animals. We stayed with them for a few hours, to make sure they were comfortable, and to visit with anyone who stopped by to see the new horse.
After a little getting used to, the filly decided to run around the pen, nurse, and check out her new surroundings. Annabelle got right to grazing.
It was all so exciting, and we could tell she was getting tired. But she didn’t want to go to sleep! (Do you see gold bug?)
Finally, she couldn’t stay awake any longer and drifted off to sleep. Annabelle stopped grazing and stood over her baby as she slept. It was so sweet.
Little girl, you’ve had a busy day.
