Gallop

Cam and I went out to the barn at 7:30 to oversee Teddy during his turnout this evening. It was his first experience with night turnout, and I wanted to observe him for a while to make sure he was adjusting to his revamped schedule and a new field. Without the summer sun beating down on him, he seemed refreshed, galloping around the perimeter of his enclosure and checking out his surroundings. Thankfully, he settled down after about 15 minutes and put his head down to graze. Often, change is just as hard for horses as it is for us, but I think Teddy’s finally realizing that sometimes change brings good things, too.

    OMG….caring for horses and knowing what to do and when. Does Teddy have blinders on? It even looks like his eyes are completely covered. Will he return to the barn happily in the morning? Does he have a friend in the paddock? Lucky Teddy being able to share your property.

    • I should have mentioned he has a fly mask on to keep the flies off his face. It’s like looking through a screen door. He does like being outside at night much better than during the day. He doesn’t have a friend in the paddock, but he can see other horses all around him who are also out at night. He’s much happier. Unfortunately, he’s not at our house as we have a mountain property. He lives about 10 minutes from us now so I can see him every day.
