How Do You Folks with More Than Two Horses Ever Blog?

Cause I sure haven't had much time for anything besides wheelbarrowing bags of hay in and loads of mucky out, brushing out mountains of shedding hair, soaking abscesses, and being a full service minion to Autumn, Lyra, and Red. The Autumn Project has been a wild success and a week ago the Princess horse returned to the general pasture after six weeks of confinement to regain the weight she lost when abandoned. She is in wonderful shape, though still needing to gain about 50 pounds. Remember, she weighed only 820 the night we brought her in for the first time.

As soon as she got into the GP, she called for her friends. They answered and came running. Here they come, eager to greet their good friend. Horses have such deep and long lasting relationships. People just don't realize the depth of such bonds, it has been six weeks and look, Moose and Zindi are truly thrilled to see Autumn again.

I love how horses will flow into a rythym with each other.

Autumn's shiny shoulders are from the Shapely's MTG sulfur lotion I used for a case of rain rot.

Heading out, Moose is close behind his beloved Autumn.
I think it is so true, "horses never forget."
