Introducing…..TKR Merry Go Far. Aka: MerryLegs
Before heading out, we took some time to walk around and do a meet and greet of some of her horses I’ve only seen in pictures – including Merryleg’s mom shown above. She’s VERY pregnant with Merry’s half sibling :).
There might come a time when having similar pictures can be boring….but definitely not the first day a new pair of ears comes home!
All my animals like Matt best. Except my bird. #lifewithparrot.
In the photo above can you see the grey hairs below her eye on the side of her nose? It looks like shine…but it’s actually a patch of grey hairs. Not enough white to go on her papers as a marking. Very unique.
Merrylegs made friends at the water trough. (BTW – if you look closely in this picture, you will see some white patches on her back. As a yearling she was gnawed on by another horse, and the hair came back white). I was pleased to see that at least at the young age of 2, she does NOT have that instant “squeal and strike” thing going on. According to KT* Merrylegs was in raging heat last week.
In fact, In these pictures I can only be sure of who is who because Merrylegs is wearing a halter. Farley has a small star, and Merry’s white patches on her back and grey patch on her face don’t show up well in pictures.
They both seemed adamantly non-confrontational – so much so that is was comical. Eventually I made Farley run around the arena and at least acknowledge the other horse. I’ve never seen Farley so unamused. Finally Farley lunged towards Merry with teeth bared and I had my answer of where everyone would be sleeping tonight and put them in separate pens.
Eventually they will go together in a double – that way they both have more room to move around. This week I’ll turn them out together regularly and see how it goes!
