Happy early New Year Spotty! How are you liking your first winter? Are you walking through the snow or do you have snow paths? Have there been any offers on someone making you their new colt?

I need to advertise a bit better for someone to come knocking on my door for him.
Sometime in the next month, he'll get moved over to the gelding paddock and get a new education; the mares seem to let him get by with anything and everything; and we don't want a whoops, so we'll put him out with the boys.

Weaning part 2...  Moved Spotty over to the gelding pen today.  I thought I had gotten further with his halter training, guess not, what a stink.   I let the gelding out on their little bit of pasture, put Spotty in their paddock, let them talk across the fence for a few, then put them together.  spotty was more worried about the mares he just left than the gelding he just joined.   Too cold to stay out and watch for very long; and tomorrow, I'll have to figure out the logistics of feeding 4 boys in the same paddock.   
Turned Tana and Bonny back out with the other mares and Bliss, will make my life easier to only have one mare pen for winter; one water tub to work with and one hay feeder to fill up.

Went out to feed tonight, and the geldings are less impressed with Spotty now than when I turned him.  I know it takes them time to figure out their positions, so I put out more piles than horses to be sure Spotty gets a chance.  [The three geldings usually just eat at the feeder, but adding Spotty has them all goofy, so put it in piles around the paddock.]

Just hope he gets a chance to eat tonight, and the boys aren't too bossy with him.

Odd number of hay piles should help with getting bossed about. Them not being too impressed with Spotty might humble him a bit also. Can't be a Studly StrangeLove if the girls could care less where he is and the boys treat him like a bothersome upstart! LOL

Oh, p.s.....

Is it too cold to get pictures of them wading around in the snowbanks? Do your fences disappear under it? Hope everything transitions smoothly and you get to quilt a bit.

Single digits, so camera doesn't really like the cold; but I'll see what I can do before winter snow is gone.   We don't have enough snow this year to have drifted under fences, but it's happened before, and Jasper walked right up a snowbank and over the fence (put up a mesh panel in that spot til snow melted).

Picture is 2009, at the time it was Dakota's pen, now it's Toppers:

Put up a pipe panel for a gate across the second shelter to make a third feed spot for the geldings.   Manny and Monte go in the big shelter and share a stall, so I'm sure someone gets more than his share, have been doing this for 3 years, so they get along fine.   Today, Dakota went in the other shelter with the "new" panel gate for his meal; and Spotty had free run of the main paddock.    They seem to be getting along pretty good today.    Eventually, I'll need to decide about selling or gelding Spotty, I have no plans to raise appies, so if he stays he'll be gelded.
