My Circus...My Monkeys! (0:

We put the donkeys in with the horses today. (Two weeks ago...took me that long to get this finished and up!!)
It was semi interesting and kind of exciting...
Forgive me yammering!
Some how I managed not to cuss!
Truly a remarkable feet these days...
But then again  I do call my horse a turd bucket.
WTH is a turd bucket?

I'm not 100% sure, but Fiona was being a brat!  (0:

Here is the drama as seen through my iPhone 5S.
Also known as Super Steve.


The last time I introduced a small new horse to the Hee-Haws they went at her like two cats after a mouse.  (They did charge Remi, but she spun and snaked her head and they just veered off...)
It was a yearling filly and as I think back I can't remember how long they had been gelded at the time, and maybe that had something to do with it, but it was NOT pretty.
The filly ran and ended up coming by me, finally, and I'd had time to grab the hose (it was the only thing around at the time) and when she went by with them in hot pursuit, I made contact and left a few welts on the two of them.
Pursuit over, separation started.
After she grew a couple more hands and was no longer new and had gained some confidence their second meeting was less eventful....

I decided to have them live side by side with Beep-Beep, aka Little Nikki, aka Nik-Nik and the other girls for a month before they were turned out together.

As you can see from the video, they were too busy running from and with Fi to really care about the mini.
Fiona thinks she owns them and got a bit protective of them, but that seems to be slowing down...and it also helps that Beep-Beep, aka Little Nikki, aka Nik-Nik doesn't like them.

So now we have a happy little family of 5 again.  We've have 6, but Remi's still in Washington working.  (0:

And those cute little boogers are back to harassing all the good citizens with their shenanigans!
