Stormy was coming up on seven weeks old and had never been out of her paddock and the adjacent paddock. We figured it was time. So we locked the herd in the eastern pasture, opened the gate from Mustang Paddock to the western pasture, and right out they came.
But with all that space, Saffy chose to stay near the other horses. As we keep discovering, in the battle between being alone and being with, genetics always win. Even over worry.
Here’s a short video clip of mama and baby having their first pasture romp together. It’s the first time Saffron has had a good run since she arrived. And she can’t keep up with baby :)
