That icy wind was blowing again today and the no-steering riders are out on Saturdays so Nina got turned out. But today she had a playmate, Tino. Tino is a 5 year old TB that belongs to a friend and he lives at the barn when he is not in Fort Collins, where his owner is going to school. We turned them out last year and they were ok so we turned them out today. Nina had fun, not so sure about Tino. She was chasing him around and herding him. He was a little intimidated, he is still kind of a baby. Hopefully she will be a little nicer to him next time, they both need a turnout buddy.
Here they were last summer, grazing in two little paddocks on the hill.
I love how they mimic each other's body position.... it's that herd thing.
