First Time in the Big Pasture.

Happy Pasture Pals!

This is the day we've been waiting for. The day we let the herd out in the big pastures. I could kick myself that I didn't have my video camera. Echo was so excited on the walk down the runway to get there he was snorting! When we let them go, Echo ran all around like he didn't know what to look at first. He bucked and jumped, sometimes with all four feet off the ground. Everyone else trotted around for a short time looking then just started grazing.
Happy horses.


Running back to us.

Preacher, (head of this herd.)


That's Satire in the foreground.


There were some German Shepherd dogs barking at the horses on the other side of the fence. The horses ran a short distance then stopped and went right back to see what that was! It didn't seem to be any big thing for them. As long as they're in the herd, they feel safe.
See Preacher in the back, moving the herd.


Then everyone goes back to grazing. It was a great day.

  3. They are so beautiful. Echo is making up for the time he lost while nursing his leg.

    Ok, I'm a stupid city girl... Why are their eyes covered while in the pasture? La

  8. Those covers are fly masks to shield their eyes from the bugs and flies.

    It is so nice to see such happy horses -- they look like a riderless drill team when they were running back to you in the field.
