So you all know that Mo decided to switch pastures earlier in the week. I was quite surprised because I thought he loved Annie and Missy Miss. But, I guess I was wrong because he begged to be let into Finn and BG’s pasture.
Well, after a kerfuffle, it ended up that Mo, Gwen and Wrigley ended up together. Finn and BG departed to an upper pasture.
Gwen and Wrigley are siblings and they tolerate each other. But I think Gwen simply HATED Mo. She pinned her ears at him constantly… Wrig pinned his ears at both of them to make sure he was BOSS… I think it was all just too volatile for that threesome. I think Gwen and Mo wanted AWAY from each other! (Noting the battle scars on Mo’s back, I think they all had words…).
Anyway, I had left their gate open to the big field so that they could work it out in that open space – if need by.
When I went out to feed this morning and get everyone ready for the farrier, this was my view. Mo wasn’t coming in for breakfast. Instead, he was standing outside of his previous pasture (the one with Annie and Missy Miss). I figured he wanted back in, away from Gwen and Wrig. So, I entered the big pasture and approached Mo.
BUT AS I WAS OPENING THE GATE, GWEN RACED BY AND BANGED ON THE PONY PASTURE GATE!
Lo and behold, Gwen shot out and ran past us to the Pony Pasture. She started banging on the gate to get in with them.
OK. That’s an easy ask. They know each other very well… OK.
BUT MO DIDN’T WANT TO GO INTO HIS OLD PASTURE…
I turned my attention back to Mo. I opened the gate into Annie and Missy Miss’ pasture.
