There's another horse at the barn now. That was the plan all along, but there was no rush as it was important to find the right horse to fit in...enter Dixie, a 22 year-old Thoroughbred cross. She, Mo, and Solana were all together before. While their current stable was being completed, they had all boarded together nearby. Dixie had remained at that place when we moved Mo & Solana to their new home. For various reasons it now makes sense for Dixie to come on board as well.
It's been a smooth transition. Herd dynamics can be a funny thing. It's been unusual as Solana is still getting limited turn-out (though increasing times...we're hopeful it won't be terribly long before she's off "restriction"!). Mo wasn't initially sure what to do with two mares! He seemed to have this theory that he should keep them apart...perhaps so they wouldn't compare notes and plot a coup?
