Looks like we'll be picking up Rocky tomorrow. This is a picture of him on the left, Dixie Doodle behind him, SuzyQ facing away & Falena, Rocky's mom on the right. He was a fuzzy little yearling when he left here, 3 years ago.
But things change, & his family asked if we could take him back. When we find homes for them, the option is always there for us to take them back, rather than having them go out into the unknown world.
Falena was a large standard, so I would imagine he is bigger than most of the standards.
All of our pens have someone in them, so John put up a temporary pen for him to eat in. We'll keep him in for a few days to see how he settles in. He's been in with a mare, so we'll have to see if he can stand up to a pushy bossy large standard gelding. If he can we'll probably put him in with Chili for awhile, at least until the mesquite bean season isn't in full swing.
Chili & Pepsi were running, bucking, kicking & spinning this afternoon for quite sometime. Of course Pepsi was loose on the 10 acres, so he could run off & disappear. That really upset Chili, when he'd run from one end of the pens to the other & somewhere in the chase, Pepsi had peeled off & went someplace else. He'd disappear like that & then come running back at top speed, which of course got Chili going again. I love to watch them run & play.
