It was cold for the trip so we blanketed them & put fly masks on them, so the wind wouldn't blow in their eyes. Checked them along the way to make sure they weren't too warm, & they weren't.
Got there, & they were both ready to get out as soon as possible. I might add they both hopped in the trailer like they were going on a fun adventure in the morning, which was a surprise. Always before Quilla has been, well to put it politely "reluctant" to go in a trailer. I also don't remember Gus, hopping in like a bunny either, but they both did real good. Guess by the time they got there the adventure had worn off. That's OK, Claire, David & Shirley were all waiting to greet them.
You can see how excited they were to visit with new people. The first thing they found was a patch of bermuda grass, & proceeded to eat as much as they could find. There might be enough to get them busy for a couple of days, after that they'll have to rely on hay. But in the meantime they are really enjoying the green grass.
Claire e-mailed this picture to me last night. Looks like she finally managed to get her hands on Gus......!!! He loves to be hugged, so I'm sure he was enjoying it. I see Quilla in the background, guess he found a few more sprigs of grass. He actually likes to have his face hugged too, as Claire will find out.
