Junior has had a rotating set of turnout buddies since we began turning him out last spring. He started with Max, Lefty, and Zippy. Lefty went to another barn early last spring. Then Vienna, the little Arab mare started going out with them and Max went on stall rest and is still not being turned out with the others. (He and Junior get to go out together on weekends, though, when Max's mom is there to watch.) Then we sadly lost poor Vienna. Recently, a new addition came into the group, a little Welsh Pony gelding named Charlie. or "Chuckles" as I've heard some people call him. I have a soft spot for Welshies and it seems Junior does, too. I've not witnessed it yet, but I've had many reports of the two geldings playing halter tag and play fighting. It seems Junior finally found someone who will play rough with him. We're constantly finding little scrapes on him, but his attitude is GREAT. He's having so much fun! Here's Charlie and then a few pictures (taken by one of Max's girls) of Junior messing with him. I was told JR dragged him backwards by the tail flap..... sure hope that's a strong blanket!
