GOOD FENCE - Horses at Blessingbourne House (Part 11)

Last week I introduced you to Cowboy, the 2 years old horse with the halter on and Lola who is a one year old.  Colleen has only purchased them recently.  They are the best of friends; in fact the man who sold them to her would not sell one without the other.   There is a VIDEO of them at the end of the post.



When we moved them from the top paddock to this paddock, I was able to see them more often and as they are still settling into their new home, they were a bit shy at first with me however by the end of my 3 days when they saw me coming, they always came over to be stroked.











However on my last morning, I found Cowboy lying down and he would not get up.  Now I am not used to horses and their behaviour so I was a bit worried that he was sick so I went and got Nick, Colleen’s husband but he was able to tell me Cowboy was trying to sleep!!  I was relieved and went home happy.




Now for the short video. CLICK HERE if it does not appear below.



I fell in love with these 2 horses and I hope you enjoyed seeing them.

  30. Hi Margaret,
    Awesome horses and fences.
    The speed limit sounds perfect for the countryside (I say even perfect for many city neighborhoods).
    Have a Wonderful Day!
    Peace :)

  34. Beautiful horses. Thanks for the video. Shame about the noisy plane but it did let us see them run. They do appear to be really good mates.
