Almost a week old!

Sephy is almost a week old now. Today she got to spend all day outside in the turnout. I moved Varro's fence line back about 25 feet from Aspen's fence line yesterday and Aspen was so much happier not to have to keep Sephy from Varro. I went out there tonight and Sephy was wandering around and Aspen was happily grazing! I took a few pictures and some of them turned out really cute!
She is curious and happy to come see visitors
I love her confirmation already
I love how flashy she is!
Coming to see if I brought any treats!
She is going to have spectacular movement when she grows up!
Persephone and Pepper meet for the first time. They can't really figure out what each other are!

First Day Out in the World!

Aspen and Sephy have been in their stall since Sephy was foaled. Tonight Aspen was at the end of her rope. Sephy was spinning "cookies" around the stall, bucking and rearing up on Aspen. She was being the proverbial spoiled brat, too much energy and not enough room to let it all out. I "baby proofed" the turnout and opened the gate! Here are a few pictures what followed next!

Sephy spent a solid 25 minutes running full blast around the turnout. She was giving Aspen heart attacks left and right! Aspen did NOT want Varro anywhere near Sephy and let him know it! Here is a little video of some of the shenanigans.

After about 25 minutes Aspen had enough. She trotted back into the stall, called for Sephy and the filly ran right in. I closed the gate and fed dinner. Not too shabby for her first day out in the big world! Before I turn them out tomorrow, I will have to separate Varro from their fence line to help Aspen enjoy her time out better!
