Muddy Monday ~ Round Two!

I hope by next week at this time, things might be back to normal. The sheet of ice at the gates and in the rim pasture is still 3 inches thick. It hasn't changed much from the photo I posted on Thursday, January 31...poor ponies are making the best of the situation though!

Mud Play ~ 1
Pierce says "Here, let me show you how to do this!"
You wouldn't know it from the background in these photos...there's hardly any snow or ice to be seen.

Smile for the camera!
I worry about the two of them playing together, so they only get turned out in the round pen when I'm there to supervise. They get to ripping in the pen and Whiskey gets to ripping on the outside of the pen. Colt likes to push Pierce like a cow and herds him around.

Yahooooooo....this is FUN!!
Yes, Pierce is way shorter in the wither than the hip...runnin' down hill...which is accentuated by the bucking!!  Crossing my fingers that he'll be even when he's grown up. I need to measure him...he's grown a lot since we got him.

Mud Play ~ 4
Pierce says "I'm bigger than you Colt!"
And Pierce LOVES to rear!

Mud Play ~ 5
Awwwww...kissy face.
By the time they're done playing, they're all huffing and puffing with steam rolling off their backs. Then I have to cool them out. But, it's good to keep them occupied for some mental and physical stimulation.

Like I said at the beginning, it's going to be a while longer before I can turn anyone out to their pastures.

Same weather as we're having here. Mud, mud and just a little more mud. Most of our ice has melted.
Thanks for visiting my blog and the comments.

I'm sure they will be happy to have that ice melt.

I'm happy our mud is covered by snow right now. That's a handsome young man there!

I have to say, that at this point I prefer the snow too the mud! They sure look fierce and spunky.

I love that you let them "let their fur down" to play. :)

We're heading into mud season now too. Pierce looks like he'll end up being a good buddy for Colt. Sure is a cutey!
