This blog should have been called Spirit meets the new pony, but when I put our Toggenburg doe in the pasture adjacent the Haflinger gelding, she almost completely ignored him and focussed on the green compost bin against the goat house.
I had planned to move the compost bin before putting her in the pasture then decided to leave it believing it wouldn’t be a problem. I was wrong.
Spirit loved to leap onto the bin, but it was too slippery for her to find a secure footing. She slipped several times until she became wedge between the bin and the building. I turned off the camera to help her out, but I no sooner put the camera away and she was free, leaping off the bin and then on again.
In the end, I decided to move the bin from her small pasture to ensure she didn’t hurt herself.
You can watch Spirit’s antics on YouTube.
Standing in the background watching the show is Malagash Mayzie (miniature donkey), Artistic Renegade (Haflinger pony) and Spirit’s mate, Rascal McTaz. Taz is only half interested in what his wild girlfriend in doing. He’s busy ramming his head into the board near the post.
