On Miss Firestorm's 10-week birthday we decided to see how her mom Saffron and Noelle, both mustangs out of the wild, would do sharing a pasture; the goal being to finally get the herd all together as one, all out 24/7 with both pastures to roam. The result was a disaster. Big mistake. You might have seen the still photos on the blog but only now have I risen to the occasion of getting the video edited and up. It's brutal. Mostly because Saffy simply would not give up, and Noelle kept coming. That was Round One. Clearly too early. Too soon. We now believe that Saffron had more than dominance on her mind. She was protecting her baby.
Back to the drawing board. Or to separate pastures in this case. For the next four-and-a-half months we rotated horses and pastures every day so that both Noelle and Saffy would have time with all members of the herd - except each other - and everybody would get equal time in the east and west pastures. What a logistical nightmare!
We're now up to Round Three, and they're all compressed into a five minute video cleverly entitled: Two Dominant Mustangs - Rounds 1, 2, & 3 :).
Kathleen and I believe you'll enjoy and might even get a little something out of it. Please let us know. And let me know if you pick up what's unique about the music :)
