Introducing Huey!

Saturday night I flew back from WA.  Sunday, Vicki and I hooked up the horse trailer and hopped in the truck.  8 hours later we arrived at our hotel just outside Baltimore.  First thing Monday morning, we went to Hedgehog Hollow Farm, which specializes in breeding Dartmoor ponies.  Anna had been emailing with the farm and Vicki was along to specifically test ride Huey (she even got to miss a day of school).  Everything seemed fine, so we loaded up and headed back home.

Huey is a 12 year old Dartmoor gelding.  He is just over 11 hands and makes a great addition to our herd.  He is barefoot and has never had shoes.  He also lived outside in pasture in a herd setup.  The kids are very excited to have another pony.  Today, Huey got to know Precious and Devil.  Devil wasn’t too happy about sharing Precious’ attention with another boy.  Since Huey has never been contained in electric fence, we spent the day monitoring things and fixing fences.  Now if the rain will stop, the kids will get to ride him.
