Miniature Horses

Blue has lost some of his former shyness and become friendlier. He always liked attention, but only after it had begun. Now he often comes looking for it:

Remy, in contrast, is a glutton for attention and cannot get close enough. It's sometimes difficult to take a picture of him because by the time I lift up the camera, he's almost in my lap:

I fed one of the cows a bowl of grain outside the barn one morning and Blue discovered the empty bowl. He then had a bit of a temper tantrum, banging it with his hoof because it was empty:

The horses haven't spent many nights inside the barn, but there have been a few nights of freezing rain when I couldn't bear to leave the animals outdoors. And of course, they spent Tuesday and Wednesday nights in their stall because of the blizzard:

Blue, normally mild mannered, becomes quite dominant over food. Remy has to be careful when he tries to grab a mouthful of hay:

But outdoors, they're best friends:

They sometimes used to allow the calves inside the barn with them but other times chased them out:

The cows and horses get along pretty darn well now. They've all grown used to each other:

He knows he's cute:

Remy, checking me out and wondering what mischief he can get into:
