Kanani and new friend, Hoku, grazing together
Kanani got to go out into the big pasture today with a mare named Hoku (which translates to Star). Thought I would have to keep him completely separate from other horses for 45-60 days but I reread the agricultural regulations and it says you must either do that OR spritz your horse everyday with fly spray. I liked that option so I am spraying him everyday. He really needs to go into the big pasture and just "be a horse" doing what horses like best to do--hang out with friends, graze a little, run a little, etc.
He flirted with Hoku quite a bit, prancing about excitedly like a big fancy stud. When she ignored him, he soon settled down to grazing and before long, they engaged in a mutual grooming session, which means that they are now best of friends.
A little mutual grooming
Kanani did his very best to eat up several acres of grass.
He did leave his new friend and come over to visit me just in case I had a carrot in my pocket for him! (Which, of course, I did.)
