So, Scout made it from Lida's amazing farm to my parents' place lovely in Pike Road, and finally back to our little place recently, so the happy trio is back together. Except, well, maybe not so happy....
Scout decided to lay claim to miss Filly, so he tried to run sweet little Tonto off one of the terraces to make a point the other day.
 
Now Scout and Filly are living in their own paddock, with their 2 14x14 stalls and little Tonto (the angel pony) resides in his new digs (thank you, honey).  They were all ready for Hurricane Irma to arrive.
 
Filly and Scout:
 


Tonto hiding behind the oak tree fro protection from mean old Scout:


Tonto's new run-in on the back side of the barn:


The meanies:


New run-in before stall mat and shavings were added:
In case you were wondering, it measures 8 ft wide by 12 ft long. Tonto is a whopping 11.2 hands, so it fits him perfectly.




Sweet little Tonto:


Yes, we used the partially covered chains from the old swing-set to up-cycle into a temporary stall guard:



Scout loves to put his front feet on the concrete. I guess it makes him feel taller:


Tonto peaking into the barn. (Brian's brilliant idea to cut a doorway into the main barn like this...)



Lucy approves of Tonto's new run-in:


Chloe checking out Tonto's new room:


Hurricane Irma-ready run-in stall with rubber stall mat and shavings (yay!!!)



We lucked out with Hurricane Irma. She decided to give us a break and headed east. We had some minor wind and much needed rain. I'll post more photos of our barn all shut up and prepared for the big Irma! :)
Until then....Happy Riding!!!
