At this point I decided to go pick up Tolo since Tarra and I were also moving him to his new home today. Everything went smoothly with that and I think he found a great new owner.
I got back home around 5pm and Emi and Roz were just hanging out happily in the paddock. I decided to turn them out for an hour or so before bringing them in for dinner. It got a little bit interesting from here.
They ran around and everything seemed to be going okay until Roz decided to start chasing Emi around.
Emi was sandwiched between Roz and the fence when he pinned his ears, and bared his teeth at her! She ended up running in the fence a little bit and skinned a spot on her flank. At this point I was trying to catch them, but good luck catching two running horses! They were moving away from the barn but Roz cut Emi off and turned her back towards the fence (and barn). Luckily at that moment he slipped and fell hard onto his side, then flipped over to the other side before getting up. Emi had continued to trot up the fence line so we opened the paddock gate and she trotted right in to us.
I was happy to have them separated! My mom grabbed an apple for Emi and I went out in the field to catch Roz who had gotten up and continued to run around. Once I got him, I brought him back in to the paddock as well and held him for a bit while I checked Emi out. She didn't really seem any worse for the wear and he was totally fine with her when we let him go. The whole thing happened in less than 5 minutes but it's 5 minutes I would prefer to not repeat! Unfortunately he's so just big and fast compared to her. Their turn out situation is definitely going to need to be managed for a while.
Overall, I've been super impressed with how well she has settled in. She's such a good baby!
