In the mean time I was hanging on to Emi near the barn, letting her snack on a little bit of grain. Although she watched him run she wasn't at all hard to handle and was happy to eat. I grabbed a couple of carrots and Emi and I went out to the field to snag Roz. As soon as I had ahold of Roz I took Emi's halter off and let her go. She ran around some, and then settled down to grazing.
I moved back up to the barn so that I could clean their paddock. I'd only been in the barn for a few minutes before I saw our neighbors heading towards the fence. Unfortunately they had their dog with them, who was running along the fence. Emi took that as a good excuse to start running and Roz joined right in. I immediately went back out to the field, trying to head them off. They ran over to me and stopped. I think if Roz could talk he would have said "mom, really it's okay." I told them they were good ponies and went back to cleaning. They were out together for at least an hour and everything went well. They did a little more trotting around the field but it never got crazy.
