Update: Momma & Baby
Lately, Estrella and Sunny have been enjoying a few hours in the pasture every day (as long as the weather is nice). We are increasing their time gradually from 1 hour to 2 hours to 3 hours (etc), until they can spend the time between breakfast and dinner out in the pasture.
Estrella (pronounced "e-stray-ya") is all business out there -- she rarely lifts her head from the delicious grass. A classic "binge eater" (which is why we are re-introducing her to pasture so gradually). Sunny grazes too, but in between nibbles of grass, she runs, jumps, skips, gallops, kicks up her heels, and has a grand time. It's adorable to watch her "play".
Momma and baby are so thrilled to have these few hours in the pasture every day -- FREEDOM -- room to roam -- delicious grass to eat. What could be better ?!?!?
