Bacardy has arrived and now after five days it already feels like he belongs here.

Here is a video of his arrival, a video of one of his first walks and a pasture video that shows how he is settling in. :)

Today I made two videos of Bacardy. In the first one, you can see how we are learning to play carefully. Now that he is discovering wild play with humans, it requires quite some brain work for him to understand that humans can't play like ponies. If it was up to him, he would kick and rear at me and run into me all the time. :funny:

The second one is a short video of Nora and Bacardy horsing around in the pasture.

The video of Bacardy and you while you were learning to play carefully makes me smile. He is so cute :love: !
And now he becomes a wild horse as you hoped and it seems as a lot of fun for him :applause: !

And Nora, I'm fascinated by the way you play with the horses as well! I wish I would've had the chance to experience this playing instead of the riding lesson I had when I started with horses. It looks so wonderful!

whats happening a lot last weeks :) so good to see that bacardy is getting accepted in the group. Although one needs some more time to get friends with a new little monster. ;) He is realy cute and learn fast.
I must laugh when i saw him play with the white plastic, i reconise our games too. They will learn so much from these games.
I see in Nora a little Romy. You are doing great! Your body language looks almost the same, ofcourse it is your language but i can see some similar movements between you. And bacardy have learned it very quick.

Thank you, Anni and Inge! :)

A short video from this morning: Body language experimentation with Bacardy. Unfortunately most of it was too dark so I had to delete it, but I think you are getting an idea of what we are doing. As soon as the ground is less slippery and we can run without destroying the grass, I will post a wild video. :)

Wow what brilliant videos! He has picked everything up so quickly and it looks to me like he feels very confident now that he knows he can read your body language....

What are the neck ropes/lead ropes that you use? They look very good :)

It's a rope for mountain climbers. The children chose it and I like it a lot, because it is very light and soft and nice to handle.

Here is a video of wild little Bacardy playing with Nelly. It was so interesting to watch them together, because Bacardy gets so hyped up with Nelly's way of moving, whereas with Nora and me he is rather calm most of the time now. So great how they adjust to every person. :f:

Exactly that what he seems to be. :funny:

So great to see both of them. Cute Cola Baby who constantly endevours to keep Nelly off from working and invite her to play with. And his patient aunt who keeps her nerve and manages this balancing act. :cheer:

Awww... :love:

Hihi, on the first pic Cola looks like a flying filly who gallops on clouds :funny: ).
On the second by contrast he looks to me like an athlete, strongly and manlikely. 8)

Thanks, Lena and Volker! :) Today the little dark gazelle went for a walk in the forest with his grandfather and me. I still cannot believe that this is the same horse that we bought in November. :f:
