The babies enjoyed being out with the other horses (even without their mommas) much better than being locked in the barn. Starting now, I'll have them in overnight, and out during the day. I put Uncle Chico in with them tonight for a little extra comfort. I'm still letting them nurse twice a day and at this point it seems more for comfort than for the milk. Here are a few pictures of Denny and Catlow running around after I let the mares out of the barn while I was switching them. Cody and Charlie did not run around...they were too busy eating hay together.
