The quality is really poor but what can I do having just a phone to take movies? Anyway, Mahru solo and with her band yesterday at noon (the weather was very bad and I was collecting the herd from the pasture to allow them to dry...):
Great Pasture has two advantages over First Pasture (we used to use till now): it is more than twice the latter's size (so our herd have had to circle it in full gallop two and a half times immediately after entering there last evening - to celebrate the joy of being freed from "the box"...) - and it offers many bushes and shrubberies.
And shrubberies are of great use for horses who want to destroy flies attacking theirs skins!
There is plenty of rain this year. Our grass grows fast and the herd will move to the Great Pasture soon. As a kind of "exercise", preparing the youngsters for more variable environment - and, to help them to survive the hottest part of a day, last Saturday we have allowed them to enter a Forest Pasture for a while:
It is incredibely hot and humid Summer. Our Tekes endure this tropical weather much better than me!
