|He's still a little crazy-eyed, but he's settling in.|
Last fall I had the pleasure of meeting Casey and her (now) 3-year-old daughter Audrey when they leased Tanner at Lupine Farm.
|Tanner absolutely loves Audrey|
Jax is an 8-year-old Morgan (possibly Morgan-Arabian) who was rescued by Animal Rescue Unit from a 15x15 shipping container along with a 30-year-old mare. Casey and Audrey went to see him, and it was love at first sight.
Yesterday we went to pick him up, thinking since he is such a sweet boy it'd be a piece of cake. Two hours later, we fiiiinally got him on the trailer and were back on the road. Not the most auspicious start, but he deserves a break because of his history of being in confined spaces.
So far so good! Tanner is taking his home court advantage, nipping at Jax's blanket and picking at him like an older sibling. However, as soon as Jax figures out Tanner is a big wuss, I think he'll move up to top position. I'm hoping they become BFFs, like Tanner and Remmie from Lupine Farm....Tanner started as slightly above him in the pecking order when Remmie arrived, but when Remmie got more comfortable he relegated Tanner back to the bottom. That didn't mean he picked on Tanner; those two were peas in a pod together. Here's hoping Jax and Tanner discover they're bosom buddies too!
Another wintry day here. As pretty as it is, I am definitely ready for spring.
