Sorry, I didn't mean to worry anyone. It was exciting when I turned everyone out together, but no major injuries. I'm sure they're sore though. Bella and Cisco went at it at least four times. I was pretty sure that would happen. They're just going to have to work it out. It was hard to watch though. I kept picturing broken legs, gashes, and hematomas. Nothing of that sort, praise be.
I turned off the camera in the middle of this one, had to check to make sure Cisco was okay. Apparently I can't take video and look at the same time. Check out Tonka's nifty evasive maneuver in the second one. And it's interesting to watch how the herd moves, who goes where and does what. (You probably want to turn off your volume. My dog loves to bark when the horses are acting up.)
Seems to me, watching how these battles played out, Bella went in and started it, then was first to leave. Cisco didn't seem to be the direct instigator but was quite happy to put the smackdown on her. He got along fine with the others. Tonka was told to back off a bit but they did share some hay. Scout and Cisco seem to be good buddies. Soxy and Cisco have been living together so they're fine. You can see she's trying to stay out of the way, poor old girl.
I was going to load another short video and some pictures, but I think I'll save them for tomorrow. I'd imagine these picture and video-heavy posts load slowly for people with slower connections.
But I will leave you with a picture that shows Tonka didn't manage to stay completely out of the way.
