Today Pedro tipped the scales in the other direction.
He made it clear almost immediately that he wasn't going to put up with any nonsense.
Then he clamped onto Scout's throat and wouldn't let go.
All the while he was making horrible donkey noises.
It kinda scared me. I turned around to grab something
to whack Pedro with, but before I had to do that Scout broke free.
He's missing some hair but there was no blood.
Pedro ran him around the pasture while I considered what to do.
It is slick as heck out there, so I decided to catch Scout and move him back in with his mom.
Which turned out to be a good decision because Bella was thinking about breaking through the fence to
kick some burro butt. She doesn't put up with that kind of crap, especially when her colt is involved.
So now I'll just keep them separate for the time being I guess. I'll try them together again sometime when the ground is more solid. I really would like for them to live together and chase each other around, just not too much. And I'm hoping Scout will be smart enough to keep his tender throat out of reach in the future. I'm sure that with time they'd work it out.
