Not all bliss...

While the boyz do have their peaceful moments...
You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours

They even watch over one another...
Pippin catches a few Zzzzz's as Merlin grazes nearby. 
It's not always sunshine & rose filled moments between the two little Napoleons!  They both want to be big man on campus & Pippin being only 4 can be an annoying, bratty little twit. Oddly enough while they have separate feed bowls & I split their morning & evening hay into three piles, they nearly always choose to eat quite peacefully from the same bowl/pile!  
Most drama that I've witnessed involves who gets to be inside or on their porch area whomever is inside will chase the one entering out, same with the porch. After a few tiffs over turf, they do chill and nap side by side and groom one another. Another cause of arguing is my presence, they both want my attention & chase one another away for scratches. Hasn't helped that we've had nonstop rain the past few days, so it's not like the three of us are in the wide open. Pippin likes to back his bum into Merlin, Merlin likes to rear & bite. One benefit is Pippins biggest lip wart is gone!!!  For now anyway. 
We all have some adjusting & adapting to do. The boyz with one another, along with their new home. I have to adjust to two horses as I've always only had just one. Though they are miniatures, their still horses!


  1. You're gonna hafta change the blog title, me thinks.

    Hobbit Horses. Or something like that.

    It's great they get along.
