jasper's new digs!

Here's Jasper in the front section of the new horse paddock. It's about a 1/4 acre of hillside, brush, woods, and open grass like you see here. There's a main gate leading out, and a smaller gate leading to the sheep sections. I did a sweep of all the old wood and metal and wire and checked for holes before letting Jasper in to try it out. He's a footsure pony, and he has been loving the new grazing! Soon Merlin and him will both be at the gate waiting for fly spray and cookies.

P.S. Got a used driving harness on eBay for a steal, and Patty found a red cart at an auction with shafts long enough for Merlin! It just needs new bike wheels and a scrape and paint job! It was made my a local farmer for his cart horse, farm style, out of old bike frames and wood. I'll post a picture soon! Before you know it I'll be driving up and down this mountain. None of the neighbors will be shocked, but should be happy!

Jasper looks fantastic, so much better than when you took him on.
