Cherie has named this little guy Brownie. He’s spunky, playful, bold and a little mischievous. Even though he’s smaller than the other kids (he’s about half the size of his brother), he is seemingly fearless. When we returned Rowan to the barn pasture Brownie (who had never seen a horse before) immediately ran up to him and began nibbling on his tail. Rowan is used to that sort of behavior from kids so nothing bad came out of it, but it reveals the kind of kid Brownie is.
Never having seen anything like him, most of the nannies don’t know what to make of him. At first they’d push him away when he came around. I worried that Brownie might be psychologically wounded by such treatment (yes, I really did), but it never seemed to bother him and over time the herd has adjusted to their little brown addition.
Brownie is a hit with visitors and I get requests for more pictures of him on facebook.
We’re enjoying having the little rascal around.
