Chiquita

We didn’t want Takoy to be an only horse for too long. After a few weeks of searching, our friend Mikeli found a horse for us!

Chiquita is an old retired school pony from Manila Polo Club. She is very old and has medical issues. We were warned that she is sometimes grouchy around other horses. She had been confined to this stall for the longest time. The people who knew her were happy to hear that she was going to be retired in a farm!

I thought she would be very excited about having a lot of space for grazing and walking around. When she first got out of the trailer, she grabbed some clumps of grass and started walking really fast. Then she ran and even got away from Ruel!

When Takoy approached her at the paddock, she attempted to nip him and showed him her back hooves!

But it must have been all nerves and nervous energy.  After she settled in, she just stood under the roof and did not move. Maybe she was scared. Or tired. Or it’s her health issues.

Or maybe she just doesn’t know how to graze and do regular horse stuff. We are trying to encourage her to walk around and graze. It’s nice to see her outside eating grass with Takoy.
