Denali's Master Plan: FAIL

Over the summer, the herd that Denali lives with has changed a bit. The herd bosses Mary and Bailey were adopted, Denali's best friend moved to a training barn, and the other "lead horse" moved to the diet pasture. This left room at the top of the herd for a leader to take over.

Denali took no time in taking over.

I have to say that she is a really good mare. She's fair, she keeps everyone in line, and doesn't try to take everyones food for her own (most the time.) I would have never have guessed that she would be a good leader. Ever.

There are only 4 horses in their pasture right now. Two of them came in with injuries, which left Denali and Sunny alone to enjoy the pond/ multiple acres / and grass on their own. She was loving it. Then Denali decided to get an abscess and go lame, leaving Sunny the loan winner of "Survivor: Pasture Edition."

Poor Denali.
Survivor: Pasture Edition. Hilarious! Actually, you could probably get Survivor: Barn Edition approved and on the air...

Never a dull moment, even in the pasture!

Yeah I totally want to know if it's the right hind too. Seems to be going around blog land, although Faran has to be different because it was his left hind that was swollen.

I want Survivor: Barn Edition to go on air too. I would totally watch it lol.

I hope D's abscess heals up quickly. I think it's cool that she's lead mare. It shows how confident she is. :)

Also Denali's Master Plan isn't a fail. An abscess isn't permanent and will heal up just fine. :) 2011 should still be year of the sound horse!
