Foal Friday: Baller

The babies got introduced to the ball for the first time this past week, and honestly I think Ollie’s name really should have been Skee-Lo (“I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her”… there’s your very obscure 90’s reference for the week). It should be of absolutely no surprise to anyone that he took to the ball immediately and absolutely loves it. He might be the littlest in height, but he’s definitely got a huge personality.

The babies always get to see the ball outside of the fence first, so it’s not as scary. Naturally Ollie, being the super curious and mischievous one, was the first to come over and investigate. Once they all got to see that it was there and they didn’t care about it, the ball got chucked into the pasture.

The other babies were much less impressed with the ball. It took a little while for Remi’s mom to let him go check it out, and when he finally did he wasn’t quite sure what he was supposed to do with it.

Oakley was interested in it a little, and gave a half-hearted attempt.

If you want to see some video, you’re in luck. This event was well documented.

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope your weekend is as fun as Ollie’s is shaping up to be.

      1. This is 100% true. I could see Hunter and Ollie getting into so much mischief together. Wild man toddler and wild baby pony. It would be years of endless entertainment.

  1. How’s Ellie doing?! Is she still pretty massive for her age or was it just a “big at birth” but then calm down kind of thing?
