Why he can't have nice things

There has been some rearranging of the turnout situations, and it's come to our attention that Soonie doesn't Share Well With Others.

Two additional geldings got introduced to his field (in addition to the other gelding he's currently with and his mare), and Soon spent about 30 minutes chasing the other two geldings around the field and trying to kill them, apparently. He takes his Thoroughbred threesome very seriously, I guess.

Soon's wild stallion stunt double
And there was some of this bullshit too

So, Soon has lost his mare privileges.  They split everyone up into mare turnouts and gelding turnouts.  But then Soon decided he might like to try jumping out of his field to get to the mare and was sizing up the fence line...

How Soon thought it was going to go
How the barn staff felt that was going to go they yanked him out of there before he had the opportunity to try.  They banished him back to the front field with the Four Ponies of the Apocalypse, who proceeded to chase him and kick his ass, and he finally accepted his new position in life.  Yep, Big Bad Stallion got his ass handed to him by a couple of little POAs, and he spent his time on the opposite side of the field from them.  I'm headed to the barn to see how his solo night turnout went...BM is hoping after some time alone he can settle back into the gelding group and just be normal again.  Because he has always been the most neutral, non-shit-giving turnout companion I have ever seen, until his love affair with Maresy. 

I hate love.  I hate spring breeding season and the stupid thing it makes horses do.  We don't need horses getting possessive and injuring other horses, and I sure as shit don't need him attached to anyone, so here's hoping the issue is done and we can all move on with our lives.  

This is why you can't have nice things
