So you guys remember Wesley? Well, since Tucker's turnout buddy Beejay moved home, a spot opened up in Tucker's turnout group (which was probably good because Beejay and Tucker had this adorable habit of chewing on each other that was doing wonders for Tucker's coat). So Wesley was introduced to Tucker's mini herd over the weekend.
Tucker and Mardi are the best of friends:
And obviously Tucker wanted the same from Wesley. Which meant that the few first times Wes was in the field, Tucker tried desperately and pathetically to make friends while Wesley speed-walked away from him and gave him the leery side eye.
|Hey man wait up! Where you goin? I want to come too!|
Dude what is your PROBLEM leave me ALONE.
I know how determined Tucker is about making best friends, though, as I've seen him win over even the most grumpiest of equines. So while it tugged at my heartstrings, I was not terribly surprised when I arrived this week to find this.

|Mommy look he likes me now!|
As a side note, the fact that Tucker is such a momma's boy and comes to me as soon as he sees me is very endearing but makes him extremely difficult to photograph. I have more schnoz pics that I know what to do with. As a side note on this side note, the dorsal fin is looking really strong in the above photo.
