    I was painting inside the run today, had the chickens free ranging and the pony grazing. Something excited the pony and he ran in front of the coop ruffling the girls' feathers. The pony came back around and the rooster took off after him. it was the funniest sight seeing that rooster chasing after the pony. He ran after the pony until the pony was back in his pen. It's a distance of 50+ yards, but that roo was determined to protect his girls. [​IMG] I have been toying with the idea of finding the roo a new home because he's been getting meaner with every passing day...I have to hand it to him though, he does take good care of his ladies [​IMG]
