Circus and Volt
Happy Friday everyone! I was out in the park bright and early this morning and managed to locate Circus. He was, in fact, only with 2016 Colt Volt as reported to us after my post on Cloud yesterday. It appears he only had Whiskey for a short time before losing her back to Georgia’s Boy.
I know we were all excited that Circus may have a mare but after this morning, I have changed my opinion on that subject. Circus is an 18-year-old stallion with a permanent leg injury that is very noticeable when he walks. It would be challenging for him to be out there trying to protect a single mare from the 15 other bachelor boys running around the park. If one has ever spent any time with him, he appears to be a very content horse. He has a big, beautiful area of the park all to himself. He comes to the loop road from time to time to “WOW” the park visitors and messes with the band stallions. Once he is done, he returns home. He has the perfect life for an injured bachelor stallion! Many people would love to see a Circus baby in the park but for me, I want to see CIRCUS in the park for years to come. If that means seeing him with no mares so he doesn’t risk further injury, then so be it.
Also, Circus is no longer alone. He has taken a two-year-old bachelor colt under his wing who needed an experienced stallion to teach him. Who better to guide him than a stallion who has spent 18 years running wild and free in this park? Finding one another was a blessing for both horses! I am so happy Circus has a little buddy and that young Volt has one of the best teachers in the park!
Below are a few photos from my morning with Circus and Volt. I will do my best to keep you updated if anything changes. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
