Today has been a beautiful day. Cold and crisp here at Thordale but, surprisingly, there is very little snow/ice at Leradale, two minutes down the road! It was lovely there.
So Daisy and I went in armed with carrots and brushes.
The brushing was first and we made everyone beautiful. Manes and tails.
Daisy then went for a walk with her bag of carrots to lure everyone to the better grazing up the hill. This lot spend far too much time lurking next to the preggie ladies. Not healthy.
The majority were very happy to be lured.
The rest went the long way round, muttering.
After much debate with himself, Tiddles decided to follow via the quickest route.
Bless him! Once he had made up his mind, he was very enthusiastic.
The carrots were shared out.
Daisy even kindly waited for the old bags to arrive.
Everyone had their fair share.
Vitamin is the problem here. She just won’t leave the preggie ladies on their own. They might need her as a birthing buddy or something and so everyone has to stay too.
Anyway, it was good to get them moved and I went around taking a few snaps.
Dearest Fivla came up for a chat.
She has always been a very special pony. One of the family.
She is the most beautiful Shetland pony ever. Our fairy-tale pony.
And so we left them up in the hills to eat.
I bet by tomorrow they are back to where we found them. Annoying Hetja and Brá!
