When I first purchased Hetja from Iceland, I was told by her owner not to stable her as she would hate it. I listened to this advice.
How come, then is Hetja addicted to, and has made her own, the Minions’ Shed?
The only person allowed in is obviously Hjalti and Hetja stands guard dragon-like protecting her most precious possession. None shall pass and they are not coming in ……. ever.
Everyone left Hetja to it and Esja is integrated into the herd.
I stupidly thought Esja would be thrilled to see Hetja, as they were joined at the hip last year.
How wrong I was. They have split into separate herds now.
There are herd dynamics going on and I am not very sure what they are. Sometimes Delia and Vitamin are friends with Storm and Tiddles (the needy babies) and then they are all off together with Waffle lording it over everyone (in a very small way).
Delia is looking very well, though lame. She is on regular painkillers and ant-inflammatories and I hope we can sort this. I don’t like animal living with constant pain. She will be on box-rest for a few days to try and sort it out. I don’t want to call the vet to do The Deed. I really don’t. She looks so good (apart from the hopping).
Esja introduced herself to everyone. For every pony, she met she squealed like a pig, but that was all – no argy-bargey.
I want everyone to go out and explore and eat. Hetja and Hajlti need to leave the Minion Boudoir and stop being quite so precious.
At night, Vitamin, Delia (with painkillers) plus Storm and Tiddles came rushing in. Storm says he will still melt. I do believe him.
