Bits and Pieces

This morning I came upon a heap of ponies.  “Heap” being the “offishul” collective term for a herd of different ages, breeds and sizes.  Now you know.  Please educate the ignorant.

I was particularly taken by little Waffle’s happy snoring smile.  He was dead to the world and I am sure everyone else was not going to wake him.  It can be like waking the Kraken on occasions. I love his fat little tumbly (awwww).

I was in the field catching Klængur and Haakon to ride later.

Anywho, Fiona drove up with Hreyfing, her mare that she is re-training.  I offered advice and tried to help, based on what I have learned working with Klængur.  I think Fiona and Hreyfing achieved great things.

I am not a teacher but I do realise the benefits of calming down a horse and relaxation.

Meanwhile, an update on everyone else.

BeAnne caught a rabbit – well, a rabbit committed harakiri.   This is her filthy look if anyone attempts to steal it. Loki knows better.

BeAnne – post-rabbit.  Now for some very nasty après-odours.

Loki has come on leaps and bounds and is our model citizen.

He loves playing and is happy to offer anyone a selection of his toys in the hope they will play tug-o-war with him.

Jack is, well, Jack.  Still rattling on deaf and blind but content in his own little world.  His tummy clock is directly synced with Greenwich and supper/breakfast time is not a minute late.  Ever.

And Wussums remains Wussumly.  He loathes everyone canine and has a nocturnal lifestyle, i.e. when Loki is asleep.  This is the compromise reached.

    Love your dogs and horses and since seeing them in the summer it has spurred me on to get a dog again. Breagha our spaniel cross 8 week old puppy has just joined our family. So happy to have a canine pal again. Loki has such beautiful eyes!

    I have a shetland like Waffle….Fergus known to sleep at any angle, any time of day………………….his paddock companion Frazer is not far behind. you could drive a truck next to him and he would not move a muscle.
