The rugs for the two bigger Minions, Waffle and Silver, arrived yesterday. They tried them on and then refused to take them off!
They look like soldiers or regimental mascots in their smart, clean (ish) uniform.
(though Silver quickly rolled to personalise his rug).
There is a cold wind outside and these hardy Shetland ponies refused point-blank to go outside. They all wanted a “duvet day”.
Fair enough, I thought. They had been outside all night and it wasn’t particularly pleasant so I distributed piles of silage and left them to it.
(I did pop my head around the door this afternoon to see them all asleep – awww!)
The two “hardy” Shetland sheep decided to spend their day in their second-best shed. I caught them eating the hen food!
And as for The Great Outdoors? Well you can keep it. OH moved a quantity of mud off the track to the field which, although is better to walk through, depresses me every time I see it.
The Icelandic horses have taken up permanent residence on Silage Bale Island. They refuse to move even though there is hill grazing not very far away that they could easily reach. They don’t have to stand on the bale 24/7. No, honestly, they don’t.
