I am exhausted.

Today I moved 5 ponies/horses to their new homes or fields.

Esja has gone to her new home.

Klaengur, Iacs, Waffle and Silver are now in a hill park with less grass in Sandness.  When Silver and Waffle asked who would kiss them nunight, I felt awful, though slightly cheered when they galloped off into their 30 acre field to find Klaengur and Iacs.

I am exhausted.  I have run out of steam now and my back hurts.  Some loaded better than others and I have driven here there and everywhere distributing Thordale horse and ponies  into various parks.  There is an impending gale tomorrow so I have also put away any potential aerodynamic objects and/or missiles.

So, to make up for the lack of photos of my lot being relocated, here are some photos of this year’s foals from Bergli Stud. I took them yesterday.  It was love at first sight.

I made friends with these little ponies yesterday and even got to kiss noseys if I avoided eye contact, rounded my shoulders and made ho-ho-ho noises. Ooof, the deliciousness of them.

There is nothing better than being investigated by a little Shetland pony foal.

Night night xx

    Bebe whiskas! So so darling. A hard day for you as you continue to give all your animals the best care. Rest well!

    Are you going to shear the sheepies? I also remember you had combed/plucked the foal’s downy coat last year. I’d be interested in trying to spin any of those fibers.

    Best wishes to Esja. May she find her new home as loving as yours.

    How temporary is the relocation of the other four?

      Very temporary, depending on weight loss! Iacs is fatty fat fat as is Klaengur. The two minions less so but I was warned that Waffle would get laminitis if he didn’t go on a diet this spring. Laminitis is my greatest fear for horses and ponies.

      I would think they will be there one month at least, two tops. See how it goes. Nothing is written in stone.
