Over at Leradale, I am holding onto Hetja while Daisy feeds the foals and Brá.
Afterwards, Hetja gets to “wash up” the empty buckets plus a large carrot for her patience and for not being pushy. She is a good girl and perhaps realises that she does not need extra food.
When the foals have finished, Daisy holds Brá’s bucket for her because they think they should now have Mum’s food too. It would not be good for the little ones. They have Mare and Foal mix while Brá has a mixture of conditioning cubes, sugar beet and mix. Different food for different needs.
Afterwards, I went down to see the Minions, to give them their statutory half carrot and to remind them it has been four years.
Four years since this blog post when the three original Minions came into my life.

Of course, he instantly gave me his cheeky grin – probably worried the wind might change and he would be stuck looking pathetic!
Four eventful years! These little boys have totally changed my life and me, inside – in a good way, I hope. Seeing the Minions today, and giving them their daily hug/carrot is the best therapy after the past few days.
(Oh, Storm, why can’t you just be nice like everyone else? Poor Waffle.)
