Apparently, the grass is growing well now. While I have been away, there has been much rain.
Mum, Hetja is happily stuffing her face. This is the one moment no one counts the calories. She is nursing her foal. She needs all the green grass she can eat.
Of course, Hetja is the best mother and spends many hours following her wayward daughter, Lilja, wherever she takes her.
Dreki, on the other hand, has a mother who would like him to go away – Brá is not a hooves-on kind of parent.
Never has been.
Not her style.
The little ones are now firmly together. They spend many hours playing.
Looking at the photos and, as you know, I am not in Shetland, I can see that Dreki’s main aim is to annoy his sister, Lilja.
But I know that Hetja is keeping a firm eye on the whole situation. She won’t let it turn into bullying.
And, anyway, Lilja will be the first to run to Mum and complain.
She is that type of little girl – that’s her style!
