Jo’s been shopping. He arrived today off this morning’s boat. As he is a foreigner, he is in sort-of quarantine with Delia and Minnie. The others are keen to meet him but realise that he is very shell-shocked.
So, ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to Tór frá Velli II. He is my Taktur’s little half-brother. They share the same Mum, the gorgeous Tíbrá frá Hafnarfirði and his Sire is Flipi frá Litlu-Sandvík.
Poor Tór has run up light after the long trip south and was very upset coming off the ferry, poor love.
Tór is 3 years old and has been lightly backed. He has all winter to relax and get to know Jo. There is no rush for anything and it will all be done at his own speed. The trip was stressful and draining especially if a horse is travelling on his own – Flight, 2 boats, endless lorries – it all takes its toll.
Minnie and Delia will look after him as well. He can relax and eat.
Minnie is quite taken with Tór and thinks he is very handsome! There is lots of gazing dreamily in his direction.
We will give him time.
He has all the time he needs now in his new home with Jo.
So welcome to Tór, Jo’s new horse. I wonder what Taktur will think to meet his half-bro. They have never met before.
