Doing the rounds today so we checked up on the last remaining Thordale Shetland pony girls – Lyra, Vitamin and Delia. Two old Shetland pony mares and one young filly.
Obviously Lyra made her bee-line for her one love, Daisy.
I think it because they both have the same hair style and can relate to this.
I left them to bond. It is what they both do best – their Mutual Appreciation Society.
Both of them are a pair of soppy dates. Lyra doesn’t care about anyone else (human) like she does Daisy. She always has done, even as a foal. The rest of us never had a look in.
Mother and daughter are not very alike but still very close. I think they always will be. Vitamin will have no more foals and Lyra was the one she waited for all these years. Two dead foals in succession and then Lyra, makes her extra special and wanted. I would hate to split them up or split up Lyra from Daisy.
Meanwhile, Lambie has taken up residence under a table in the sitting room. He is loving his daily walks and is a fully paid-up member of our family, despite what my OH says.
