Me (on the phone to Daisy): So how are Delia and Lyra getting on?
Me: Is Delia ok? (I am always worrying about her and thinking this will be her last summer).
Me: Is she managing to eat ok and keeping on the weight? (still worrying).
Daisy: Oh yes! She nearly flattens me for her carrot when I visit every day!
Me: And Lyra? How is she?
Daisy: She’s fine
Daisy: Looking very good. Perhaps a bit too good.
Daisy: And Lyra is still very friendly, which is lovely (some summers Lyra has been known to turn a tad feral which is just plain boring).
The Shetland girls are both in Sandness, four miles down the road, happily sharing a field with two of Bjørn’s Shetland ponies. They are all checked regularly.
Meanwhile, back at Thordale, ‘Ster has been busy making friends with Dreki.
From the photo, I think Lilja wants nothing to do with sheep. She is practising being pretty.
Soon, I will be home and can get to know my foals who are growing like weeds.
Today, I met this little deer in a neighbour’s garden.
A memorable moment (I would love a pet deer……… though I think Lambie et al would have the most monumental tantrum!)
