We have been having a digital detox for over four hours (that would be a power cut to us oldies!).
Anywho, apologies for the delay in the blog.
It has been a day of shite – rain and more rain, so rugs on those that need them and shiver off your fat, the rest of you!
The newbies, Gina and Gypsy, are doing ok. Delia is still being a baggage so she spent the day outwith the field to give everyone some peace and quiet. While we fed Gina her hard feed (plus Albie and Newt), we put Gypsy the other side of the gate. She does not need any extra feed. I approached her with a carrot and the deal was that she could have it, if I could put a head collar on and off. After some trepidation, Gypsy agreed and that was all I wanted. Good girl. Every day, in every way, we will be doing this! Little steps. One headcollar = one carrot. Them’s the deal.
Anywho, I have been saving this for a rainy day, but I found out that…..
Storm is related to some of the other Minions!
He is Tiddles’ second cousin (that explains so much!)
Newt is his nephew – awww, bless him. Storm a role model.
Interesting fact – Lyra is Storm’s 1st cousin once removed. And she does remove. As far away as possible! Can’t you just see the family resemblance?
Fivla is Storm’s father, spouse/partner’s 1st cousin twice removed. (Storm would sell his soul for a Fair Isle jersey and some internet fame).
Yes, you guessed it, I did my family tree and used the software to see who is related to whom. Well, you would, wouldn’t you – especially on a rainy day?
So now you know. Storm is a role model. God help us all!
