So you know…..
These three will stay together and remain at Thordale.
I hadn’t ever reckoned on keeping them. That was not the plan. The bebbies were only meant to come here as a stop-gap (I was the one with the shed and the time) as they were too weak to go to the originally arranged hill park. Their condition score from the vet of 0 meant they needed to put on weight before we considered the next plan. They were offered to their original breeders or to find new homes, but somehow the bebbies wormed their way into my stone-cold heart and there they will stay.
I have now reached the point where I can’t imagine splitting them up as they are a very tight-knit little group of friends.
So, there we are. We are not blessed with foals this year what with Velvereta and her foal’s unexpected death and Verona not being pregnant. Maybe the bebbies were meant to be here instead to keep me busy and give me a purpose while my health is a bit crap. Little someones to make me smile.
