As you know, I am worried about my little boy Storm. He is not as rotund or mobile as the others so I brought him indoors to give him extra food and love.
Jo and Fi had brought Tór and Hreyfing over for some practice in the school. This was Jo’s first real go at riding Tór since he had arrived from Iceland a few months’ back. Everything was very laid back.
Storm was wandering around too adding to the relaxed ambience in the school. He is always rather intrigued by this riding thing and is not sure if it will catch on.
When Tór stopped, Storm was keen to say what ho!
Storm is not feared by other horses. He is not an aggressive or confrontational pony and likes to make friends rather than enemies.
And then he discovered Jo’s coat hanging up. In the pockets he could smell horse nuts and made it his mission to get them.
There was even a small temper tantrum (stamping his hoof) because the food was far down in the pocket and he couldn’t reach it.
Luckily Jo distributed the contents of her pockets once she had dismounted and untacked Tór.
When Fi had finished her work on Hreyfing, Storm went racing up to chat up this new girl. I have never seen him with a mare or filly but he thought they were rather nice!
Hreyfing was distinctly unimpressed.
