Fences only seem to get in the way when you want to meet new friends.
Little Albie is very keen to meet everyone.
Fivla has become a good second step-mother. She is slightly more of a motherly friend to Albie than Tor who sees him as her meal ticket she should look after.
Today was the day we have all been waiting for.
And so we let Silver, Storm and Tiddles into the small field containing Tor, Fivla and Albie. Waffle joined them later. He was busy on the horizon being mysterious.
Silver was sensible – he introduced himself to Tor first and then was allowed to make friends with Albie.
Little Albie was keen to meet everyone new.
He tried to play “Nibble” with Storm who put his ears back.
With that, Tor waded in and gave him both barrels. No one can speak to her Albie like that.
It was all very interesting to watch. So much communication and such good behaviour.
Albie was intrigued with Tiddles. He had met him very briefly (but probably didn’t remember) when he first arrived at Thordale.
I think this could be the beginning of a good friendship.
I hope so.
Tentative little games.
Lots of foal mouthing (as it should be).
And Silver discovered Albie’s rump makes a good chin rest!
Well that was easy. Albie is now a fully paid up Minion.
