Well, we arrived safely at our destination, Aberdeenshire.
It was a smooth crossing and the horses did very well.
I have arranged for Taktur and Kappi to have a field at night and a stable during the day, while they are in training.
Having met the locals, we left the boys alone to rest.
Shona, the organiser of this training weekend, very kindly let Flossie borrow a horse for the next few days. It was agreed that Floss should get to know her noble steed before everything starts tomorrow.
Does he remind you of anyone?
A small clue?
While Flossie got to know Ásaþór, Taktur watched intently.
He could see A Laydeee alongside Ásaþór.
The Laydee was not remotely interested with Taktur.
So he tried running up and down the fence squealing.
Nothing, not a flicker of interest, so out came the big guns – his bouffant.
How could she resist him? I have no idea, but she did.
Daisy found a friend too.
After the lesson (walk, trot, tölt, canter), Shona and Flossie went out for a short ride.
Next, untacking and gratitude.
Can you see the equine family resemblance between Ásaþór and his half brother yet?
Our very own Bimble. They share the same Sire, Indæll from Rickarton.
Peas in a pod.
