I let Kappi, Haakon and Iacs stay with the Minions in the big shed. They all seemed to get on very well so I thought “why not?”
Taktur (and Klængur) joined them later. They had been down in the bottom field just standing in the intermittent snowfall and I called them up, feeling sorry for them.
I warned Taktur that if he did not behave, especially with Tiddles, I would put him straight into a stable on his own.
So, apart from a perfunctory sniff, he didn’t really notice Tiddles or consider him a manly threat.
They were all sharing their hay very happily.
(I gave Tiddles lots of little piles that he could go to if he was bullied off). He does have victim written all over him.
I think this photo describes the Minion/Icelandic horse relationship. Storm stands on the hay and Taktur (stallion) and Klængur have to eat around him. No one minds.
Luckily for Taktur Silver remembered his role in life – which is to make Taktur’s life a living hell.
He even brought Waffle in to help with a well performed two pronged attack.
And this is the sum of Taktur’s defence. He raised his back leg trying to evade Silver’s teefs. He is a very nice stallion. Lesser chaps would not have been half as nice.
Taktur did to a bit of playing with Silver who was over the moon to find someone up for a good game.
I think they have all missed their little friends.
