Another Horse!

A new horse arrived here at Thordale.

Yes, I am cutting back and no, I don’t need another one but…… well, you know how it is.

He is a beautiful dapple grey with luscious mane and tail….. and he arrived with a full set of fitting tack too.

He is just the right size for me and looks stunning.  We’re keeping him indoors as he is a bit sensitive to the harsh Shetland weather.

I am so pleased!

This is Phar-Lap.  Mum and Alec Kinane from Legends Rocking Horses designed him.  Mum’s perfect rocking horse and he is now living here in Shetland.

    Good one! I fell for it. Now to keep Monster, Pepper and Sheeple from chewing on his lovely tail.

    That was BRILLIANT!!! Full on mouth on floor ’till I saw the truck and rocking horse. Such a beauty and he/she won’t give any guff either…lol

    Hopefully cheap to keep, no danger of laminitis and won’t need the farrier or the vet. An all round winner!

    I grinned whenI saw his name! In Australia, country people still use the term “they have a heart as big as Phar Lap’s” to describe a particularly generous, kind, thoughtful person. Hmm…like you, Frances.
