Another Milestone

Today was another day of awful weather. I noticed that Camus was shivering so I decided to bring them all in for some of the day so they could dry off.


I think they appreciate having some time to rest from the weather, especially as they are so young.


Plus, this provides an optimum location to hug!

With my ever-faithful sidekick.


But, the real highlight of today was seeing Albie initiate playing with Camus!



It is so nice to see Abie engaging in typical Shetland pony behaviour even though he hasn’t had the easiest start in life.

He will fit in so well with our Minions.

Though, Tor does object when she is involved in these games.



But at the end of the day, she does care about her second son. He is part of her small herd and is a helpful distraction for Camus.

Wish Frances a happy birthday…this is Daisy and she doesn’t know I wrote this.
