We are home safe and sound. Phew. All done and hopefully not to be repeated. It was exhausting but I had my Painpod zapping quietly away in the background and that made a huge difference.
This time yesterday – Floss and I stopped our mammoth shop for a much-needed cup of tea.
Today, I spent my afternoon in the Minion field trimming feet and spending a little time with Fivla. The rest had galloped off.
I am trying to master the art of hoof rasping.
I was very kindly given an axle stand that acts as an excellent hoof stand. It made a huge difference and I rasped Albie (who happened to be in the area and very willing to “help”), Vitamin (who is an old pro) and Fivla because everyone else had suddenly run away.
I was really trying to catch Storm who decided that was never going to happen, giggled, farted and departed taking everyone with him. I couldn’t be arsed to run after him so caught the only one left – Fivla – and did her feet instead.
As a reward I fed Fivla all the carrots originally designated for everyone. Their loss. They were rude.
She was more than happy to eat their carrots.
My back was aching a bit, so I finished up and sat down with my old lady. We had a lovely natter.
A little while later, Fivla politely said good bye and left me to join her friends.
Meanwhile, on my way home, I saw that Lilja was being allowed to sleep next to her sister.
Most interesting. It won’t be long now.
