There are lovely orchids in the fields now. They are all shades of purple but I do adore the darker ones.
Meanwhile, this morning, armed with food, carrots, sunscreen, brushes, conditioning spray, etc, I went over to check the Minions.
I managed to catch each one and give them a good mane-and-tail brush. Everyone mostly, behaved. My worst was Silver (dapple grey) who didn’t want to be caught, despite taking my enticing carrot. I wouldn’t let him get away this bad behaviour and made a point of catching him, tying him up and grooming him. And then he wouldn’t leave me alone – typical!
Waffle, of course, volunteered to be brushed at every opportunity. He would. He loves being brushed (as does Albie).
Fivla was looking her very best.
Everyone’s dream fairy-tale pony.
These days I a new job – to sloosh Fivla and Vitamin’s mouths with water after eating to get rid of any surplus gap-filling debris. It will help with future dental nasties. They have only the teeth they have. There is nothing more to work with.
After slooshing, brushing, hugging and kissing, I splurged those that needed with their sunscreen, just in case the sun made an appearance.
And another orchid, just in case!
