Gypsy and Gina have been with us for eight days (remember we picked them up last Friday from Yell on behalf of the SSPCA?)
Yesterday, the vet came to microchip them, look at their teeth (rasping was necessary) and generally give them an “MOT and service”.
It all went fine and I let the girls stay around the house afterwards to enjoy the brief winter sun on their backs.
As I write this, I am not sure of Gina and Gypsy’s future. I am only looking after them on behalf of the SSPCA while the important decisions are being made. They are not Thordale ponies.
They are easy enough to have around. Nice girls. Gina is fed twice a day and mostly has a rug on (if weather dictates) while Gypsy gets silage. Every day I work on her catching and leading skills. It didn’t take long for her to learn and now I can go up to her in the field with a carrot and put on a headcollar so that is all positive.
We will see what happens. I am not making the decisions.
