Ok, I have a dilemma, well nine horse or pony ones really.
Storm and Taktur need to eat. They want to be with their friends, but I want to them to put on weight. Storm lost too much last winter and Taktur will be in work.
As you can see, I let Taktur and Storm into the big grass field today to see if they would eat any better as they usually just stand by the gate wanting to join their friends. It seems to be working and they are off eating.
Meanwhile, in the biggest field (20 acres?), the fatties are looking on enviously at Storm and Taktur.
With the best will in the world, I just cannot bring myself to put the heffalumps into a field with long thick green grass.
It would be wrong. They have enough where they are anyway.
The Minions are not small either.
Waffle was called obese by his breeder but I am keenly watching El Niño in the Pacific Ocean and the knock-on effect in the UK may be immense this winter – BBC News . As you already know, I am obsessed with the weather.
Tiddles is not small either.
Silver may show me his most handsome face but I will not be swayed. I would be doing none of them any favours
(Note-to-self, I must add some more string to that gate to keep it SHUT!)
