Moonpie (yes, I know we should be thinking about proper posh names, but she is still Moonpie and if you say “nummy, nummy”, she comes over!) is looking very nice.
We are still struggling over the name. I think something like Trouble or Intrepid in Icelandic would be a good as she managed to somehow get into the next door field leaving Hetja running up and down hysterical with worry.
It was a three-woman job – Floss looking after Lilja, me catching Hetja to lead her along the fence, over a stream and up a hill to the gate while Daisy pushed Moonpie along to follow. When we reached the stream, Moonpie threw herself in and struggled up the bank on the otherside. They were all successfully reunited and Hetja took Moonpie away. Funnily they haven’t been near that fence again!
This will be Moonpie’s Thordale Stud website photo when we find a good name.
Hetja adores her new little girl – she is the best Mum.
Today Floss said she hadn’t really had a chance to talk to Moonpie because Lilja gets so jealous.
So I stayed with Lilja while Floss introduced herself.
It didn’t take long.
And there is nothing better than the first kiss.
Best kiss ever in my book.
And then, being a Thordale horse, Moonpie went straight for the hat. Everyone is always obssessed with the hat.
I love these photos.
We swapped over so I could take some more photos.
Lilja needs lots of reassurance that we all still love her very much. Jealousy is a green animal and someone is very Kermit-coloured these days.
Little Moonpie is desperate to meet her sister.
Although Hetja will have none of it, she minds less.
I reckon it won’t be long before the two sisters meet up and then look out world!
