Fly My Pretties, Fly!

One more lot of feet today. Albie’s turn.

A little star, of course.

It was windy so some good hair too.

Afterwards, I made a decision – to take the herd into the hill park where there is loads of uneaten grass. I kept Albie in his headcollar and, with me, he valiantly led the way (with Storm annoying him at every step – we had words!)

Ok, it is not green grass like Summer, but grass none the less and it will do.

And then the herd suddenly remembered there was this whole other field that they had totally forgotten and off they went, very enthusiastically.

“Fly My Pretties, Fly!”

Vitamin was a bit of a tail-end Charlie.  She wanted to go back but the others went onwards.

She came up for a bit of a chat so I told her to get going or she would lose them all.

And off she went to join them.

We shut the gate behind them. They can stay there for a bit and stop loitering with intent.

    Darling Albie! Love his wind tossed mane.
    As for the “new” field – they might be getting bored with the whole winter thing. I know I am.

    They are so lucky to have so much space to roam. So many horses and ponies are confined to tiny, uninteresting paddocks with equally uninteresting forage opportunities.
