Her Chosen One

A brief respite today, weatherwise, so Daisy and I went to check on Lyra.

Lyra is living 4 miles down the road in a huge field with two other fillies her own age.  Since Daisy’s departure to Norway in August, I haven’t actually managed to get very near Lyra.


For a small second I thought Lyra would not talk to Daisy either.


She managed to be aloof for almost a whole minute, successfully making Daisy feel like a neglectful owner.


But Daisy knows how Lyra thinks.


And very soon, Lyra remembered that she adored Daisy above all else.

Lyra is wintering well.  She is a very nice looking filly.

She has a very beautiful and expressive head.


Lyra is very similar to her mother, Vitamin, to look at in many ways (though I see so much of Indy’s cheeky personality in Vitamin – now she really knows how to work the system).


So that is us for another year.  I hope you have enjoyed the Blog this year as much as I have enjoyed writing it.  Never a chore (well, hardly ever).
