I found these three boys standing together looking rather gorgeous.
Almost gorgeous! There is always one. Thank you Klaengur.
Hjalti is wintering well. He is such a cool little dude. The spit of his mother.
However, the first cousins, Haakon and Iacs, have aged a lot this winter.
I found a huge mass of grey fur under Iacs’ silly-frilly. I was shocked when I saw it. I did not expect to see so much so quickly. He is only 23 years young. Haakon is a year older and has no grey hairs.
So, yesterday, I gave in and put a rug on Haakon who is looking too thin for my liking. I think that last cold spell, when I had flu, really got to him.
In his youth, Haakon would have had a hissy fit if he saw or went near a rug. He appears to have grown out of this behaviour and is happy to accept this new fashion.
As Efstur’s rug (Delia’s ex) was not fitting very well, I bought him a new one.
By the time I had decided it was too small, I couldn’t send it back. So I have told myself that it will do for one of the yearlings, if needed, next winter and I have ordered the next size up. I can only blame my own stupidity.
Anyway, as both horses were happy to have a go at wrecking each other’s rug, I shouted at them and felt much better!
