Lambies and Foalios

First things first.  Mum-ewe died this morning.  I am not surprised. RIP Mum-ewe. You tried your best.

Lambie-borghini is doing ok.  OH and I settled on a compromise of the name.

Lambie is trying to walk and stand up but his inflamed joints make it difficult, if not impossible. He is on his third type of antibiotics – this time with painkillers.  I hope we start to see an improvement.


In the morning, I made him a coconut oil/comfrey poultice which he wears for an hour twice a day. on his front legs.   After I have written this blog, I will get him up for a pee, his bottle and then he can watch telly sitting on me.


Anywho, I have also been riding today on Klængur.  We went like the wind.  It was magical.  His tölt is wonderful and he listens to my every word.  He is a horse in a million.  I am so happy.

And, I saw my first Shetland pony foalio.


Very beautiful.


I miss Shetland pony foals and am sad, but realistic, that we will have none.


Mum was very happy and proud, as in look-who-I-have, as opposed to foal-proud, which means she won’t let you near her baby.


I can see I need to do some hugging, if allowed, later on.


❤ I luff foals ❤

    We still have our first Shetland pony foal who is now 24. I know what you mean about missing having the babies around x

    And so it goes, the sadness of death and the joy of new life. Lovely photos of the little foal, thanks! I’m still sending healing vibes for darling Lambie-borghini and hoping he will overcome his unfortunate beginning. Perhaps antibiotic #3 will work like a charm! (and the painkillers will surely make him more comfortable)

    Sending super healing vibes to Lambie-borghini. I hope he will get stronger soon.

    Very pretty foal! Mom looks proud about her little baby.

    Yes, RIP mama-ewe; you did the best you could with what you were given…

    I like the compromise name – well done!

    And what a BEAUTIFUL foal and mum! That must have taken everything you had not to pet it. What sweet photos of the two of them!
