Some of you may remember that in October 2017 the last of our homebred Thordale foals, Lyra, left us to go to her new home on the mainland. It was a hard decision for us to make but Lyra needed to travel and see the world rather than stay at home with a pile of Minions listening to them plan their world domination. Lyra has always been destined for great things.
So she went on the boat to Scotland to join the Drumnagair Shetland Pony Stud in North Aberdeenshire.
(Lyra’s arrival in Aberdeen back in October)
Since leaving, she has been through a hard Scottish winter.
She has seen some serious snow – we don’t really have snow in Shetland so this must’ve come as a bit of a surprise to her.
She has run with a Shetland pony stallion, Westpark Three Star.
Now confirmed pregnant, Lyra is now out and about at various Scottish agricultural shows.
Her results so far are:-
And 1st at Fettercairn Show and she went on to be Reserve Champion!
Yes, that would be Reserve Champion.
(so proud *** sniff *** our little girl is all growed up)
This is Lyra’s first year in the show ring. It is exhausting work for a mum-to-be! All that hard work being adored and looking beautiful.
So Lyra is doing very well with her new owners. They adore her and she is obviously happy doing what she does best – being beautiful and she’s going to have a foal too (oof, the excitement is almost too much!)
