Today, we’ve had some visitors over for filming and photographing.
First up was Bergli Dreamwatcher – a standard Shetland pony colt yearling (2016 – so the same age as Albie and Newt).
We filmed Dreamwatcher in the school, walking and trotting around both in-hand and free-schooled. Wow. He can move.
Dreamwatcher is Waffle’s half brother.
Afterwards, Dreamwatcher was allowed to meet the lurkers, ie Gina and Gypsy.
At present, these two ladies are currently living around the house (outside, thank you very much).
Dreamwatcher was enchanting.
He took this new environment and the ladies totally in his stride.
I must say that I love Dreamwatcher’s hair-do – wonderful.
Bless him – Dreamwatcher just got on with his job without being diverted.
Then up, was Rum – a miniature Shetland pony stallion.
Now Rum’s job was to trot.
So, of course, he wouldn’t. Eventually after expending all surplus energy by bucking his way around the school, he trotted round the school while we filmed and photographed.
Dear Rum. He is a classy boy.
When Rum went outside, my lot watched, with interest, from the privacy of their field.
After the filming, Rum was permitted a short chat.
Well, everyone was up for that!
In fact, it was Albie who was most interested.
He thought Rum was fascinating.
I wonder if Albie thinks that one day he will be like Rum.
Meanwhile, Newt didn’t give Rum a second thought!
I hardly dare mention that come the Spring and once we return from Norway, certain bits are coming off.
