Haakon needs the Spring grass.
He told me this and I agreed.
He has still not put on the weight since his battle with Taktur and I still feel awful. My guilt can last a long time.
Iacs agrees too. Note the spectacular Silly Frilly.
We have the farrier next week and Klængur will have a full set of shoes put on. I am hopeful we can then get back into work. Klængur’s had a nice long rest. His back is sorted and his hoof is mended. Onwards, please with no spooking or other silly shenanigans.
Meanwhile, in the next door field, father and son are living happily together.
The wild primroses are wonderful – at their very best this time of year.
And the marsh marigolds (or “blugga” as it’s known in Shetland dialect) are just coming out. A Shetland spring in full swing now.
I left everyone to their job – eating. They take it very seriously. We have come through a hard winter and it has taken its toll.
But we have bluebells in the garden too!
