Moving Minions

Daisy and I have been discussing this for a while.

Sensing the time was nigh, we grabbed four headcollars, caught and loaded the four older Minions and took them over to the field where the ladies have newly moved in.  Waist high grass needs eating down.

It was time for the Minions to live with Les Girls.

When we arrived, friends slowed down in their car to chat and I quickly volunteered them to help. It is always easier moving four ponies with more than two people.

The Minions were very pleased to see their new guests.

Waffle, the token “stallion” had been sorely missed, especially by Lyra who adores him.

She is still waiting for her man to grow up to be 17hh, like he promised. It is going to be a very long wait.

The girls and boys quickly reacquainted themselves with each other.

It does not take long for old friends to say hello.

A token gesture of running about and pretending to be a herd of wild ponies.

Like you do *** cough, Storm who do you think you are? Aww, bless him for trying. ****

Getting to know the new field.

And amongst all this, Delia, the old lady, ignored them all and concentrated on the important stuff – eating.

So, that’s the Minions now living with the girls for the rest of the winter.

Albie and Newt have had to stay behind in the boys field at Thordale.  As long as we have One-Nut-Newt, he cannot run with the mares.  I cannot take the risk.

    Awww, it’s lovely to see old friends reacquainted!
    (and…thinking Newt couldn’t possibly “reach” high enough to do anything serious, “where there’s a will, there’s a way” right? You’re so smart to be cautious)

    So interesting to see how (most of) the herd reunites! I too wonder whether ONNewt could actually accomplish his “mission” or if he’d just endlessly annoy the ladies. I’m sure you know best.

    Such a lovely herd of “Wild Ponies” you have romping in the field. How long will ONNewt have to wait to join the Ladies?

      We are regularly furtling through his undergrowth for the errant testicle. He has the winter. If it does not appear by next Spring (when Dreki will be gelded), then he will be taken for surgery on the table with proper inhalatory anaesthetic and we will see.
