New Pages

The weather has been a bit all or nothing today.  Sometimes it looks like Armageddon and of course we got caught in that vile shower of hail when we drove over to visit the Minions and pregnant ladies.

I am currently going through the traditional phase of wondering whether Hetja is actually pregnant.  I did this when she was about to give birth to Hjalti aand I guess the only way we will find out is if there is an extra horse in the field in a couple of months’ time!

When I asked Daisy for her expert opinion, she replied “well, if she isn’t, she is going on the mother of all diets!”  She pretty well summed up the situation.

And Brá, without a shadow of doubt, is giving birth to a heffalump.  She is professionally pregnant at me.

There is not doubt we will hear the patter of tiny hooves with her.

Meanwhile, I have spent the rest of the day redesigning this website/blog/thingy.

You may notice there are two extra pages on the top line.

Firstly, there is the Minion Story – A page devoted to how I came upon my Minions – a brief résumé, if you will, of how they ended up with me.

Secondly, a page for my new felted creations which I have called Heart❤️Felt (I love the name and thank you to the person who thought of it – truly inspired).

So, there you go.  Please read everything and inwardly digest – there will be a test later.

    LOVE the name….

    I have a question for you…..i know you talk about giving your ponies a nutritional bucket lick. The ONLY one I am able to find is $85 …… you really have to pay that or is there another answer to supplements without measuring out little cups ?

      Our licks are far cheaper than that. Mostly I give the mineral licks without the “nutritional” bit as they are just sugar lollipops otherwise. They are about £25 per lick.

    I’m so pleased you’ve told the story of how you came by The Minions. I didn’t know the background to the original three. They are so lucky to have a home with you.

    I am SO glad to hear how much better Haakon is feeling !!!!!

    And your photos of the waves on the cliffs sent me straight to thoughts of Daphne Du Maurier’ books (even thought they’re in Cornwall)…

    Frances, I love your blog every day….always so interesting. I am wondering if you could possibly make me a Heart-Felt bunny that I could put with my Easter decorations and bring out to admire every year!!! How much would it cost to have you make it and to ship it to Wisconsin USA? No rush of course….our Easter season goes on quite a long time even after Easter Day comes and goes. Thanks Frances for considering my request. No problem if you can’t do it. 🙂

      I will find out. The postage has changed today – gone up. Stuff is going to the PO today so I will get a quote.
