New Toys

The Minions have new toys.

I have noticed recently they are quite bored with each other and, as we were doing The Great Move of everyone, it made sense to give them what they wanted – Uncles Hammy, Andy and Charlie.

Here they are waiting, unsure of what is in the horse trailer that has just newly arrived.


We put Andy, Charlie and Hammy quickly out into the minion field.

And off they all went.


Hammy was an instant friend to the Minions.  They recognised someone of the same mentality.


Andy took charge of the herd and wandered around like an irate hippo.


He calls the shots and makes The Rules which I am sure the Minions will do their best to ignore or break.


Charlie took on the task of checking out the feed buckets (his one talent).


And Uncle Hammy had babysitting duty.

Hammy happily found his own level.

We will admit that we were all slightly trepidatious about the Minions’ meeting the new guys.  This is a first for them and a huge learning curve.

And they are so happy!


This is how they will learn their manners and be ready to go into the bigger herd once Taktur has left for his impending wedding.

    What fun! Hammy is clearly in his element. 😀 I never realised there was so much to socialising young ponies—fascinating stuff.

    What a difference in these little guys! It’s been brilliant watching their progress. I hope the Big Boys don’t let them push the boundaries too much. Hammy looks to have too much of a Minion Mentality to want to bother keeping them in line at all.

    Ah, the Minions look like they’re loving the new toys. (The Toys look like they’re enjoying their new Minions too.)
