This was the sight that greeted Flossie and I when we went tentatively over to Leradale this morning.
One big happy herd.
Phew. All the girls together with a sub-herd of little boys to the side. Just how it should be.
As we have a weather forecast for rain in the next few days, I decided to open the gates and let everyone into the grassier fields that the Icelandic horses had spent their winter in.
No one needed asking twice.
They all cantered in enthusiastically.
The field has a few fences and the herd managed to split itself up. The Minions (except for Vitamin) went one way.
While the Icelandics another.
Vitamin was by herself mostly due to her own stupidity. She decided she couldn’t remember how to get through an open gate.
I am not too worried. The herd will join up when they want to. Most of the Minions have been in this field before so know their way around, though I think it is new to Vitamin and Fivla. However, everyone was thrilled to see grass.
I am pleased the herd has settled down. That is a huge relief. I don’t have to worry.
