Firstly, a huge thank you for all your messages of concern and kind wishes. They are hugely appreciated and I am sure Indy et al felt the wave of love and affection as they sailed south.
I received a lovely email from their new owner and I thought I would share it – “All arrived safely and they’re wonderful. They’re exactly as I had hoped and I love them already. Indy is absolutely magnificent …… Hammie’s a wee star and the girls are fabulous.”
So, what next? Well life doesn’t stand still at Thordale. We still have 16 horses and ponies loafing around.
Fivla and Anderwoo are on loan with a family and are happily teaching their little girls how to ride.
Charlie has a new job. He is a Handsome Prince now.
Esja has fallen in love with him and they spend hours playing together. She follows him everywhere.
Esja is 3 years old but will not be started this year. I don’t think her head is in the right place. She is still a a very friendly large baby.
Hetja is hopefully pregnant or fat! I am hoping for pregnant. She is not ridden now – I think she would be uncomfortable and it would not do her any favours.
Hetja and Fákur are a couple. He is enjoying semi-retirement and escort duty.
Raw Deal (Delia), Lyra and Vitamin are together in a huge field. Delia is ok (ish) but we will see….. (sucks teeth). Zoot is staying there too.
The Minions are happy with my herd of Icelandics – Haakon, Iacs, Taktur & Klængur (plus Bjørn’s horse, Kappi).
Next year, God-willing, we will have a new foal. So something different for us. A new path to tread (though I am still rather numb after yesterday).
