Little Efstur is wonderful.
He is learning the best expressions. This is his “serious but give me carrots” face!
He and Hjalti are the best of friends. They are very good for each other.
Hjalti is incredibly patient with Efstur but enjoys the friendship. He is having the best of winters – being with his mum and having a friend his own size. Last year it was only Minions. Fine, if small.
Brá is very happy to relinquish control…..
though Efstur is still nursing.
Hopefully, Brá and Hetja are both pregnant by Taktur. This isn’t confirmed but time will tell – either foals will appear or not.
Efstur will be weaned in March or sooner. We will see how Brá keeps the weight on this winter and how she looks. She doesn’t seem to mind having her little boy around for a quick drink.
Anyway, he soon goes off to play with his best buddy.
Even when he is playing, Efstur is stunning.
I don’t think I am biased.
Like all little boys, Hjalti and Efstur travel as one.
It is lovely watching them grow up this winter in the field that surrounds the garden and house.
I watch them playing endlessly together from my front door.
