As it was very windy this morning, we got the boys in for their hay, hard feed, rugs off and a rest. We left the shed door open while we went to fetch them from the field – we lead Efstur and the others all dutifully follow. In the meantime Lambie went in to the shed to see what he could see…..
And a few minutes later four horses walk in and Lambie still doesn’t get the message. So Taktur bounced and kicked him out.
Lambie was appalled. I went to find him and to check he was ok. He had gone to bed.
Oh Lambie *** sigh ***.
I checked there was nothing broken and that he was ok all over. I also fed him some TurmerAid in case anything hurt. I brought a pocketful of barley rings which he managed to choke down.
And yes, I kissed him better (but not his bottom which is where he got kicked because that would’ve been wierd! I kissed him on the top of his head because that is a nice bit.)
And I have been checking Lambie all day to see he is a) still alive or b) alright. He is a little subdued and enjoying the fuss – probably more shocked than actually hurt. Taktur pushed him out with his back legs rather than gave him both barrels.
The power of the ginger biscuit is also being put the to the test. I feel very sorry for my little Lamb. He didn’t expect to be forcefully evicted from the stable. I do hope he has learned his lesson. Never get in the way of four hungry Icelandic horses.
