Good news from Quest’s new home. He has settled in nicely and become star of the very big show. We must have done an ok job of our “on off” training because Jamie has been riding the big gelding,..with and without a saddle.Jamie said that all the children love him and he will never want for attention. We have no doubts that our decision to adopt out our boy was a wise one. Thank you Jamie of Thunder Rail Stables in Enumclaw..check out their website and see where he is.
Lady has apparently taken her son’s leaving home without concern. She is currently pastured with Charm the palomino “aka beauty with attitude”. There was an initial show of dominance, arrogance and ego, ( pretty much normal for Charm when there is a female around) and Lady the big Shire mare settled in to being Charm’s girl. Being in Charm’s territory means that you get to eat when he has finished eating, graze when he allows her to graze ( and not on the patch of grass he was intending to find) and on no account go in the near vicinity of the divider fence between them and awaiting suitor Roman. Apart from that it looks quite peaceful out there.
Poor Gertie is in a period of readjustment. Having watched Quest’s departure from the pasture, the clearly agitated goose is apparently attempting to bond with another equine, any will do. Charm was unimpressed by her overtures and stomped on her tail, no harm done but a few tail feathers blowing in the wind. Lady doesn’t get the connection at all and Roman chases her. Maybe the new boarding pony Zingy will adopt her, she is still staying close, sadly so is Edgar the eagle who we spotted yesterday.
Well, back to Greg’s bookwork…tax deadline is looming !
