Last evening, much to Charms disgust, the saddles and bridles reappeared and this time all three horses, Lady Charm and Roman took to the trail. It was the first time Lady had had the two boys all to herself and the first time the two boys had had to share the attention with another testosterone charged gelding. First sign that Roman was not prepared to share the girl was a very swishy black tail and ears flat back on his head. A group photo…with Charm, I don’t think so!!! A little bit of jostling for prime position…next to Lady’s tail…or anywhere in the hormonal zone but eventually some kind of order was established. Despite a car that was apparently unaware or didn’t care that horses were here before cars and a riding lawn mower spluttered into life as we passed, our new riders and their frisky mounts all enjoyed the ride and returned to the barn happily smiling ..as usual. An impromptu horse riding “lesson” was held in the arena as the sun began to set. Derek and Quatre did a great job of restraining two horses who clearly don’t like each other much and hate work even more. Holly under Greg’s watchful eyes took Lady out onto the farm road and took Lady into a brisk trot…our feeling is that young Holly is looking for a bit more action..soon Holly, soon. Well done A team we are so glad you are here!
Our young chickens are beginning to lay and perfect, tiny eggs are being discovered in the nest boxes, the new feathered moms are more than a little reluctant to part with them and I can see that we are going to be having some harsh words in the hen house !
Thanks all the moms and Mum J for your lovely comments, we really appreciate your input. Timed out again, take care, keep safe, M
