Let the Foals out into the little paddock for a good run about. Also opened the gate into the garden, so they can wander at their leisure. Took these piccies today. Their all getting their thick winter coats. Aphrodite looks like she has a beard.
Still not 100% sure, which of our Mares are in Foal for next year. Harry went round with the Stethoscope, to have a listen for a Foal Heart beat. Hoping that our dear Cravat has left us with a legacy, be wonderful if he has. Especially if one, turns out to be Silver Dun like him. His girls were Minuet, Bebe, Tinkerbell and Katie. If he did manage to do the deed, his offspring will be due from the 3rd May 2009. It was the first time this year that Kai, was used on Mares, so don't know how many he managed to get in Foal. He was running with Lemony, Evie, Chrizzy, Lil, Muffy, Jasmine & Cameo. It will be a complete surprise for everyone to see what colours he throws. His offspring are due from the 11th May 2009.
Meant to upload these photo's a few weeks ago. Took some pictures of the Horse's at the Stables, where Harry has his riding lessons. The Picture of the Black Horse, in her bridle is Ebony. She is a Cob Cross and this is the Horse that Harry rides. She has the most beautiful nature..
Carol & Tony rang on Thursday, to arrange to come over and see Archie today. They went to the local Horse Sale just to have a look at the Ponies, famous last words! That's why I'm not allowed to go. They want to get a friend for Archie. They ended up bidding on two Colt Foals and getting the winning bids. They are roughly the same age as Archie. One is called Monty and the other Gizmo. Carol sent me some pictures yesterday, so I can share them with you. I hope I've got this right Monty is the Chestnut & Gizmo is the Skewbald. So pleased that Archie will have two little friends to grow up with.
Its been beautiful here today. Took some pictures of the "Boys", filling their faces in the bottom field. Can't believe how quickly their winter coats are coming. They also look extremely fat. Warrior is beginning to resemble a Teddy Bear!..
Just been looking through all the millions of pictures on my PC, and found this one that I'd taken of Chi-Chi in January. Can you believe this Pony, laying on her back asleep, getting the Sun on her belly.
How weird is this. I had an email this evening from Julie, who attended the show on Saturday. She had googled miniature rugs on Ebay and it brought her to my blog. She started to scroll through the blog and then got a shock, as she realised that I had a picture of her and her pony on here. She rang Debbie from Tygywn Stud who gave her my email. I've since rung her and I've emailed her a couple of pictures. She kindly gave me her results so I can share them. They were:- 1st Miniature Colt Foal, Champion Miniature, Champion Foal & Reserve Supreme Champion. Well done Julie. It was really nice to talk to you this evening and I promise I'll send you some more pictures as soon as my email stops mucking about...
