I meant to upload these snippets of video that I took on Sunday. Please forgive the bad camera work, but I was trying to play football with Apollo, and film at the same time. I like the foals to come in contact with lots of different objects so that they have no fear. We play football with them to get them used to having something whizzing pass them, and that it rolls on the floor but won't do them any harm..

Just For Kate...

Kate asked very nicely on the last post, if I could pull Viscounts Forelock aside so that she could see his face..
Well just for you Kate, your wish is my command. Just taken these pictures of my handsome boy for you..

Birchwood Viscount...

Took these photo's of Viscount this afternoon.
I'm totally in Love with him. He has such a wonderful temperament.
I'll be using him this year with a couple of the Mares....

The Shetland Pony Stud Book Society..

I had my membership card through from The Shetland Pony Stud-Book Society yesterday.
Members now have on-line access to the Society Stud Book and Registry on-line.
What a brilliant idea. I spent some time yesterday going through all my Ponies records. You can look up member details, animal details, pedigrees and progeny lists.
Hopefully, later on in the year they are going to add all the show results to the database as well. They've also said that in the future they may also move onto on-line applications to register foals, transfers, death and do show and sale entries.
Makes every one's life so much easier. I can now print of official Pedigree Certificates for any of the Foals which we sell, instead of writing them out by hand.

Just a couple more pictures taken today..

Snow's Still Falling...

We've had Snow all through the night and it's blowing a Blizzard at the moment.
The Ponies took shelter in the Barn last night, but we still had to remove snow from a couple of the little ones tails, as they were dragging snowballs, around this morning behind them..
Lucky for us the water butts haven't frozen yet, just gone like slush puppy. But the outside taps are all frozen. As we knew the snow was coming, we filled up loads of containers with water yesterday and put them inside and they haven't frozen.
