Goytre Napoleon Aka Neo

I took these photograph's a couple of days ago of our beautiful boy Neo.
We've had Neo since he was a yearling and ran him on, with every intention of using him as one of our Stallions. He has fantastic breeding.
Last year I put him through his Voluntary Vet Assessment for his Stallion License. He passed with flying colours.
Unfortunately, Neo measured in at 90Cm's or 35 and a half inches and is now too big for us to use on our Miniature Mares.
So I've come to a heart breaking discussion that my beautiful boy needs to find a new loving home, where he can have some Ladies of his own. It's not fair just to keep him here as a pet, where he will be totally wasted, so I'll shortly be putting him up for sale..

Viscount With His Ladies..

I took these photograph's yesterday of Vikey with his ladies. From left to right in the top photograph is Vikey, Katie and BB.
In the second photograph is Vikey, doesn't he look like he's got a big smile on his face.
In the last photograph is Vikey with all his girls again including Lemoney on the far right..
He is such a gentleman, when we take food down to them, he backs away and lets the girls eat first.

Playing With The Foals..

Just thought I'd share some photographs of me playing with the Foals, that were taken a few days ago..
I try to handle them every day, giving them a cuddle, a scratch, pick their feet up, touch all down their legs and give them plenty of kisses..
I don't know who enjoys it more me or the Foals.

Foals.. Beau & Barney..

I took these pictures on Tuesday, when we introduced the foals to each other. We all went into the field just in case there was any problems, but thankfully everything was fine.
Beau is fascinated by his new little play mate..

Hericus Barnabas

Our new little one now has a name. His full stable name will be Hericus Barnabas or Barney for short. Harry did want to call him Brutus, but the name just did not suit this Tiny one.

New Arrival Born Monday 8th June...

After all the waiting, there was a knock on the Door on Monday Evening at 8pm telling us that Muffy had just given birth in our drive.
It was a mad dash up the drive to find Muffy laying on the floor with the foal standing beside her. I would not have minded but we'd only checked her a little while before.
After the shock birth on the drive. Mum and Baby were moved into a nice warm stable to do their bonding.
We made sure baby had his first drink and Pooh! (Yes you do have to check everything). Then went indoors to have a celebratory cup of tea. After about 30 minutes, we went back to check everything was OK and I wasn't happy with the look and behaviour of Muffy, who was stamping the ground, getting down, then up again. So called the emergency vet out. The poor girl had Colic and boy was she in a state. We walked her round and round the stable, waiting for the vet to arrive, the poor foal must have been so dizzy following its Mum. The vet arrived gave her a couple of jabs, checked all was well at the birth end and we stood with her and watched the medication take effect. Our Dutch Vet Wim is brilliant. By now it is Midnight!..
Saw the Vet off then came in for another cuppa. Then back down the stable's at 1.30am to check all was well and baby was feeding. Finally at 3am, went to bed...
Muffy was perfectly fine at 7am the next morning and baby was up and about and feeding really well.
We noticed after he'd dried off in the stable, that he has a little lightening streak on his bottom, do we have another Harry Potter Fan in our midst? or was he kissed by the Angels?.
There is still some debate about his name, so we are just calling him baby at the moment.
