Well I got brave on Saturday and put Tigger into a new paddock and then put the mares and their 7 month old foals in with him. After an initial gallop around, lead by Annie of course, everyone settled down to eat. Tig galloped like a spring chicken, must remind him he is 22!
The foals are fascinated by Tig and Chico was the first one to go and say hi. Tig has never seen foals before these two and has a real problem with little ponies, especially minis, but he is fine with the babies. They have been grooming each other over the gate for a while and look like being good buddies already. They had a grooming session this afternoon - so cute! Tig is big 16.2 hh bay and Chico and Toffee 7 month old babies , they are big but still had to stretch to reach Tig's wither
Toffee came up and did the mouthing foal thing but stayed with Mum (Annie) most of the first afternoon.Today they were both following Tig around and copying everything he did - hilarious to watch.
Nemo has been turned out this week and wasn't keen to come in to work today. He would much rather just stay and eat and boss the pony around lol! I gave lessons today and one of the children I teach is jumping so well! She did 70cms today after only 4 lessons!
We are getting lots of requests for old manure so have got rid of a lot of the winter pile already.
Martin had heaps of maintenance to do this weekend. The pony on a diet broke through a post and rail fence to get at the grass and Tig broke yet another ballcock in his trough - he's done about 4 now
