Odey took the top spot yesterday. Despite breezy weather in an open field, he coped admirably with the umbrella and the tarpaulin, something that would have been unthinkable a few weeks ago. He seems to settle down to work very quickly once he realises that he will not be asked to do anything he can't handle, and then starts to be curious and brave.
He's extremely beautiful too.
One of the first foals on the Forest. This little filly lives alongside one of the busiest roads on the Forest. Let's hope the traffic slows down.
An afternoon of teeth with wondervet Amy from The Barn. As a protégé of Chris Pearce I can relax in the knowledge that she will do a thorough job of treating my horses' teeth and noticing any abnormalities. Nelly was checked but not sedated this time as we are too close to her foaling date.
Nelly and Blue seemed happy to be back out on the Forest...
