26th April, 2007 Puck

Puck and his mother (Sire: Buckland Cruiser)

Nice work if you can get it. Today I worked with an untouched yearling New Forest pony called Puck. He was a straightforward textbook case. Although he is Forest-bred, he has never been drifted or branded and has a friendly mother and owners - both nature and nurture on his side. Within an hour I had his headcollar on (and off and on and off and on) and had handled his feet and picked them up and started to lead him. In the meantime, Rushy has been out looking at traffic and decided that he quite likes boys toys swooshing past him in the rain.
