14th March, 2012 Why the long ears?
Great to be reunited with Xanthe, her Suffolk Punch, Tally, and her collection of beautiful mules this evening - Xato, Tomeu and Jordi. Xato arrived inside his Mummy's tummy when she was imported from France but Tomeu and Jordi had endured some poor treatment and still find it difficult to trust people. Since we last saw them, Xato has begun to load readily and Tomeu and Jordi are so much braver than they ever were. As the sun started to go down, we long reined Xato and then spent time foot handling with the other two.
