29th June, 2013 Fat on the Forest

You'd be forgiven for thinking that my Forest kept ponies were all pregnant but since Nelly and Blue came off the Forest when the stallions were out and Pie is a boy, that's hardly likely. Everyone is tucking into the new heather at the moment and the crunching is really loud.

Ponies with pink extremities always struggle in the sun and Pie is no exception. He has got plenty of shade he can get under but is often right out in the middle of the plain. I work on the basis that he is happier out wild than in and that this counter-balances everything else.
