27th June, 2017 You've Grown

It's difficult to believe that Minstrel is only fourteen months old. She is so tall and so sensible for her age. It's been a while since I saw her, and since then she has been to a stud farm where she was weaned in the company of other lively youngsters. Back at home she has been reunited with her dam and has another yearling to keep her company. Today we worked on a list of six things: leading, tying up, foot handling, acceptance of water and acceptance of fly spray and a fly mask. The key to accepting anything wet is to change the sensation with a lovely rub.


New Forest Pony, Frostie, plays a vital role in Minnie's life - she imposes a bit of discipline!

Back at Fritham I spent time watching Juma sleep.
