7th October, 2017 Let's Go Back

On a day when we were expecting a new lodger, it was a surprise (to Henrietta in particular) to find we already had six guests...luckily they were intent on tidying up for us.

We need to go and pick up our permanent guest and passed some of Juma's siblings on the way.

As if he doesn't already have enough brothers and sisters to choose from, we were picking up Nelly's second colt, Peechay, from his current owner, Nicki, who has looked after him beautifully for the last five years. If you name a pony the Hindi for "Let's go back" then I suppose you should expect that he might come home one day.

Peechay hasn't been started under saddle and so I need to decide whether he will be turned away, at least for the winter, or start his preparation for being ridden.

He was a lovely foal, a son of Lovely High Jack with Knightsway Billy Boy as his maternal grandfather.
