To add insult to injury Juma was also micro-chipped. Both ponies were sedated.
I am in two minds about when to turn them out on to the Forest. I need to re-acquaint Peechay and Juma with their environment urgently and yet make sure that all three don't drop in condition - especially as Nelly is still feeding Juma. The quietest time would be over Christmas when the traffic dies down a little. Hopefully they would come home to be fed. The safest would be April when the clocks have changed and the commuters are crossing the Forest in the daylight. However, they would be back in again within a month to avoid Nelly getting pregnant when the stallions go back out.
