Ping, Pang and Pong
We remain confined with Ping, Pang and Pong, our three foals from last year, as the ice is too treacherous to get them across the lane to the field or even for our stallion Danilon to do anything more than trudge, slipping gently around the car park in hand. But still they enjoy coming out on to the little area in front of the stables for a daily fuss and brush supervised by Danilon of course in his role as Baby sitter!
Annie from a Holstein mare Lizzie, who was born in May, seem here supervised by her father Dani in his stable behind her.
Annie again with Charles ( who's rather smitten)
Archie, born in July whose fur coat does look better than that in the flesh but spends a lot of time in bed asleep probably waiting for spring.....getting rather plump too
Archie is just starting to develop the wavy Iberian Mane!
So that was today at Ednovean Farm - still snowing steadily tonight and all brood mares only leaving their stable for a brief time with great reluctance! I've written more about them in my Ednovean farm blog:- http://ednoveanfarm.blogspot.com/ for some more of life on Ednovean farm.
