yearlings and foals and er dolly!

So do you remember Magic our striped foal - well here he is resplendent in his new grey coat and proud as a peacock! He matches his full sister Amie below quite perfectly.

Amie meets Toffee with her full brother Magic standing to the rear

Perhaps I should explain - it was such a beautiful afternoon, that we decided to let the yearlings graze the little "orchard" (six trees) beside the back stables for the afternoon and inevitably -very, very, soon an inquisitive troop of foals appeared to make their introductions.

Amie and Archie are now yearlings and have made a wonderful job of mowing the paddock since this photo

Toffee with the little orphaned filly Sophie

Sophie - such a sweet filly and now doing very well

Archie who was born last July is by Danilon meeting Toffee (By Lenard Holstein) born this February

Diva has been promoted to herd mother much against her better judgment

and that was the day that the sky was a perfect blue, the sun was delightfully warm, the grass was still sweet and Autumn had yet to settle over us Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I hate winter

and lastly Dolly now a strapping two year old and we will start her after Christmas if she doesn't find the perfect home (Husband not included!)
