Weaning Victor – Day 3

Friday 28th October 2011 – (Today’s my Dad’s birthday!) Well, today when I got up I was doubtful as to whether Victor (our five-and-a-half month old miniature Shetland foal) would still be in his new field after his spectacular escape the day before yesterday. Luckily it seems, the enormous amount of fencing, repairing holes and […]

Weaning Victor – Day 2

Thursday 27th October 2011 Today when I went down to the field (where all four ponies now are, due to Victor getting out late last night) Gradbach wasn’t letting the little foal out of his sight! He was so worried yesterday when Victor got out. So today, my Dad and I did loads of fencing […]

Weaning Victor – Day 1

Wednesday 26th October 2011 This morning I decided it was time to wean Victor, our lovely mini Shetland foal (he’s five months and three weeks old).

Just a quick post about the latest farrier visit. The farrier (David Lawrence) was due around our farm at about 4-4.30pm, so at 3.15 I went out to get the ponies ready. I quickly caught all the ponies, put their head collars on and then lead Rosie up to the gate, and the rest followed. […]

Halter Training Victor – 10th September 2011

I’ve just got in from a monring session of training Victor (Mignon Velvet), the adorable miniature shetland pony foal we have. Today he was very lively; jumping everywhere, annoying the mares (Morjoy Tulip and Hermits Velvet Rose) and rolling about on the wet grass. Luckily for our stallion, (Goldsytch Gradbach), Victor chose to ignore him. […]

Halter Training Victor – 8 September 2011

Today I attached the lead rope to Victor’s halter for the first time. I’d managed to catch him and get his head collar on fairly easily and clipped the blue lead rope onto the metal ring. At first Victor was confused. He moved his head up and down trying to shake the rope off; he […]

Just got back in from another training session with Victor (Mignon Velvet) – a very adorable little skewbald roan miniature Shetland foal. And today I managed to get his head collar on easily.

My Pets’ November 2010 Update

Ok, so November has brought the first of this year’s cold weather, snow and ice. Lovely. Every morning when I’ve been going down to the ponies and guinea pigs and Velvet at around 7am, it’s gradually been getting colder. First I’d notice it with the bitter temperatures, then the ponies water would have a think […]
