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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
