I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Oh, and did I mention that I'd love to come and cuddle him right now? For hours straight!

Again, congratulations!! So VERY stunning!! Glad everything went so well and that you got to be there! He is absolute perfection (if there was such thing as perfect)
I am very much looking forward to watching his development. Thank you for sharing their lives with us.

Day 4

Zephyr is a big schmooze. His mother is standoffish to everyone except me but that doesn't stop Zephyr from introducing himself to everyone.

Poor Persil -I took him to join the herd and he got so upset I had to bring him home later that day. I thought he would enjoy himself but no he want's to be where I am and where he can see his nephew.

Unfortunately with me being 'slightly' preoccupied, I noticed this morning that Persil's sheath is very swollen which can be a precurser to founder! Now on top of everything else he has been relegated to the sheep paddock where he has to share his hay with the sheeples.

He and Bedlamb actually get on very well and spent the morning playing King of the Hill -must try to get some photos of this.
Anyway here is Zephyr Moo with his frazzled Mother, Day 4, as bold as ever!
(Plus one I snuck in of Persil sharing his hay with the sheeples)

awwww poor Persil, could it also be that he has a bean in his sheath or something? A friend of mines gelding had that happen and she had neglected to remove a rather large bean because "cleaning sheaths is gross"
Atleast you noticed it and took action before anything happened, brilliant ownership :)

Little(huge) Zephyr is sooo **** cute if he goes missing.... He's not in the lower north island...

Awww....poor Persil. If we weren't halfway around the world I would invite him to come stay with me and my cranky old Isabel.

Baby is adorable. But you already knew that

Persil has gone back to the herd - the short grass in the sheep paddock is still growing and therefore has that high potassium that is so bad for him so like it or not he is back on the rough grass out with the herd - I don't hear him calling this morning so am guessing he has settled. These are the photos of him reintroducing himself
And no HollyBubbles, def not a sheath stone - the vet cleaned that out when he did his teeth a couple of months ago - no unfortunately sheath swelling is one of the first signs of pre laminitis - his crest is also getting hard - I feel really bad for not picking up on it earlier actually, have been concentrating on His Lordship - more photos of him to come later
Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments
