I wish I could do that Qtrbel but unfortunately due to the increase of sodding dairy farming over here there are no places nearby that can safely ride with His Lordship in tow. It's all roads. I don't like to ride in the paddock as they are no more than about 10 acres and both me and horse gets pretty bored very quickly with that
I so miss my days of living on a big station SIIIGH!

Understand. We have 25 to ride through and it goes from flat land, through woods and along a hollow and then into a small valley. Same scenery but we vary the route to cut the boredom. I have always wanted to go to Australia since reading The Thornbirds way back when. A friend of my husband has family on a big station so maybe one day we'll make it over.

LOL erm, QTRBEL, I'm in New Zealand - there's a fair bit of sea between us and Australia

That there is. My bad and I knew you were in New Zealand too. I have Australia on the brain. My ex SIL was invited to row with the New Zealand team in the Olympics in college. Spent a couple of years there and loved it. Her pics are so green.

She proabably lives in the west coast of either island - it's much greener there all year round
And you are forgiven - it's all Le Uncle's fault for being Australian

If Teddy's half the character of Zephyr, I think we'll be fine

I just look at Teddys face and think he's the most beautiful horsey features i've ever seen - like a proud mum *sigh* haha

If I had the talent (I won't say time as i've a deckchair at the stable so time isn't a problem for me ), i'd start a blog like yours, but as I haven't, i'll just have to revel in Zephyr's adventures instead so keep up the good work xx

Regarding weaning, will you be leaving Merlot to just push him off her and refuse to let him feed?

I must admit i've had a few tears about having to split Fox and Teddy up (i've been told the way to wean is to seperate them for a month - different stables/venues etc) and we've just got her weight back up (she's looking really good after dropping dramatically in a short space of time) so i'd like her to wean him herself now we've hopefully brought her weight up to stay at a steady weight - like they would in the wild but being new to this, i'm not sure if that's the way to go?

If Merlot was having another foal I'd od the self weaning - but unfortunately if there is no other foal on the way (which there isn't) I believe the mare will keep on feeding as long as baby feels like feeding - I'm guessing in Zephyr's case...never. So yes SIIIGH he will have to be weaned - have been taking him for walks without her - he loves it - she frets. And eventually I will separate them into paddocks where they can see each other and maybe even touch noses but he can't feed, and then gradually increase the time he spends out of her sight with longer walks. I don't believe in sudden weaning - far too traumatic. We're bringing Persil's best buddy Danny Boy back for the weaning so Merlot will be with Danny while Zephyr stays with his Uncle. Once officially weaned he will be going off to be with a big herd including a gorgeous quarter horse girlfriend only a year older than he is.
This will be a lot of fun to photograph I am guessing

Zephyr practises his new hairdressing skills on Le Uncle with results that have Muzzerr sniggering all morning!
