    Oh it was so Chevaux - ironic that it happened the day after His Lordship decided to get into hairdressing but yes it happened LOL

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
    Wonderful - I've been worrying about the weaning - suddenly seperating them - and her not knowing if he's going to be coming back (as her last 6 foals didn't!) - we only have the 2 horses and we're not on a yard so a little planning will have to go into this I think although we're going to be doeing a bit of DIY, ready for splitting the stable in 2 - ready for when Teddy's weaned. At the moment, he still wants to walk behind Fox or at the side of her when being led, so I again, a bit more work needed there with him as i'm hoping to ride Fox next year so will need him to be used to seperation - i'm having lessons at a riding school in readyness - today I was the oldest "pupil" by 30 years xx

    Did you feel the quake?

    Not this time - we've had our fair share - actually, as Flossom the cat said...Hardly worth getting out of bed for a 5.6 quake - Here in Canterbury, We only start to move if a wall actually comes down

    We had a small one in Tx that caused the ceiling to fall in one of the upstairs rooms. Would have been a problem if we'd have been in there as the ceilings were horsehair plaster and iron reinforcements from the late 1800/early1900. Carted literally a ton of material out (big room). Earthquakes scare me. Sounds funny from one where hurricanes are common.... Glad you didn't feel it.

    Good grief QtrBel, I'd rather have earthquakes than hurricanes any day!!! Now THEY are truly scary!
