... I hope the time away from your 'audience' was enjoyable and/or productive and/or whatever (as long as it was good)!

Thanks everyone,I had a lovely time looking & Photographing at birds... (Pictured - a NZ Tui)

And seals (Pictured a NZ Fur Seal) Very excited to see they have made such a dramatic come-back!

And helping people with their horse (people) problems.
The only problem - I missed my baby boy so much I ached to get home to home! Of course I expected he would feel the same (yeah right) but what was interesting is that Muzzerr (Merlot) (The real Merlot) would have nothing to do with the friend I had looking after them but when I went into the paddock she gathered me up with much nickering as if I am her (uzzerr) foal!!! Zephyr followed me round everywhere but more out of carrot sensing duties I expect (not that I actually do give them carrots every time I am down there) and Le Uncle (Persil) ignored me completely - very unusual. He seemed to be quite cross with me for being away so long.
This morning everything is back to normal wth much snuggling from everyone
Sorry to hear your week has been crappy reckyroo - hope you are not caught up in the fires.

No fires (i'm in the UK) although I seem to be caught up in plenty of crossfires this week

I think the horses sense when something's happening - i've been having a tough time lately about what to do with Teddy - I always said I wouldn't get rid of him but i'm doubting my experience to bring on a foal who's almost as big as his 15.2hh mum and he's been a little sh*t these last few weeks (although he IS due to be gelded in the next few weeks so that will hopefully knock him down a peg or two) but this week both him and my gorgeous, temperamental, moody-cow Foxy have been so lovely and so well behaved, it's as though the last few naughty weeks haven't happened I think they know they have to behave or Teddy gets it Even the hubby's stepping up and helping with training so we can keep Teddy.

But of course I can guarantee that Zephry will always cheer me up

P.s. Beautiful photos - just wow!

oh DUH! For some reason I thought you were in Australia.
How old is Teddy? Yes gelding should definitely help though it will take a few months for the hormones to dissipate.
So far Zephyr has been amazing. I am expecting that he will try me out any time from now though as he is becoming a 'teenager' but so far so good. He is very respectful yet cheeky so endears himself to everyone who meets him. His mother is a gentle soul and it seems to be rubbing off on him I'm very very lucky.
Don't worry Recky things will get better

Fingers crossed you're right - Teddy's 7 months now (just) - he can be so sweet - always following you round and watching you muck out and as soon as we have new shavings down, he's straight in rolling round - he really is such a sweetheart but he's decided he's NOT going to walk on a leadrope for the time being (which my son will be rectifying tomorrow) and he started to turn his bum and kick when you shouted no! But a few flicks on his bum with the crop sorted that one out and this last week he seems to have gone back to his usual sweet inquisitive self....

Seriously, my 4 boys were easier than this

The Weaning

Zephyr throws a wobbly but then forgets what he is meant to be upset about and, well, keeps calm and carry's on!!!
