Aren't they sweet - (the pooches).The big boy at the back is Partly Bluett - he's 13 but as fit as a buck ra, the next is Badger (Bludger) Magoo - she's only got three legs but can still outrun a rabbit! She's 7. And in the front is Badger's son Beetle Magoo. He's 5 years and has recently come to live with us as his owners could no longer have him. It's great to have him join the pack and he is LOVING his new life! Weird thing is that Badger recognised him after not having seen him since he was weaned! She kept on going up to him with her 'puppy mouth' that she only does to puppies or really small dogs!
They're all Huntaways so you can imagine, if there's anything exciting going on we all know about it!

Love huntaways <3
Now, back to horses. How long is your guesstimate of Merlot's foaling day? :P I reckon Frey may be dead on her due date :)

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

LOL well, I'd say about a week and a half - 2 weeks now. She has D Cup boobs today but is moving around and gobbing down the grass as if she's never seen it before.
As Persil told, me it'll be a cold day in hell before that foal moves out.

im with persil on this one.That baby is taking its sweet time in there.

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.

Nov 13th

This morning it is a cold grey day, I caught Persil 'Planking'.

Merlot said she is trying to get him to 'plank' across the creek since he is such a 'Smart arse' pony who reckons having a foal should be a piece of cake and if he was having a foal, it would be no big deal, in fact, she said, according to Persil, no one would even realise until he had it and he certainly wouldn't be groaning and huffing like an over burdened steam train...

I think it's time I moved Merlot into the foaling paddock to give Persil some Time Out.

Nags Equine??? NAGS???
I'll have you know these are noble steeds, Legends in their own paddock, Outstanding in their Field, Impressing the grass (when they lie down), Bred for....uh, bred to..., bred to eat enormous amounts of anything vaguely green ...
No wait, they are....Nags. You're right. Especially Merlot - just ask Persil he'll tell you that's all she does...nag nag nag.
