So glad I don't have to do that! Pan is the bane of her mother's existence right now. She is so in your face and just constantly kissing her mum and pulling her halter and just won't go away going to enjoy working with her when I come home for good
Apprently everything is going well at home. Both girls are fat as coming into winter. Freya is bored out of her skull and not appriciating The Weed suckling anymore. She is giving Pan little butt nips and pinning her ears when she feeds but has yet to full out tell her to sling her hook
On the down side, looks like I wont be able to get back home for some time. Don't have any annual leave atm. So the next time I'll see Pan she may well be almost a yearling Which will suck. Not only have I missed out on my first baby growing up but she will not know how to lead or tie so next year is going to be interesting haha A friend may take her on after winter but we will see.
My last day here down south is November 17th, thirteen days before her 1st birthday and Freya's 7th I'm counting down the days!
Ah, don't worry too much about the early handling, she has had lots of attention from you and nothing has been negative. Just do what you can, when you can.
I'm just bringing a horse into training who is 7....... she already was halter broke but hasn't ever done anything else.... she's 15h arab x appaloosa... nice natured but opinionated, er... fun ??
I just put a good foundation on her sister who was 5, quieter in nature though.
GAH! Things just SUCK! Mum texted me today saying Freya was lame again. So she gets dad to go out and have a look at her hooves. She had a bit of wire stuck in the hoof wall on her front right hoof Dad took it out and she apparently almost collapsed in pain They've bathed it and applied iodene but she's sore Farrier coming on the 6th June so at least that is something. I'm upset, fed up, missing home like mad and not enjoying this life down in the cold wet windy south
Anyway, that's my rant. Pan is fine apparently and Freya is eating I'm just worried about her hooves now. Mum checks her everyday, they are right outside the house, but it's not like they are getting groomed or their hooves picked out daily ok i'll stop now. Back to work
