Talking Destiny and (not so) little Wombat

I have been working with Destiny a lot over the last few weeks, part of my goal to make sure all my mares are at least green broke. The more I do with her the more I like her, apart from at feeding time when she turns into ravenous beast from hell New I've found the right bit for her, French Link, she is working on the longlines beautifully, and she has such nice free flowing paces, I'm hoping that she will be nice to ride.



Little Wombat, who seems like a midget when compared to Stewie the Moose, but actually is a nice size for an 11 week old Haflinger is also a really nice boy to work with, never had one so friendly and smart



I got impatient and had to clip a bit of his shoulder to see what we have under that foal fluff, and he is dark, I mean DARK, I can't get it to show up so well on the pics, but he is definitely chocolate on his head and ears, and only a bit lighter on his body, now if his mane would lighten up a bit he is going to be a little stunner.

I think Wombat should come live with me!!! He's adorable!!! Love the haffy breed!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Is Wombat his real name? or just a nickname? He is utterly adorable and I love the name, don't get me wrong.

I mean I call my cat "Lumpy".

His real name is A Royal Event, seeing as he was born during the Royal Wedding, I was going to call him William as a barn name, when someone mentioned that Prince William was called Wombat as a child. I loved it so we call him Willy Wombat

He's lucky he just got a little shaved, not prodded and shaken
