So that’s Tiddles back with his friends now. He loaded beautifully (last time, he put the brakes on in the middle of the road and a neighbour had to help shove him into the van!)
I popped Tiddles into the field after I had put out the bowls for the old ladies, Fivla and Vitamin.
It was interesting to watch – Tiddles went up to introduce himself to Fivla, who is now the boss mare of the herd. She told him where to go – note the swish of the tail. Next she would’ve given him both barrels!
Poor Tiddles. He thought he would get a better welcome than that.
I hope Newt will take him under his wing as they only really have each other.
Silver was easily caught – again, another surprise as I thought he would be haring around the field with the newly-arrived Tiddles. But no, a carrot and a headcollar and he loaded into the van.
I put him into the indoor school and sent the others in to say hello.
Again, this was a complete non-event.
So that’s Tiddles gone and Silver starting a very strict diet. He has many kilos to lose. Sorry, Silver!
