by popular demand

well actually, to tell the truth, by one demand really - that of lottie and me! here are the rest of our menagerie!
this is my daughter's horse 'Mr Pye'
this is her pony 'mitch' who she can't bear to part with (mind you he is such a little toad, bucks and leaps, i'm not sure anyone else would want him!) aaah i hear you say - looks can be deceiving!

here are Tops and Bubs - who are very happily retired, one having dodgy breathing and the other arthritis
and last, but by no means least, is Iona a lovely little new forest mare, who is mine
this is not a very good pic of her, but i was in a bit of rush at the time! never actually intended to end up with five, but , hey ho, that's what we've got!

might as well meet the rest of the 'family'!

we only have three sheep left now, they are all old ladies, Nancy, Jade and Dotty!
well lottie and me, there you are, you did ask!
bye for now

Awww, lovely to meet the rest of your 'family'! Your Iona looks very beautiful. I can't remember the last time I rode a horse - probably over 25 years ago :-O

Great pics of your four-legged hairy and woolly friends. Magic. Do you collect wool from your lovely sheep for spinning etc?

hi silverpebble - i used to spin but have not done so for ages. the reason i learnt was because i had some fleece and couldn't find anyone to spin it - so i thought i'd have a go! its very therapeutic and gives you lovely soft hands!

Very nice horses! (and pony!) My daughter will have to see these! She used to ride and was jumping hunt seat. She decided she didn't want to compete any more and it's been a few months since we've been to the horse barn! I love the photos of your sheep too! I'm so jealous. I think the farm girl in me is starting to come out!

What lovely four-legged friends :)

How do you find time to blog? I find that four chickens, a senile dog and three gerbils take enough time, let alone proper animals like yours!!


wonderwoman said...

thanks for all your lovely comments - now you know why i have so many projects on the go and take a while to finish any!

They look a freindly bunch - used to do a lot of riding as a child, but am very allergic to horses now...and they tend to run when they see me waddling towards them!!

Oh sweeet! Better not show those pics to my littlies- they're going through the "Can we have a pony, mum?" stage!
