Now we are seventeen!
Dancer and Grace join our ten dogs and five cats!
Yesterday, Jean and I went across to our neighbour’s ranch to collect two miniature horses, Dancer and her daughter Grace. Jean was a keen horsewoman many years ago and when we became aware that our neighbour, Margo, was also a keen horse breeder, trainer and coach, the lure of getting two horses was too much! Two miniature horses seemed the perfect idea.
So just a few pictures to share the event.
Jean is holding Dancer while Grace is waiting by the fence. Our original plans had been to take Dancer’s sister’s foal Allegra, but she was too stressed to leave her mother so soon; she is just six months old. As an interim, we borrowed Grace, Dancer’s last foal, until Allegra is ready to move homes.
For Grace especially, the horse being led by Margo, this was quite an adventure, as the next photograph demonstrates.
Then before they knew it, their new enclosure beckoned.
Jean opens her heart to the latest member of the Handover family!
In next to no time, Dancer is settling down.
And the view’s pretty good!
Back to normal tomorrow!
