Tomorrow looks ok till later in the day, so I might get them out again. Here's a pic I took just after I put them out on Friday. Sparky was still calling for Dennis, and thought one of the sheep in the next field might be him. :sad:

Re: PET'S CORNER

They are getting used to being next door to each other in the barn. I put them out in the snow on Friday and there was lots of fun and excitement but no one suffered any damage. I can't blame Sparky entirely for the inappropriate activity, Minnie was very encouraging. They had another day inside yes...

Re: PET'S CORNER

Yes Stanley, as long as they are stuck in their stables there is no problem. I never like keeping them in for long periods but neither of these two seem to mind, it was Dennis who went stir crazy.

It's below freezing here with icy wet snow falling heavily. There is an easterly wind which means drifts on the roads, yuck.

It's settling up here now and looks dark and dreary out there. The ponies, dog, cats and humans will be staying indoors as much as possible! Saying that, I'm just off outside to let hens and ducks into their run. I wonder when the avian flu restrictions will end, I miss having the hens wandering aro...

Re: PET'S CORNER

Well! The gorgeous Minnie arrived today and she is a stunner. I was too overwhelmed to take photos this morning though there is a video on my Facebook page taken by Becky. Sparky thinks she is gorgeous too, which is a bit of a problem because his manhood was stirred ( despite his manhood being remov...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

My friend took her 90+ year old parents to Colne for their jabs last week and was very impressed by how well organised it was. Straight in with no waiting around then plenty of space to sit down for 15 min afterwards with their release times stuck on their coats!

Re: Seen in the News

On my trip to Skipton and back this morning (outside my area for medical reasons) and on a walk this afternoon (into Yorkshire, no good reason) I saw plenty cyclists and walkers. No one was asking them how far they were from home, they were just benefiting from the fresh air and exercise.

Re: Seen in the News

Probably because there are no photos of the sighting in the Olympic Park. According to the BBC news report he was seen and reported by one woman.

Re: PET'S CORNER

I'm borrowing Minnie from the girl who comes to pamper the ponies and give me a hand. Minnie is a 12.2 black and white mini cob who had a foal earlier this year. She is supposedly laid back and easy going. :smile: We will see if they get on ok. :smile:

I took him in to see and sniff at Dennis. He was calling out in the night, I could hear him through the bedroom wall which adjoins the barn but he stopped eventually. He seems quite calm this morning.

Re: PET'S CORNER

I wish it hadnt happened as it did Sue. Last night i was relieved when his suffering was over and today I have to face up to a few problems, but I will be fine. It was bound to happen sooner or later. Thank heavens it didn't happen when we were a foot deep in snow!

Re: PET'S CORNER

Thanks everyone for your kind words. I didn't sleep much after what was an awful experience, mostly worrying about the logistics of removing him from the stable when the knacker man comes. I dare say they are used to tricky situations. I've always said that if one went the other would too but I have...

Re: PET'S CORNER

Not sure what to say, I lost Dennis tonight. He had severe colic and didn't respond to painkillers and muscle relaxant. The vet and I made a quick decision to put him out of pain. Twisted gut possibly. :sad: :sad:
