Diary (Beginning of November 2010)
Since my last update, we are now seeing a bit of a heatwave, for this time of year at least! Very warm, and very damp. All a bit confusing for us humans - but what must the wildlife be thinking? The Gilfach horses are also suitably confused...
A further weather-related observation - all the horses are feeling full of "it"! Changes in weather often seems to result in changes of energy (and not just the digestible sort!). With the Autumn seeming so topsy turvy, the behaviour of even our most seasoned horses, is somewhat spritely (!) at the moment. Of course, being true professionals, the "school" horses reserve any excessive exuberance to their turn-out time.
Ico has been re-assessed by the vets following his first IRAP treatment, and the vet was delighted with his response so far. His trot up was nothing less than spectacular at the vets today - possibly aided by the presence of a donkey in the adjacent paddock! (Note to self - buy a donkey for future spectacular trot work...).
