I'm having fun with this cheeky-monkey-of-a-pony...
That look! Finney is so cute, but he can be naughty. Still, he has a good heart and he's learning!
And he's so cute. Did I mention that? I took these photos before Christmas when there was still snow on the ground. It all melted on Boxing Day and turned the paddock into a muddy cesspool. Now the temps have dropped again and we should get some snow this weekend to clean things up!
So glad we adopted these two!
Selfie with Finney.
Selfie with Esme.
And then, after the thaw, they spent their days rolling in the mud. I do brush them, but I can't keep up!
Minor panic on the weekend when a bunch of my horse friends thought Esme was pregnant!
Nope, turns out she's just fat. She went into heat yesterday. Finney was gelded at the end of September. It never occurred to me that Esme might be pregnant until all my horsey friends started asking questions. But as I found out, they were carefully separated in foster care whenever Esme was in heat. PHEW!
Meanwhile, we are continuing to enjoy our riding lessons at Havencrest Farm.
We had a good lesson this evening! This is Gordon with Snip's bum. I think tonight was the first time I got on the horse and rode without a tinge of fear. :)
And here's a rude hat I just bought, thanks to Valerie over at Wandering Cat, who sent the link.
Rude, but true, and an appropriate answer to all the people who ask me why I have 13 cats!
Have a great New Year's eve tomorrow! I'm still figuring out supper, but we're going to pig out on our annual chocolate fondue.
