Its been fairly quiet on the farm, Upa has headed South back to his owners Sian and Sebastian, at their new farm in Cheshire. We had a great weekend delivering him and being wined and dined by S&S. We both coveted another little Criollo mare, called Fatama, but the budget doesn't stretch to her for the moment!! Sian and Sebastian have just bought Arrayan's full brother, so we look forward to meeting him when he arrives.
The foals are all well, they are now certified Yanks and have just been drawn by Andrew the vet for their British passports. Stela helpfully "collected" all the paperwork for Andrew, carried it round the pen and then when she wasn't getting enough attention she ate it! Someone's papers are going to be rather soggier than the others.
The have all had their feet done again, as per usual Stela bounces up and down going "Me me meeeeeeeee, do MY feet." Marco likes to supervise all work carried out very carefully with his nose over Marks shoulder. Amber picks up the tools and hands them to Mark, occasionally getting her swing wrong and giving Stela a dig in the ribs with the rasp - cue filthy looks from Stel. Gordon endures - complete with sighs. They are all so different but a lot of fun and very very funny.
Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas from Chamfron Stud!
