Started Weaning.

The first two foals, Sakura and Rufina are weaned and were ready to go into the pen together.  Unfortunately that meant moving all the hay to get to the straw, these big square bales and the one spike on the tractor isn't a match made in heaven.  Its never a good moment when the bale is swinging away and then pop, pop, POP, all the strings give way and the hay is littering the yard, its like watching ten pound notes floating off down the driveway.  So a temperary "stop the swivel spike" was added, never let it be said that only Mr Grey knows what to do with cable ties, eh?!!!  Anyway, it turned into a not bad night and the foals are happy as larry in their new abode.
