The Nightmare Unfolds!





We had a bit of a nightmare unfold upon us this weekend!!



I recieved a phone call to say the ponies had escaped on to the main road and were running riot amongst the traffic, not the best start to the day.........




Off up the farm I travelled in a very hurried manner with thoughts of squashed ponies with limbs missing on my mind. The field in question holds 3 brood mares, 2 yearlings and a 3 yr old. I instictively knew that the old Irish Connemara brood and her yearling would have been the two that would have made the great escape in the first place and it would be them that had led the others to venture outside of the field!



And yes I was right it was the terrible two! Luckily there were no blood and guts on display and both were quite happy with themselves now placed in the opposite farmers field.




After all the panic and rush was over with and the ponies were safely moved to another field until my better half gets tasked with mending the fence I was finally able to relax and enjoy my weekend!!



********************************


I have also got my heart set on another piece of EB which I am now going to be hunting for this year, again it is another egg coddler but this one I would like in the blue star design! It is beautiful and would go perfect with my collection and so the search is now on!!!
