The world is a sadder place tonight

Today the world has lost a wonderful woman. And what a wonderful woman she was. The Stallions mum very sadly passed away today. I haven't seen human for a couple of days but I don't mind. The Stallions mum passed away with all her family around her this morning.
She was born in Sept 1929 in the east end of London. WWII broke out when she was a young girl. She didn't want to be evacuated to the country and lived through the blitz. She came very very close to losing her life when the house next door got bombed and the family died.
She met her future husband when she was 14 at a youth club, he used to hide her bicycle so he could walk her home.
Eventually she got married and had 3 children. She had a wonderfully happy marriage, but sadly she lost her husband 16yrs ago.
She was the most amazing lady and yes she was a lady. Very proper. Never raised her voice. Always neat and very smart. Human could take a leaf out of her book in the looking tidy issue.
She came to see me once a long time ago. She always asked human about me whenever she saw human.
The last words she spoke to YMF were, "Thank you for being so kind". The hands are The Stallion and his mum. Her name was Jean by the way.
The humans will miss her dreadfully.

Oops busted.

Thank goodness human is back. I've survived this week with Laceys human (LH) doing the chores but do you know I've not had a single carrot. NOT ONE. How rubbish is that?
I got my needs seen to I suppose. LH did bring me supper every day although one day she forgot. Yep forgot my supper. I made her go back to the yard to get it. I mean please, I'd waste away if I didn't get my meagre rations especially with no carrots. I text human to let her know.......she didn't care she was on holiday and said I had so much grass I wouldn't starve. What does she know huh? I bet she wasn't starving herself on her holiday.
There was one bright moment. Human has a special poo cleaning fork that The Stallion made her. LH didn't have a clue how to use it so it was rather fun watching her trying to get to grips with it. The spoilsport only went and brought her own with her the next day. How boring.
Anyway human is back. I was pleased to see her despite her telling me if I'd been as hungry as I'd said I would have eaten the hay she left. Ooops busted.

Great wee plod with friends

Looks like The Stallions mother is not going to be here much longer. She is very very poorly. Human and The Stallion went to visit her yesterday and didn't see me at all. It's ok folks don't worry YMF and the mini Grandfoals came and saw to my needs.
Tomorrow human is going away on a mini holiday with The Stallion I'm borrowing Lacy and Tiara's human for a few days.
So this morning human obviously isn't feeling too great and I am a great emotional healer. She asked if I could take her out for a wee plod.
When I got to the yard Lacy and Red were there. Oh yes we are going for a wee plod with friends. The other girls had been wearing rugs so were pristinely clean. I resembled a grubby bog pony, they never said anything but I felt rather aware of how grubby I was. I'm too old to care though.  
We had a lovely quiet plod, the weather was great. I was having a lovely time just mooching along. That young wee whippersnapper Lacey Mae kept stopping and telling me to hurry up. I'm nearly 20 years older than you young lady just remember that please. Be kind to old ladies huh? I'm now officially on holiday and I have all this grass.
When I got back to my field YES YES YES human had only gone and opened up the last bit of grass for me. I love grass.

No pockets

I've had a great week so far. On Monday I had the quickest visit in history from human. She was looking after the two little Grandfoals. They had been out for the day walking in Leicestershire and were very tired, so tired they fell asleep in the car on the way home. OMF was with them so she stayed in the car while human flew into my field. chucked some food in my bucket and a pile of hay in the box. That was it she was off. For my Grandfoals I will forgive her.
The rest of the week I have got to take human out EVERY day so far. I think she feels guilty about Mondays visit.
Yesterday Treacles human was away on holiday so Laceys' human asked to borrow my human to help bring the 3 girls in to have their pedicure. No problem. I'm borrowing Laceys human next week when mine is away.
I came in early with my human. Now us horses don't have pockets like humans do. Pockets are a great idea. I wanted to bring an emergency snack with me and I don't have pockets. I found a place to put it. Clever huh?

Thanks Doris

Well storm Doris has been and gone. She's a messy thing. Look what she left behind. The Stallion will have to come and take it down properly. He's a busy Stallion this week
end. Lots of jobs to do he could have done without this. Silly Doris.
Human was early this morning. She brought supplies, did cleaning, checked the SpyCam and rushed off. A friend she has known since forever is coming over to visit. So no time to ride or play with me.
She got home and got a phone call from friend, she's not coming any more. ** sigh**.

Doris came visiting

Storm Doris arrived with a whoosh. Well ok bit more than the whoosh. It didn't stop the badgers who have now worked out how the anti crow device works. My one regular badger has now turned into two. The storm didn't bother them in the least.

When human arrived she was nearly blown off her feet. Just as well she's carrying a bit of ballast. There are 5 of us in the whole field although we are separated by trick fencing. 4 of the 5 of us were sheltering in the hedges. Guess who was still out eating? Well of course it was me. A silly storm isn't going to come between me and my grub now is it?
Human brought supplies. Just as well The Stallion made my hay box or it wouldn't have hung around long. Human didn't hang around long either. She made the decision to leave the cleaning until tomorrow. Well ok human just this once but don't let it become a habit. That's twice this year already.

This mornings field visitor

More visitors. SpyCam has been busy. Human missed seeing Sammy Stoat by just 2 mins. He's like lightening. The Vid has him at full speed and slowed down.

Human was quite early this morning. She did the jobs and I came in with her. Little did she know at that point what was on the SpyCam. I got dressed and waited for my friend Red.
We went for quite a long plod today. We did only plod, the humans thought we ought to take it slow as we've not done a great deal lately. Red and I had other ideas. But no humans said take it easy girls.
When we got back I had a nice breakfast outside handsome Storms room. We stood around chatting for a bit then I went back to my field.
Hoping for same again tomorrow.
