When the horse trailers start pulling in the drive way and we hear the nicker of the horses, we know it’s that time of year when our Forrestel ponies return home from their winter leases!

I am always so happy to see our ponies arrive home safe and sound. Thank you to Smith College, where all these guys spent their winter months. They all had fun working in IEA and IHSA lessons and shows.

In the next few weeks the rest of the ponies will slowly start to return. We will keep you updated! Look out for other blogs coming that will also be introducing our New Forrestel ponies who have joined us…..

After two days of heavy rain and a surprise snow storm, Friday morning’s chores were a little different to usual.

Three of the ponies who live in our back pasture; (also known as our “Fatty” Field)
Millie,

Blondie,

and Kayla,

were stranded by a mass of water…..

Not to worry though, that’s were one of our loyal Kyack’s came in handy!

Kat jumped in a kyack and paddled over to check on them.

They didn’t seem to mind the wet weather all that much. They were happy to stay under their field shelter and munch on their tasty round bale of hay.

Now that was definitely a first- seems that all those canoe trips down the old orchard creek set us up with some great paddling skills!
