Bugsy, our Shetland pony, started his new job yesterday - delivering hay. After a quick brush and pedicure, he got dressed in his klibber and carried two hay nets down to the hay boxes. He can't manage the knots, so I had to unload smiley

Today, he did a double shift - two hay nets to the hay boxes and two hay nets to the ewes' hayrack.

I'm working on a way for him to carry layer pellets to the hens.

He really seems to enjoy his job. We bought the klibber last year from www.journeyman-leather.co.uk, with the intention of collecting seaweed from the beach, for the garden. Now we've got going, it's likely that Bugsy will be doing a lot more carrying - especially if I can find a way to tie him up outside the Co-op smiley
