FAO Rosemary- Picture of Tinker
« on: July 26, 2008, 12:28:27 pm »
Hi Rosemary
Here is a picture of Tinker, He is supposed to be difficult to catch but he put his own headcollar on yesterday! I am lungeing/walking him everyday to get the weight off and I have had no sign of "riggy" behaviour, he seems very settled.

Hi, Rosey

He's lovely - if a little curvaceous!

I know how hard it is to keep these natives slim - I have a constant battle to keep the weight of Smokey and since he had a bout of laminitis in the spring, I'm desperate to do so. I've had to go back to bringing him in for part of the day even though he's on a pretty bare paddock.

Let us all know how he gets on with his work - someone else posted a wee while ago about working their pony. I think it's a great idea - gives them a sense of purpose! If we had more land, I'd have liked to have worked Smokey.
