Barney Leaves!…………Wally Arrives!
There has been a loss to my herd. Barney, the Black Cob, has found a new home in the Galloway Hills! He has gone to live with Linda & Tom, near Corsock. They farm cattle and sheep, and Barney will become the family horse! I am sorry to see him leave, but I do know he will be very well looked after!!
Tom and Linda, together with their two boys, have gone a bit “Green”! Barney will have some work to do, and rounding up the aforesaid cattle and sheep is his new job!
Tom Junior, has his eye on the new addition! Last time I spoke to Linda, she said, Tom junior was in the field, teaching Barney the rules of soccer!!Lol!
This is “Wally!”
He is a Cob, a so called Gypsy Cob. Note his Blue eye? Hence his name Wally! (we call an eye like that a “Wall” eye.)
He arrived yesterday, a Colt, 14 months old, probably make around 14-15hh. He`s a bit thin, needing some quality food, and some TLC!
Nice little chap, and with promise, no bad manners and with some presence! He will become a riding horse, with good manners, and he is already showing a calmness not usually seen in one so young! Worming today, and vet check! More to follow!
