|Eleven horses in the truck and three in the trailer|
|Waiting anxiously for the first sight of the Boys|
|First glimpse of Aero. A bit rubbed on his ribs where he was leaning up |
against the doors, but otherwise no marks.
|Me and my "son." He looked tired.|
|Flurry was next, looking as cheery as ever!|
|This lucky horse was at journey's end. All of the others |
had at least another five hours to go
|Ahhh! That's Grass!|
|In the box and ready to roll once again.|
We turned them out and left them be, while I took the LSH and the Hyperterriers home and cleaned out the horsebox, then I went and just spent some time with them. It was nice. Aero was being needy and picking on Flurry a bit, but Flurry got a few cuddles from me anyway and we shared an apple. Alexandrine arrived then, to be introduced to her new tenants, and gave them a couple of carrots, too.
|Aero saying hello to the new neighbour|
|Flurry sneaking some hay while Aero wasn't looking - Aero is being quite bossy with him.|
|The boys and their abri (shelter) Aero is mostly lost in the shadows, |
the head on the right belongs to the neighbouring horse
What wonderful, kind, tolerant animals they are to accept it all with such grace and still be happy to see me when I visit them again.
I hope they like their new home.

Thanks to all at George Mullins for making it go so smoothly & thanks to the LSH for the unloading photos.
