Felix keeps on walking!

We have been persevering with the halter training of the three young boys this week. Jenson (black), named after a certain Mr Button (because he sped around from the minute he was born) was a natural. Fidel (fawn) likes to show off so he soon started enjoying himself and was prancing up and down the lane. However, Felix (white) was a different matter. When Amanda came to help on Monday, we failed miserably. Felix went in to coma mode, eyes glazed and we didn't get passed the starting line. However, today Robyn managed to get him up and down the lane without even a pit stop. We have now renamed him Scumacher...lets hope he remembers what to do tomorrow. Once the boys have perfected their halter skills they will be going on the for sale list as a package. They absolutely adore each other and I wouldn't want to separate them. Plus they look rather cute together being black, fawn and white...will I be able to do it?

I had the vet out today to take a look at Willow's foot. She took a swab and gave a shot of amoxycillin, with another dose to be given in 3 days. In the meantime we are to carry on with the daily cleaning and an antibiotic spray. Lets hope it heals soon.
