So, how many herbs can I stuff in my mouth before my friends come?! Yum, thank you humans x Horse News Fagan, who was rescued in February, has come on really well – he looks like a different youngster now. He’s still long-legged, though, so he’s going to be a horse, not a pony (and […]

Muffin’s Monthly Musings for June

Sharing my limelight this month with newbie Ruben. A very popular addition at Hope Pastures, I have to keep my eye on him to make sure he’s not diverting my public’s attention, but he’s really such a sweetie that I allowed him a sniff of ‘the special one’ (yes, me!!) as a little treat. Quite […]

Muffin’s Monthly Musings for April

Well it has to be said that this is a first – this month’s Musings are being sent to you via a tablet (thankfully not one the humans have to force me to take). This is because the tapping human, who helps me pen my inspirational thoughts (obviously, hooves are a bother for this)  is […]

Muffin’s Monthly Musings for February

1st March?!! What happened to the rest of February? There’s barely been time for me to put my hooves up after my January Musings – I may have to make a call to Mule Line, due to my excessive workload. I have to confess to having been caught on the backhoof here (28 days!?), but […]

Muffin’s Monthly Musings for January

Sad, sad, sad news this month. Normally I can keep my spirits up, but this month we’ve had to say goodbye to one of my best and oldest (in both senses of the word) friends, Sparky, and I can’t tell you how much I miss him. It’s made me very grumpy. The first day he […]
