About six sheep have moved into Wolfie's field, from a neighbouring field, and Wolfie thinks it's great. He spends his time herding them around the field, but unfortunately the sheep don't feel quite the same way about their new friend! When they eventually get fed up of him, and disappear through the fence back into their own field, he looks so disappointed. I don't think he can understand why they don't want to play with him. I haven't been doing much as the weather has been awful.

Winter sucks!

It's so difficult trying to get anything done when it's constantly dark, cold and raining. I feel as though all I do is muck out and feed Wolfie, and never actually spend any time with him. During the really stormy weather last week, the window in his stable blew in. Luckily it was perspex and not glass, but he got a real fright. I think he must have thought his number was up. He's been really spooky ever since. He barged out of his stable the other morning and took himself off on a tour of the yard at a flat out gallop. He seems to be a bit more settled this week. I can't wait for the clocks to change, more daylight and the sun!!

Day 1 in the Wolfie House

Wolfgang (or Wolfie to his friends) is a Highland cross part bred TB. He's had a pretty horrendous start in life. Wolfie came to me in early May this year and ended up having surgery and a spent a month recovering in Glasgow vet school. It has taken a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get him back on his feet and healthy again. Finally he is in fantastic health and is proving to have a very cheeky personality. Throughout everything he has been through, Wolfie has shown great courage and heart and has overcome it all. He has had to learn and experience some things at an alarming rate, but he really has taken it all in his stride. Wolfie will be three in April and after this I will start to back him. I haven't really started anything with him yet, having decided to let him be a baby, play in the field and enjoy himself after everything he has been through. I'm looking forward to the challenge of starting him. He is very clever and also has a bit of a temper on him, so I'm sure it will definitely be interesting and challenging.

This blog is to keep a diary of Wolfie's milestones. I will get some better pictures posted of him soon.
