Just some miscellaneous images from the last weeks...
Lily and Mucki, nosing over the fence, greeting visitors
. I often hear from other boarders that especially Mucki is very curious about everything that goes on in the barn. Since the grooming area is right in the middle their living room, Mucki can inspect every newcomer. On Fridays, there is a group of children coming with their parents and Mucki is already famous among them for greeting them in his polite gentleman way.

Late autumn on the pasture...
Yesterday, Lily earned her very first money!
We have two girls now who come for "riding lessons" every four weeks or so. Of course it's not riding lessons at all, but rather playful interaction with Lily
. And when they are carried around by Lily, the main focus is on the mutual connection and feeling how the movement of their two bodies influence each other. Lily is absolutely perfect for that job, because she gives such clear feedback
The first lesson she taught the girls was that she has a mind of her own and is not always in the mood for being a calm children's pony
. So Anna told the girls to stand aside, while she set Lily free and played some wild games with her
Afterwards, Lily was still excited and overzealous, but really nice...
Of course Lily had to be adorned in Christmas fashion first. She also had golden stars on her body, which can't be seen here:
