Please say hallo to Blue


After my last fall (and I really hope it was my last) I finally decided my family were right, and it was time to sell Fairfax and buy a quieter model. It was a very hard decision, but Fairfax has gone to a lovely new owner, and I have  bought Bleu Harvest Moon (aka Blue). He's sweet and good natured, and I'm very lucky. He kindly consented to pose for this photo.

  1. He has a kind look about him (as far as I, who is not very familiar with horses, can say). I hope we'll get to see more of him.

  3. He's got a "Come on Frances, let's go for a ride" look about him. He looks like a wise old boy.

    1. Thank you Teresa. He's got a very sweet face, a bit like a pony. How are all your animals?

  5. Perhaps Blue is a bit older than Fairfax and more comfortable in his own skin with nothing to prove?

    1. They're the same age, but one has grown up and the other hasn't!

    2. As my mother used to say, "Handsome is as handsome does."

    1. His official colour is dun, Adrian. But that sounds incredibly dull!

  10. I haven't been on Blogland for a bit so I didn't know about your fall. Hope you're okay now. Sorry to hear about Fairfax but I'm sure you've done the right thing and Blue is gorgeous. Enjoy each other.

  11. Hello Blue.
    I sincerely hope that you have no more unwelcome trips to the ground. I wondered at one time if you were trying to break some record or other as well as your body.

    1. Thank you, Graham. I've only fallen off the last horse once in nearly three years (I don't count the time when he fell over).

  12. Blue looks lovely. I hope you'll both be happy and that Fairfax enjoys his new home.
