:agree: come on Katie :lol:

He was sold as 6 but looking at his paperwork he is seven, will be 8 on the 31st may.

I popped up to the field at lunch time and he just follows you around like a dog with none of the Moss paly & nipping :lol: Brett is still pissed off, jealous I think as when I can with out then knowing he is not too bad, as soon as I appear the chargeing and dirty looks start :roll:

Slightly less tension from Brett tonight but he is still not keen :lol:

I gave Tiky a small feed this evening, just a double handful of sugar beet with half a scoop of the vits and mins and a chopped apple, he really liked it apart from the apple but I think he was staring to get a taste for it :lol: I will slowly up it, he has grazed all day and he ate some hay while in the barn with me. I managed to do the BM 3/4 of the way on each side, got some licks and chews and couple of big neck shakes :thumbup: and lots of diving in the water bucket, which is a classic hide the release, happy about it as he has not drunk since he arrived.

I have done his weight and it is about 560kgs which for a 16.1hh with 10 ichs of bone is a bit light, I took some more pics to record the start of the journey

Just before Brettys teeth came out :roll:

:blink: Yep, G weighed 554kgs last time we went to the vet's and he's got about the same bone and is 15hh......

Tari was like that with apple and carrot when she first arrived, didn't take her long to cotton on :wink:

So Bretty is a green eyed monster then? :mrgreen:
