Think the sunshine we had today has gone to Remi's head. He was seen playing, spinning, leaping and cavorting in the field today. All by himself, when there was no wind. Leap, jump, spin etc. etc.
He is full of himself and determined to express his opinions and grow

Remi in February! Today he tried to drag me into someone

He wasn't at all pleased to be turned back out again tonight, he has decided he is an indoor horse at the moment. The field is relatively dry, and he has a large feed and adlib haylage in the field. Mac on the other hand still doesn't like his stable, and wants to be an outdoor horse
