Following my supporting Kath on her horse shopping mission the other week, she kindly returned the favour and accompanied me to pick up my new little flock member this weekend.
Bartistown Ruby is a black blettet sokket shetland (or a little bandit as Chris described her). She has the most divine fine fleece and a beautiful little fluke tail. I can't wait to take her to a couple of shows this summer.
On introducing her to the others she seemed a little overwhelmed at first. But soon settled down and got to know her new field mates. Of course she is half sister to Rosy, Rebbecca and Rachel and I wasn't too surprised that she revealed that she did indeed recognise them. They soon split into their usual groups, but now they number five and four.
