With a beautiful chestnut mare called Twiggy……

What we’ve learnt looking after Twiggy the horse:

She likes being stroked and having her mane and tail de-tangled (you can get special brushes for this), Stella let us use her horse brushes, and a special de-tangling spray, but it’s better to spray it on the brush rather than the mane as it can scare the horse if they’re not used to it..

She likes the sound of your voice and to sing to her is very calming, she half closes her eyes and almost falls asleep her favourite song..  “I like you eyes, like your nose, like your fingers, like your toes…”

She prefers hay to frozen grass on the field in winter

She loves her oats, carrots and apples

She is very calm, even when you’re de-ticking her, it’s best to put her bridle on so she knows she needs to stand still

We’re going to miss you guys…..

  1. You never know, you might return next winter? Also, you’ve made some wonderful new friends in Bordeaux, (human and animal) xx

  2. I think she’s in love with you too and I’m sure all the babies are going to miss you very much! They aren’t going anywhere and you’re always welcome, fantastic housesitters!!XXX
