So there was I cooking dinner at just before 6pm this evening when I get a phone call from Mrs Wiz saying

'dishup dinner, put it in the oven and come up the stables' - then another 'now'. So I went as instructed, and I found we had got a baby horse in the yard - now this is strange as none of our mares were in foal!

Two car drivers had found this little foal at the side of the road about 300m from a busy railway level crossing and main road, they knew where our stables were and Mrs Wiz was there at the time so the little foal was stuck in the boot of a car and brought down to our stables. Lots of phone calls later, none of the other yards in our area were missing a foal and so we reported it to the local police 'horse watch' scheme and they arranged for a vet to come out to see it. It was in a pitiful state and could hardly stand, weak from lack of its mothers milk. It could not have been there long as it would have been hit by a car.

So he has now been named 'Lucky Star' and taken to the local horsepital for the night and given some milk and anti-biotics, the vet said he was about three days old.

So then we could finish having (dried-up) dinner, our 6'oclock evening meal finally eaten at 11 o'clock.

We get quite a few stray horses and old/retired greyhounds, here on Anglesey. They are brought over by Irish tinkers who just abandon them and get the first boat back to Dublin. I know several people who have got the greyhounds from local rescue centres and they make wonderful, gentle pets.
