New Herd Members

Two new members joined the herd at the beginning of January, Prince a palomino Welsh Cob cross Quarter Horse and his half sister Flicka, a Quarter Horse cross Shetland.  Both have settled nicely with Prince having a nice quiet calming energy while Flicka has a mischievous, yet fun energy the children seem to relate too.  

As we have a large herd here at BEAT-UK we didn't wish to rush things for Prince and Flicka and so let them settle into their new environment before introducing them to the rest of the herd.  One young girl likened it to being adopted and/or fostered where Prince was adopted as he was brought and so chosen to be with the herd, whereas Flicka was on loan and so 'fostered' with a hope to 'adopt'.
