So as I mentioned last week, I began receiving letters from the newest member of the family…. Enjoy!

Dear Grandma L
I had a real good day and discovered a lot of new things. Ma Kate eats grass, but I prefer a liquid diet at this stage. The grass tickles my stomach when I take a snooze. Chino is very inquisitive but Ma Kate is not too keen on having him around. She says boys are bad news and I should keep my distance until she has thought me more about them. I enjoyed feeding time because Mom got a special treat at supper time and she said Uncle Philip must carry on with this every afternoon! By the way, Uncle Philip wants to know what my name is and I was quite embarrassed when I realised I haven’t got a name yet, so please let Uncle Philip know what he can call me. I’m saying goodbye now because I still need to make a few discoveries before the sun sets.
Sleep well…. I know I’m going to!
Loving regards…. Your (nameless) good looking foal xxx
Ahhhh, sweet as pie and after a few different names were bantered about, we settled on Aisling, which means dream or vision in Gaelic.
