Haha ponies are always adorable and that includes Merrylegs hehe. They look like they had fun riding her.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

so today i decided to long rein Merrylegs. even though i've only lunged her a few times she took it completely in her stride. After about 5 minutes she understood what was required of her and done her lesson like a little trooper. So proud of her.
I can't wait to go tack shopping for her. As i am a little disorganized, in-fact i don't even have a decent breaking roller. i've been using an elasticated surcingle roller and a hand me down pony bit. (last pony i owned that was any way near her size was our family pony jasper when i was 5)

so i decided i'd go back out and pamper merrylegs as i've never fully given her all my attention (usually my nephew is there whenever i deal with merry and i'm far to wary of how he acts around her, he's in his terrible two's) Needless to say despite her grumpy face she enjoyed it and stood like a good girl, even let me brush all the way down her back legs with out her trying to move away from me.
I attempted to thin her mane out... then gave up after a tooth on my comb snapped and i hurt my finger boohoo

i know it's not horse related but we got a new kitten at the weekend, she's a black tabby and her name is minx, she's just under 6 weeks and she's just a little monster! i have a feeling she'll help jynx keep the rodents under control quite well!
Jynx currently HATES her, however he should get used to her eventually.

Thanks, i can't wait till Christmas as she should hopefully be getting kitted out with tack and such! I'm still so impressed with how well im getting on with her! She no longer needs a long rope to catch her in the feild!

So merrylegs' tack has finally been ordered! totally excited about it!
Also long reined her last week for like 3 miles and she never put a foot wrong, apart from getting a bit spooky at some other horses galloping about in mud.
but she soon settled down after it.

I also got my treeless saddle i ordered for whiskey and where the white hairs on her back were from the ill fitting saddle are starting to fade ( i'm hoping it's a good sign, although it could be due to her getting her winter coat) It's so comfy yet it's made me realize how un-balanced i am as a rider O_o

Also came to the conclusion that Merrlegs needs interaction from other people as she doesn't seem to trust other people as much as me.
My step dad keeps urging me to put Whiskey in foal as he says " She's getting on, would you not like to have another horse from her to remember her by, nothing lasts forever stef" Yeah thanks for that Sgt. Sunshine! I have thought about it, but i think i'd maybe consider it a bit later on (she's only 11 now)

Pictures! Actually looking forward to the winter, it might shave some weight off of them!

only a WEE bit fat...

Lunging whisks to get some of her hyperness away

love this picture, Merrylegs is all like "whats this, its like a little person?!"


Mason trying to catch merrylegs... she's having none of it!
