Elz - I'm so glad you had a good time. Good for you for finding a sane 4 year old. Wanna give me some sanity for mine?
I'm terribly sorry about your mother though. :(
I think she will look like a different horse at the age of 7. WBs mature slowly and I think she will eventually grow into those legs! By the way, I think you make her look great, chin up doll.

Dont be sorry, im affraid thats life isnt it? Not always nice to us but we have to get with things! It was lovely seeing my dad taking an interest again though- even with the girlfriend in tow (who was actually getting into it also! bless her!)

Anyway i completely agree, she has tonnes of filling out to do!! Such a scrawny imp at the moment but then she still isnt out of ugly teenage years yet....hehe

I am desperately trying to stop myself from over jumping her (she is just so grown up i have to keep reminding myself she isnt even 4 yet!) A guy who took a fancy to her in the practice ring nearly fell over when i told him she wasnt even 4 yet! hehe I think she will have a lovely long hack tomorrow, get these fitness levels up lol.

Thank you for your comments though and i will hopefully have more pics soon.

Snap happy at the moment....

I just noticed how pretty the scenery is in the last picture above ^^
I love your attitude, by the way. Very positive -it's uplifting. My brother died when I was young so I have empathy for losing an immediate family member. And as far as father's g/f - convert her to the horsey ways! My mother's new fiance` just made me new wooden jumps. I'm working on converting him as well.
Not even part of the four year old club? Take it slow, although I know you know this. I feel as if it's a mandatory thing to say. It just hits a sore spot for me at times seeing young ones worked so hard. I'm dealing with my older horse's arthritis and am first hand experiencing deterioration of the joints. Take care of those legs now that you have the ability. My guy is holding up very well and has for a long time, but him being an ex-jumper and dressage horse at the age of 23 has put stress on his joints due to difficult work in the past. I often wonder what he did before I bought him. (Bought him at the age of 14 - I was... what, 10?) Any who, I'm sure you'll take fantastic care of all your horses. And I don't want to insinuate you are already working them too hard - just a sincerely concerned piece of advise.
I want to see pictures of her grow, too!

Thats it....! My coach wants to buy her from me and has said she will pay big time if i consider letting her go!

She said she has spent years trying to find a horse like her and not succeeded! She said she will be an absolute machine when she is older!

I said shes not for sale and now she wants to share her with me and buy out a half.....love my coach to bits but not sure if it will all and in tears....? These things do tend too!

Dont want to upset her by turning her offer down though!

Took the lil girl to a wide open field full of bright jumps and started her on some rustic cross poles in a treble (slowly building it up from poles on the floor) All she kept doing was flying changes on the spot, grunting and taking me towards the huge bright fences which were up at around 3ft6! I kept having to make her stop and chill as she was getting so excited it was unreal! (i have video of it all but have no idea how to download it to youtube or whatever so that you guys can see it-Help? PLEASE!?)

Elz x

Well, don't sell her unless you want too, I'm sure your trainer would understand if you didn't I have no idea on how to download it, sorry :(
