Welcome to the thread frlsgirl!
Drafty - delighted Aires went so well. Hope the bit of time you got to spend with him helped clear your head a bit.
MHF - Shortly after taking up role as stable manager for a NH pretraining yard, I was handed a little (I swear she was about 14hh) chesnut 3yo filly. Chrome all over, knee high stocking and a big white face. I thought she was a stunner... it was only then I was informed of the "red headed b*tch" theory behind chesnut mares
In racing circles here, they dislike them because they think they have a fiery temperament and are harder to deal with. I hadn't a clue, but the majority of trainers I now know will avoid them like the plague. I still have a soft spot
I'm LOVING having the horses so close to home. I'm calling in every evening, bringing them in from the field, giving a quick brush and a feed pot full of apples and carrots. I didnt know it, but we have flood lights over our riding "arena"... which isn't an arena but it'll do the job :) so yesterday myself and DD hopped on for a quick spin
We spent all of 20 min with them today.. just a quick rub and some snacks but so relaxing for me. Weather forecast is horrific for the weekend... so my plan to head out for a hack Sat/Sun may be on hold
Busy busy working away, bank holiday here this weekend. For most people that's a good thing... the fact that my 2nd job is in a pub means ill be working extra rather than less!! *sigh* I keep repeating "think of the paycheque... think of the paycheque... " to myself lol
