Ha ha, I admit to joining the ranks of writers who have never finished a novel. My best effort had about ten chapters, a young adult, fantasy novel, planned to be the first in a trilogy. I password protected it and... lost the password!! Doh! I kind of gave up after that.
Mulefeather- I do the same thing when down or depressed, I eat anything in sight! I'm four weeks into a diet, have lost 5kg but I've been slacking this weekend, so back into it tomorrow!
I told our instructor/trainer that we want to take Rose home, at least for a few months. I was really dreading telling her, but it went quite well. She reckons that she can have Rose trailering ok in a couple of weeks, so I've given her a three week deadline. She will also have DD riding Rose on lead line or lunge rope by then. Amazing what the right motivation can do! She then gave DD an awesome lesson, best one in ages, working on her trot and canter leads.
I've just bought a herbal mix to try on Rose too, to see if it takes her edge off. It can take a while to work, so I will start it after we get her home. Anyone tried herbs to calm a horse? It's got verbena, valerian, chamomile, raspberry leaf and hops I think, if I remember right. I can check if anyone is interested.
