    Well im Australian live in Victoria, have a lease horse who im so grateful to have. Dealing with an abscess at the moment and a tummy ache my poor horse has been looking depressed. I've been just spending time around him, instead of riding, rubbing his head and giving him finger tip massages :) so he should be better soon if his bandages are still on his foot, and the puss has soaked out on to the soaked epsom salt wool rapped in duct tape.

    Soo in about 6 months or so my parents farm will be sold and I have found a really cheap place to board my horse untill I get my own land and well I feel a great urge to get a second horse! :/

    I don't know if this is a good or bad thing lol.

    :( Can't visit Brock this weekend, my friend's car needs new brake pads. Gah I wish I could drive, but I can't - I just get a complete mental block when I'm behind the wheel, and freeze up. It's a 3.5 km walk from the nearest railway station but it's along a winding country road with no houses nearby and no verge, so I don't think it'd be very safe (even just the chance that I'd be collected by a car with all the blind corners). Boo :(

    You should learn to drive Doom.

    Just practice and practice and practice, even if at first its just sitting behind the wheel of a car and turning it on and off.

    I don't have access to a car, Saskia, or I would! Not sure how successful I'd be, though. Dad did give me driving lessons as a teen, but I just couldn't do it. I have no peripheral vision to speak of which spooks me bad enough, but I also have no spatial awareness - I bump into things just walking around. Thankfully Brock doesn't randomly crash into things, but cars don't have brains...

    Haha nyx, I would if I had a backyard! My studio flat is only just a bit bigger than his old stable LOL. Considering moving further out (but still near a station) and hopefully find a suitable space with room for the both of us.

    Edit: nyx, what would you be thinking of for a second horse?

    That would be handy :) I guess that's the tough thing about living in the city.would you ever move from the city?

    Umm I really don't know weather id want another breaker around 5yo or I was thinkin a nicley broke gelding. Really not sure! Lol but id like two horses to keep eachother company and so I can take my friends on trails with me, with out towing their own horse to me. :)

    If I could work remotely, yep!! In a few years time, hopefully.

    Yeah, a teacher and a learner - sounds like a good combo. Sometimes a more experienced horse might be nice to have too, so you can do stuff your filly won't be ready for even when she's broke.

    The city freaks me out big time lol I couldnt move there.

    That's pretty much what I had in mind!! After a bit of riding a green horse its nice to hop on a horse who knows whats going on and just take it easy :)
