My little trail horse

Going in the trailer went ok but getting out is just so tramatizing. She has such an issue stepping down.

Poppy, I used natural white clay. I just made it too liquid, so it didn't stick too well to his coat. Had fun all the same.

And Lizzie is so cute!

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Its great that it worked out alright in the end!

So I went horse stuff shopping today, had to head down the mountain to be hay which is annoying. I wanted to buy one of those small hole hay nets but it was $27! I can't justify that much for a hay net. So I bought some rope and am just failing at making my own. Its never wide enough and to make it wider I need bigger squares which defeats the entire purpose.

I should have just bought the haynet.

Lol at least you had a crack at it! I imagine it would be very hard. After spending all weekend out with the horses and giving my aunt a few riding lessons my face is as red as a beetroot lol. Stupid sun! But had a great time all up. Except for the fact my tenants have been sneakily turning off my horses water to the trough (controlled by a float) I think they may be a little bit simple. The water is bore water fed up to the tanks by a generator that I fill up and the water is pressure fed to the troughs and somehow they think they own it.. Bloody looneys.

Saranda - your horse looks awesome, such a poser haha

Poppy - is that a treeless saddle and your girl is looking good! :)

Me and the other half are going through a very rough stage, he hurt me very bad because of his own family issues.. Hard to explain but I have a day off work and a big day with my horse tomorrow to make one big decision. >:[

Those big decisions are hard eh, nyx? Just made mine, toughest decision of my life. Weigh up what your risking, the likelihood of it happening and the benefits of each decision. Decisions always affect so many people but ultimately you can't please everyone and shouldn't try. Do what you feel is right, listen to your heart and your head, sleep on it a few days and stick by the decision. Good luck

Must say, I was soooo proud of both Brock and Star yesterday!!

Brock was a perfect gentleman (apart from getting a little too aroused when Star started flirting). He patiently let me braid his mane, which took forever because I'm so bad at that kind of thing, trotted up nicely when led and was very polite all round. I also took him over and through poles and other obstacles in hand in preparation for next week's work on the lunge and under saddle.

Star jumped a two-jump course for the first time, the girl who leases her was so pleased. And she went up a step in height today and managed to jump both no problem. She hasn't refused once, even when she doesn't quite get the stride or angle right, she just loves doing it so much and is a gutsy little thing.

Anyway just thought I'd share my delight (even though I don't ride Star much anymore, I love her to bits and get very proud when she does stuff).

He's probably just in a bit of shock is all. I know I'd be the same in that position. Can he move up to PMQ with you? Or will it have to be long-distance?

Ah, Star isn't mine, she's my friend's - we kind of banded together and became barn buddies at the last place we were at, because we were being picked on by the same people lol. And we used to share stable duties so we could both have every other morning off, and have back-up when we were sick or on holiday. And Brock kind of fell in lust with Star, who's a terrible flirt. I used to ride Star a fair bit when she'd get headstrong. Still go for the occasional ride, nice to be on a (purebred) TB again sometimes!
