Hope it all works out for you!

Yeah, Star's hilarious. 14.3hh at the very most, and she's convinced she's a racehorse. But her legs are all stubby, it's so cute! Just wants to go-go-go, has an awesome gallop in her and muscles everywhere, even when she's fat. She'll work for a good hour and a half and still want to go, she gets untacked and washed and she's off galloping again within 20 mins. Crazy thing!

Starry-boo! Super-sweaty after a good workout.

Star looks like a happy soul. And it sounds like Brock is going well!

Port Macquarie? That would be a big move!

Are you sure you don't want to move to the mountains and become my riding buddy?

I hope you're okay though. Like Doom said, whatever decision you make stand by it.

Nyx - That's actually my Wintec pro drressage saddle lol. It's the only saddle that fits her for that amount of time. We went 20 miles so need a good fitting saddle for that.

Hoping to pick up a few more at the sale next week but who knows if they will fit. My goal is to get an aussie with a horn. I'm not to keen on western saddles as they make my knees hurt, I like the freedom of english leathers.

I also wish you luck in your decision. They are never easy.

Nyx, a very wise woman told me last weekend that she's never regretted not giving someone more time to change. If she wasn't happy or wasn't being treated well in the relationship, it just wasn't worth it. She applies this to all relationships; significant others, friends, and clients [she is an instructor]. She said she has never looked back and thought, "I should have given that person more time to come around," and sometimes it's a blessing in disguise. *hugs*

I love the ponies that think they're going really fast, EHOD. My little one thinks she's the quickest little beast around when in reality... lol.

There are two other horses at my little barn besides my two. Paya is an 8ish year old mare... Appendix? No idea, really. Anyway, she's a pretty horse, built pretty well, good thick bone, strong back, good hoof, just FAT. She is very neglected by her owner, she is very, very rarely out, and when she is, she rides Paya into the ground and just puts her away. Paya started out being a bit of a jerk on the ground, pushy and disrespectful, and she got out once and didn't let me catch her, I had to use my horses to encourage her back in. But we've bonded a bit, I always take time to scratch her when I'm out with my girls. Anyway, my point it, I just got a better paying job and by next year, I think I may offer to buy Paya. This horse just has a lot of potential, and she'd be fun to but some work into and then rehome to a nice 4H home or some such, where she will get work and hopefully not so neglected. Obviously, this is a ways out, but I really do hope it works out. And posts like this are useless without pictures! Feel free to guess on her breed to, if you want!

Rosie is moving today!

She'll be just down the road! And in her own paddock so hopefully not so many injuries!

I'm a bit nervous about the floating, I am paying for someone to do it (cheapest way by far) but I always get so nervous, and Rosie has been such a terror at this last agistment place.

And I ordered a new rug online! Which is always exciting even though its a boring rug.

I like Paya!

My mother always told me that once you seriously think about ending a relationship, it's as good as ended. Might take a week, or a month or a year but once you've thought about it, it means things aren't working out, it means you're willing to leave, and eventually you will.

Its always been that way for me, when I just start thinking of ending it, it's like the beginning of the end and even if I decide not to then, the reasons that caused me to feel that way don't go away. So if you're having issues now, I'd think if you're ready to accept these both now and in future.

I'm not good at relationships though, I'm far too intolerant, so don't listen to a word I say! I know nothing!

And Poppy - does your saddle have stirrups?
