I went out to see Belle today, She was very happy to see my
While I was grooming her Marc cleaned out her stall
I then went to lunge Belle and that went fine. I lunged her both
Ways for about 20 minutes then I took her and let her graze for about 45 minutes
Here are a few pictures of us
Every day she is getting more used to Marc

Great visit with Kes today! When I arrived to start our rehab routine, she got really vocal, she recognized me! Also, today was the first morning since the day I picked her up that her fetlock looked normal, no swelling, so things are improving.
The bute really seems to be helping things along with the Surpass cream.

Cacowgirl an Susan- yes we are getting a chance to bond through all this, she seems to understand that I am caring for her and it almost seems like she is looking forward to my visits. Can't wait to ride her soon, but I can tell she's going to be a hotter horse after all this rest and the weight she has put on! I do like a hotter horse, as long as they mind their manners.

Pat- welcome, your horse is gorgeous, what is he?

CW- Belle is so cute, I really like her face. And your smile says it all!

Foxhunter- you must have an incredible amount of patience to take all these pups on, I bet they are so cute though!

Belle does seem to love my attention I give her she has a cute face
I noticed she has a roman nose a bit
And she seems to be putting on weight too
She just needed to be loved

Cw-you look so happy when you are with Belle-so glad you found her!

WG-glad to hear Kestrel continues to improve & the bonding is going well. I, too, like a bit of a hotter horse, as long s they respond to the aids & don't get fractious.

Welcome to Pat & that lovely palamino.

Foxhunter-Our pup is a hound/Shepherd mix & just the sweetest gal-we are so glad we were able to do all the surguries she needed when we "acquired" her. She has been well worth the investment.

I used to like a hotter horse as well. That is why I like Arabs and Thoroughbreds

I do not think that Belle needs much more weight, She is unfit and when you start riding her she will begin to muscle up and look better for it.

Come this time of the year my horses are very fit after a seasons hunting. Most people would call them thin as you can feel their ribs and see the back ones. They are well muscled though.

I dislike fat horses, have dealt with to many problems with them from it!

Running late today, over slept not like me at all.

Back to gardening - weather is dry (ish) the odd shower but not the heavy rain. Spent yesterday digging and planting. Have three beds to dig over. Stuff I planted earlier is barely showing and as there could still be frosts most is still in the greenhouses.

I am no real gardener although I have dabbled for a long time. When I am not sure about the veggies, I call the old boy, Ron, who worked here for years. He puts me right. He is a wonderful man, still comes up here twice a day although he is not well enough to actually work. He doesn't miss much, but that is good because he did so much up until last yea. He wanders around and then might say to me - the ditch is not flowing well, needs clearing.

Better go and get on, pups are 'singing', all out of tune unfortunately.
