Hi from across the pond to all the newcomers.
CW I think that lessons are the way to go - someone will assess and help you with your riding and they will be able to find you a suitable horse. Pity you aren't here! I have a lovely ex international polo pony that would do you down to the ground, bomb proof, kind and fun to ride.
Well, at last the sun is shining. The weather is on the change (or so they say) Wettest June on record in the UK. Some parts of Wales had a months rain in 24 hours. Walking across the front paddock and it is squealtchy Back in March it was rock hard.
Em went out and bought some geese. They are young birds and here to eat the grass in the chicken pens, they are doing a great job too. I have never had geese before and have to laugh at them. Em has been bringing them in and out but last night the task fell to me.
They were waiting to come in but unsure of me. You have to talk to them and they talk back. They started to follow me but some went into a stable instead of their pen. They hang around by the feed bins and talk all the time and then follow to their pen. All the time they are chatting away.
As the weather has improved I want to go spray some weeds and also spray the garden as slugs, snails and the baddies are out in force.
The dogs all need a bath in Neem Oil, this keeps the fleas and ticks off them, I use it on the birds to stop red mite.
It really is powerful stuff. All natural which I like. Ideally I use it on the garden once a week but with the wet I haven't for a couple of weeks.
Some evenings I go out and collect the slugs and snails, put them in a bucket with a lid and then feed them to the birds in the morning, shows what an odd person I am!
Off to get some work done.
