Stan, would have been funnier if you had worn nothing! The countryside could be in the UK, not only the terrain but also the wet.

Susan Well done - that is certainly a cluster of blues.

CW I do not envy you moving. It is so disruptive! Good luck in your new home.

The sheep all had their haircut today, they were also wormed and had a pedicure. They were not happy about it at all.
I kept them in Friday and Saturday so they were dry. Just as well, we had 1" of rain Saturday night.

I slept very badly last night, don't know why but I was still awake at 4 a.m. So, I fell sleep on the sofa about 7 - woke at 11.30 and am about to go to bed proper!

My new horse Trooper

So the weekend was fantastic - weather was perfect both days - Mid 80s and sunny. Saturday flew to breakfast, then up to the ranch and started my lease on Trooper, a 16.2 Chestnut QH Gelding, former police horse. He's such a great boy. I rode him around in the arena, then went out on a nice trail ride. Sunday we tried on a new bit which he liked much better than the old harsher one, then went out on the trails and as usual he behaved beautifully. Hope everyone else had a great weekend!

Pics attached - sorry for the relatively poor quality. Next time I need to get someone else to take some of me riding.

John

John - Trooper is lovely, and how great that you get to get out on some trails with him! I love his name, him being ex police and all...

Thanks With Grace - I think he likes getting out of the ring. He's especially fond of running up one of the longer hills (can't say I mind much either!).
I was also able to confirm that he enjoys both carrots and oats and honey granola bars.

I'm not sure if I am being got at, or not. The weather was cold, windy and wet. If I had been wearing nothing but my birthday suit under the coat and leggings what an embrassing position to be in, if you get my drift. Now if I have offended any one I am sorry but it needed to be replied to.

John, great photos its not easy hanging onto the horse and trying to get a good shot.

The horse would be ideal with the training it has recieved, what a great grounding working in the police force. It would be worth a good price where I come from.

Cheers
Stan
