Welcome, Hunter65! Duke is beautiful. I always had a feeling that there would be a Percheron in my life one day...

What a variety of horses we all have!

Hunter - what a difference a few groceries and a couple of years makes. You would never know he is the same horse.

Well, today Em and I re polythened the Eden project. I collected a load of potting compost and am ready to start planting.
Today the mist lifted mid morning and we actually saw the sun. Didn't do any heavy gardening today, tomorrow we will wire up the fruit canes, seed plant, get some more manure on the front garden, and start setting up the canes for the runner beans, broad beans, peas and mange tout.

At the end of the veggie garden we have a chicken run and will also be moving the Khaki Cambell ducks in there so they are breeding pure and we can hatch some eggs. I like the ducks and hens to go into the garden to eat off the slugs and snails. I let the hens and rooster through today and they thought they had died and gone to heaven they were having a party scratching and searching for the slugs and snails. Unfortunately they cannot stay in there all summer because they scratch over where the seeds are and the ducks eat everything as it grows!

I have trouble knowing what day of the week it is let alone the date and didn't realise that already we are halfway through March - time flies when you are busy!

I feel bloated. Em went into town to drop a friend off and bought fish and chips, there was a heck of a plateful and I couldn't waste any. Half would have filled me but I pigged the lot and enjoyed every mouthful!

Off to have a shower and then to bed.

Yes sometimes, I still ride with some of the people from my old barn. Poor guy has a huge tumor growing just above his hoof now. Apparently its not cancerous but surgery could be dicey because of the location. I believe he still gets ridden once in a while.

I have every one of my breyers too. I bought most of mine from an antique store.

County Woman, I'm sure a horse will come your way soon enough if you want one bad enough. It took me over a year to find my Jesse. I wish I would have looked longer, but he is 90% of what I wanted so I'll take it. I am boarding him right now at my mother-in-law's place which was a huge mistake. We are looking for a farm, but they are few and far between.

This is exactly why I didn't go back to jumping but went into Dressage instead...I prefer the horses hooves to stay on the ground!
