Hey guys :) I haven't been on for a few days because I haven't had time! Mum had a guest who has little kids and so I spent all my time babysitting :/ I love kids, don't get me wrong, but it was intense!
The mare I was riding for her owner, that went back to her owner, is coming back to me again. The incredible yo-yo horse :/ it's very frustrating because when she goes back she invariably loses weight (due to owner's daughter refusing to feed her) and then I have to get her back up to weight again, which means a loopy horse while I'm having to feed her up to make her gain weight, and when she's in ideal condition she's a lot more energetic and forward than she is when she's skinny (obviously)... but I'll admit I did expect owner's daughter to just continue on refusing to feed her, so I did expect she would probably come back again. Just frustrating because I was "reliably" informed she wouldn't come back to me, so I started looking for another project, only to have to let all these owners I've made contact with down because Violet's coming back.
I'm still going to keep looking though because as much as I like Violet I hate flatwork and that's all she can do atm with her current level of education... would rather get something that has the flatwork but needs work on jumping.
