From Cornwall, with love.

My name's Toni, from Cornwall (U.K.). I'm sure you've heard of it - the place with only one season (the Wet Season). Anyway, I'm 18 years old, at college studying Biology, Psychology and Physical Education.

I hate tea.

I once had an OTTB called Seamus Crimin - who was a whopping great 17hh horse. He was my everything, and I loved that horse so much. His heart of gold and great, un-Thoroughbred temperament helped us all overlook his clumsiness. He was a very forgiving horse and let me just climb up on top of his back in the stable and flop over him. I was still a novice rider then, and I had learned a lot with him - such as to ensure my feet aren't near his because (funnily enough) big horses weigh more than you think they would! Well, he was the most important thing in my life, and I'll stop going on about him now - though rest assured you'll hear a lot about him in the future!!!

I hate tea.

Two years after Seamus' passing, I now own a 10hh Shetland thing... she's called Merry Legs, is very fat, and is just a little cutie!!! I don't ride her - though I do find myself just sitting on her back when I have time. I've taught her to bow down, and now does that instead of picking up her feet, the daft horse. She was given to me for free because the owner no longer wanted her, and was about to send her off to the meat-man, so I feel happy that I've saved her from that, and given her a happy life. I still don't know what I'm going to do with her, but I'll never be rid of her. I'm going to start getting her more fit, and more trusting of people, because she's very nervous around people - especially small kids - and I need to help her out of that. Merry is another horse I could go on for hours about too.

I hate tea.

I'm also helping to bring on a beautiful black Welsh Cob called Taffy. She's only two, so still in need of maturing, but overall she's very bright and fun. I'll probably tell you more about her when I learn more of her - but I've not had her that long.

Um... that's probably about it. I love sharing stories about horses, and hearing funny things that other horses have done with or without a rider.

Welcome! I just returned from UK-a few days in London, and then to the sis-in-laws in Devon, which I loved. What a beautiful place! We did see some sun, but then-the sky opened up. THe train tracks were even flooded to get back to the airport!

PRetty, but too wet for my taste!

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

A warm and hearty welcome to the forum! I enjoy coffee in the morning, and hate tea as well :) Merry Legs and Taffy sound so enjoyable and sweet- The very best of luck with them!
