Hello from Ireland! I'm new here!

Hello everybody!

I live in Ireland, originally from Canada but apparently Irish men are VERY charming

I'm a mom of two kids - a 4 year olds girl and 7 month old boy. I have an Irish sport horse gelding named Bandit and we're just after buying my daughter a 11hh pony - don't ask what breed because he doesn't know himself.

With the kids I don't get as much time with Bandit as I'd like. I keep him in a fantastic yard with walker, gallops, ect. And the people are amazing - he's on DIY livery yet he's always mucked out when I get there and when I'm in work he's fed in the evening. The pony is going to come live with us at home for awhile, we only have 3/4 of an acre so not enough space for Bandit but will keep our pony going until summer comes when he will move out to the yard so she can ride with me.

Look forward to chatting with everybody

Welcome to the forum!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Thanks all, Henia - I have a picture of Bandit on my horses section. No pics of the new pony yet as we're only collecting him on Saturday and the quick snap I took at the old owner's leaves alot to be desired - he will be a "work in progress" for the next few months :)

I get the priviledge of riding my friend's Irish Draft. He is so much fun to ride, so now I appreciate the Irish horses more and more.

Welcome
