Happy Feet

By which I mean happy hooves of course!

Farrier came today for his second visit. The first was when I was in a sling and drugged up like a sky rocket, so today was more 'normal'. I am soo pleased that I have, through recommendation, found a good farrier! That was one of my worries before I moved - we do get reliant on our farriers don't we; the spoken rule to "always look after your farrier" resonates around every yard and horsey home in the UK. Of course as a lot of our riding involves road work on tarmac roads, we need those shoes in tippity top condition!

Anyway, I was very happy that my boys were 100% better behaved than last time, that their feet were again super healthy, and that I like my farrier

New Saddle! Noooooooooh Sadddddddlllllllle!

Oh oh I am so excited! My new saddle for Riley has arrived.. in it's box......from Indiana. Let me tell you, for a girl from the UK that is VERY exciting.

I'm going to open it very slowly to enjoy the moment.

(I have already fitted Riley's new bridle to him - we're almost ready to go )

So long no blogging!

Isn't it weird, I just haven't got round to making any entries for some time now. I feel vaguely guilty - as thought I've failed on my commitment. And also a little guilty that my adoring public have not had my journal entries to lighten their lives........

So, in summary:

- Ridden Riley three times, the third time I went up to my neighbours house which was the first time he went off the property. More on that in another entry.

- U-kon broke out of the stable when Riley and I went walkabout, illustrating perhaps a tad bit too reliant on Riley for my liking...!

- I have launched the school Fundraiser night at West Edmonton Mall Waterpark (tick on fronts of sociability, community volunteeringility, personal organisational skills, and learning that in Canada there is letter shaped paper not A4 shaped paper. That's why my printer doesn't print quite like my laptop says it should then....)

- Snow has dumped a number of times and I am a top snow plougher now

- my winter wardrobe is expanding rapidly

- we went for ski-ing lessons at Rabbit Hill and had a fantastic time!!! New family sport launched successfully :)

- I had a phone call from the school that son had hurt his elbow...... cue trip to hospital and a BROKEN ELBOW!! Oh, that's just not fair.

So.......................... family skiing career is put on hold, as are skating lessons, sledging, and climbing things. Darn it. But we should be back on track in January.

What an adventure you've had. Truly amazing, to manage all that & stay sane. So sorry to hear about the broken bones for you & your boy. You are very organized & a blessing to your family, for sure. Really enjoyed reading your story & hope to see more from you. Thank you so much for sharing.

The boys needed a friend to keep them company when I take one out....



He's verrrrrry cute



Ukon was overjoyed to move from bottom of the ladder to one up from the bottom! Arthur is a laid back little donk who gives as good as he gets
