    The good, the stubborn and the annoying

    So, this is my journal about my three curious, stubborn, mind of their own, annoying horses. Think that sums them up completely.

    So an introduction of the main characters.

    Four Seasons
    Four is a 3 year old KWPN stallion. I bred him myself out of my KWPN mare, Ruby (sadly nolonger with us, due to rare desease). He is the funniest, weirdest and most lovable horse ever.

    (This is Four all dressed up! He usually doesn't look this charming)

    Breitlingh is a 7 year old KWPN mare. I bought her last year as a project and potential dressage horse... and yeah, she sure is a project! Her behaviour is, well, very very very very very very very mare-ish. Fan-tas-tic *sarcasm*
    But hey, the best horses aren't the easiest.

    Norman is my first pony. He is 20 years old and livin' the good life. I used to compete in dressage with him. Norman won every single competition.... still very proud of my golden oldie! Norman is now a grumpy old fart and very funny!

    I hope you all enjoy our adventures together. They're never boring... trust me.

    Let's break the ice by starting with today. Breitlingh is momentarily away. She is at my trainers, where I can get a lesson with her every day.

    I arrived at the stables and called Four and he, as usual, stopped grazing, neighed and ran like mad towards me. He is in a field with Billy, a QH, his best bud. They just love each other. Never fight over food.... amazing.....

    I recently fenced a bit of their field off, so the grass would grow on that bit and they can have a good munch on it next week. The grass has grown quite a bit and I keep checking it... so there I am standing on the otherside of the fence.... and Four is watching my every move... If he was human, we would totally be like this

    I felt so sorry for him watching me walk in the long grass, so being the softie I am, I grabbed a bit for him and gave it to him.... within two seconds, here came Billy. And what did Billy do? Eat the grass out of Four mouth. And Four just lets him....

    The evidence....

    So my stallion has to start and man up. He is the stallion around here and shouldn't let a little white guy boss him around....

    Today I visited my mar Breitlingh at my trainers stable. Since she has had her craniosacral treatment, she is a completely different horse! She used to be very stressy, mare-ish and moody. Now she is so loving and sweet! She is also moving much better and relaxes quicker. Wednesday I'll be riding her for the first time after her treatment.... Very much looking forward to it!

    Her problems were a tense jaw (explaines why she crossed her jaws when riding), swelling around the atlas, so the brain signals going past there, were sort of blocked and she couldn't tilt her pelvis, so collecting was very difficult for her.

    Will post a pic and a vid of her later on.

    And my trainer just called me, Breitlingh is showing signs of colic. Thinking of the worst, as had to put my beloved mare Ruby to sleep because of colic. :(

    Lunged Four today, he went really well. Now really starting to thrust from behind! And leaving for CHIO Aachen in two weeks. I one of Koos de .Ronde's grooms (Koos is a successful four-in-hand driver for thevNetherlands). 6 days of dressage, jumping, driving, eventing and beautiful weather! Perrrrrfect!

    Your horses are gorgeous! Is Norman a Haflinger by any chance? He looks very Haflinger-ish to me. Or Fjord. Either one.
    Subscribing. :)

    Thanks! Norman is a Fjord. He is wjat they call a Rodblakke (redbrown stripe through his mane, back and tail). I'll take a pic for you today. :)
