Ok, not had a great time since my last post. Petra had a rear shoe that was very loose, so couldn't do anything in the show on sunday. Was gutted, but I managed to get her shod on Tuesday so thankfully I've been back in the saddle since then.
Ellie and Willow did great in the show. She got 6th in Bonny Pony out of a class of 18, and 4th out of a class of 16 in the under 16's equitation. :o don't quite know how she managed that, but the judges were impressed with her riding, position and rising trot! Ahhh Im so proud.
Meg is totally fed up. Only time she looks cheery is when I'm grooming her or leading her down the lane. Poor baby. :( The stud advised me not to ride her for the first three and last three months of pregnancy, so she has another 3 weeks to go, before I can start riding her. It doesn't help that her and petra are next to each other, so when I get petra out to ride, she looks at me longingly. :( Probably me just feeling sorry for her, but she's not quite the same, and she does keep nickering to me! Haven't quite worked out how I'm going to divide my love and attention between four when the foal comes next year?!? Think I will be rather a very busy bee.
