    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.

    Ok, I have got to tell you about today. Ellie was jumping! AND fell off! Willow put the biggest jump in, over a tiny pole that wasn't even a foot off the floor! Ellie was taken that much by suprise, she flew in the air, bounced off Willows back and then landed on the floor! I shouldn't laugh really but she got up laughing. A little shook up, but she was laughing. I think if I'd of gotten all in a panic, she might of started crying, but she thought it was funny thank goodness. Thank heavens for body protectors!
    Its her first fall, and to be honest, I think it was long overdue. She's a daring monkey and not frightened of anything, both her trainers say she needed to fall, as she is too confident.
    I don't think its knocked her confidence any, as she got straight back on and went around at it again. This time he jumped perfectly! :)
    Petra had a day off today, but I had a little sit on meg! Only in the school and she was bareback (too wide for her saddle). We just had a little walk around. It was good to be on her again, think she enjoyed it too.

    Aww....hehe I wish I had horses around when I was a little kid like her. Almost everytime I fall I get up laughing too. *i guess cause I havent been hurt yet* i've fallen a total of 23 times in 4-5 years. So glad you can sit on your mare again. What did the stud look like??? I bet it's going to be a beautiful foal!!!

    Glad you like him.

    I've never had a coloured, but when I saw him, I thought WOW I want him.

    Gosh I've not written in quite a while. I seem to be constantly busy. All my equine family are great, thankgoodness, no mishaps lately.
    Petra's settled in great, I'm beginning to suss out her quirks and habits. But I'm so pleased I found her, she's such a sweetie. She's turning out to be quite a one person horse though, never seems to behave if I let anyone else have a try on her. I can't believe how much my confidence has returned since getting her. All the little things that use to freak me out before on Meg, and I don't bat an eye lid with Petra. Don't think I'll ever understand it, but hey I'm happy.
    Megs doing well, still looks like a table top. :roll: She's latched onto another mare in her field, seems to follow her around all the time, trying to mother her. If they get seperated, she screams for ages. Not too sure if that's a good or a worrying thing, but she really has grown too attached and can become bolshy when trying to get back to her. If anyone has any suggestions or answers, would be greatly appreciated.
    Willow and Ellie have being doing great together. She's still very confident, so her fall didn't knock her any. She still wants to jump, although that doesn't happen very often. She's just been learing to bend round poles, fun to watch. I've managed to keep Willow's Laminitis well managed so far. He does look a little underweight to me, but the vet said he's far better off being a little underweight than overweight, which is a good point.
    Farrier comes this week :roll: Its going to cost me £180.00 for three! I must be crazy!
