Hahaha. My sister used to call him Pimpkin to annoy me.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Sunday, 22nd January

Went to Lake Cootharaba near the old milling point in Noosa for Friday and Saturday. Lots of kangaroos around the place, and I almost got to pat one. Some of the dominant males had huge forearms, so I have a picture there somewhere of one of them. Few Kookaburras and goanna's around the place as well.

Saw a float up there for sale so we are thinking about going back up to check it out and see if it is worth getting. I told dad to look at it while we were up there, but apparently another 2 hour drive sounds appealing...

Riding lessons start again next week, it will be interesting to find out if Pumpkin still knows how to turn without making the circumference of the moon. I should have ridden more, so I can't blame anyone but myself if it takes a while to warm up again.

And it turns out that I lied about not having photos from the other day. None from riding, just chilling around, but I'll put them up anyway. I'll put more up soon, internet is being slow.

I was all geared up and ready to ride this afternoon, but it started to rain. And rain. And rain. I was feeling very pro-active on my last day of holidays. However I did get to mow the back paddock. It looks all pretty and fresh now.

Plans to ride with Talitha again on Saturday, the owner of Saff. Another friend from work has invited me to join a group of her friends to go trail riding every now and again. It will be great to get Pumpkin out and about.

Sad day :(

The ponies who I work with are kept in a paddock which flooded. There are some higher grounds around the area. Our boss had to have the water police to come out and look for her 5 ponies, though sadly only 3 so far have been found :'(

We are hoping that they are found safe and sound. If anyone in the Brisbane, Carina area have seen 2 miniature ponies: 1 chestnut stallion and a black gelding with a white stripe in his mane, please let me know.

Thanks. She is on horseback looking for them in the park across the road at the moment, I am hoping we can get down there to help.

We have found the black gelding but he sadly didn't make it. The chestnut stallion is still missing. However our boss has purchased a new pony for work, and I have been invited to help with his training for the pony rides! Heading up this afternoon to have a look.

Riding was cancelled today due to the awesome floods and rain that we are getting :/

If the rain holds off tomorrow, I will be going up to ride with Talitha.

Her new stally is gorgeous! I'll have to get a picture when I next go up and see him. She has also purchased another mare this morning with a 4 week old foal at her side. Can't wait to see them

No news on Gus, the missing stallion, though as he was heard leader he wouldn't have left the herd, and as the smallest he would have been swimming first. The floods got up to the 16hh horses chests at the peak, so it can be assumed he has passed.

Didn't get to ride at Talitha's. Stupid rain. Plans for next week.

The mare and foal are way to cute. She has also gotten another gelding.

Rode Pumpkin on.... oh yesterday. Worked on being responsive to the 'go forward' cue. Jumped a few things here and there, blah blah blah.

I am sick today, but I am praying to the gods that I shall be well enough for tomorrows lesson and our ride with Talitha. Pony club sign on tomorrow as well. Working on Sunday, so I'll be able to snap some pics of the new ones.
