    Not much riding has been done on Pumpkin and that is a shame. I do have plans to ride him later on when it cools down this afternoon.
    My tail bone has been slowly recovering but it now seems I have hurt my toe to the point where I can't walk with-out being in a large amount of pain.
    Yesterday after my lessons, Mum and I stopped in to the saddlery and got some stuff for the pony. I ended up with a rug to keep the flys off him a bit more, a rope halter and a Santa Hat. He loves wearing it and I will have to put up photos soon.

    6 ducklings hatched last Wednesday so that has been very exciting.

    Wow, it has been a long time.. oops. Oh mistake for the last post, it was November. Oopsies again

    Not much to really put down. Since the start of Summer it has been pouring with rain. There has been about only 4 days or so when the sun has come out. This unfortunatly means no riding and Pumpkin turns into a brat.

    The back paddock is starting to grow some grass finally, so that is very good. I am on holidays and will hopefully be able to ride with friends if this rain eases up a bit

    The ducklings are getting very big, but we most likely will have to get rid of any males that have hatched as we have enough as it is.

    At the end of this week my family and I are going to down to Melbourne for 3 weeks to see relatives. Hopefully Pumpkin will not be to physco when we get back.

    Nothing but rain for months now. As some of you may have heard, the Brisbane river has flooded and giving heaps of people trouble. Luckily we live far enough away from the river to have not been effected but still the rain is not helping the 'over energized pony' situation. My family and I went down to Melbourne for 2 weeks and a bit over Christmas. That resulted in Pumpkin being un-handled and losing his manners. Whoop whoop :/
    So there is another thing we must get over.

    I have also quit lessons from my current riding school. I am glad about that but until I get another areas number I am currently riding deprived which is not that good. But life happens so I will have to wait it out.

    On a brighter note, I got an old leather jumping saddle that might just fit Pumpkn for $40 down in Melvourne. Always a bonus.

    Not much has really been happening lately.

    My (all purpose) saddle arrived 2 days ago, so I gave that a good clean. I have been slowly getting rid of Pumpkins energy, running him up and down the fence freely, and that seems to be working. He is a sucker for food. Placed up a few small jumps, and he went over those nicely.
    Tried out the saddle on him, and it seems to fit. We have not had any issues yet, so hopefully it will turn out alright. After tacking up, I jumped on and gave him a quick ride in the back paddock - only walk and a trot. He feels like a good canter so I will have to see about that today or tomorrow. We had to finish early though, I could feel him starting to misbehave, so I ended it on a good note while I could.

    The ducklings are getting along well with the other adults, though we are still having problems introducing the two Pekin males. All in good time I suppose.

    It has been overcast these past few days, although really hot. Still looking for somwhere to ride, preferably close. At least I am getting Pumpkin back on his feet.

    Goodness, I am becomeing really slack with this journal.

    Anyway, since my last update I have sprained my ankle doing somthing stupid...I just can't remember how. I rode Pumpkin a few days ago, and he behaved very well. He was lookinbg foward to a good canter, so I took for a bit of a canter and that seemed to make him happy. Worked on responsivness to the bit and me, he needs a little bit of a refesher.
    Not much other stuff has been happening in the world of horses.

    It has been much to hot to be riding lately and now we have come back to the rain. Mostly I have just been spending time with Pumpkin and grooming him a lot as he eats his dinner, and he seems to be loving the attention. He has been behaving very well which is always very good.

    I hope I can start lessons soon, it has been an number of months now since I have ridden and I am almost going insane. If all goes to plan, I should be getting the number tomorrow.
