Possibly taking Phoenix in a halter show this weekend, depending on whether they will accept our late entry (woops ). So I brought him out today to give him a bit of a once over. Thought I would share some photos of my beautiful boy.

And my favourite picture

And for a little added adorable-ness, Nippa and his draft horse bum

I swear I need a spotter to keep me motivated at the moment. Maybe this journal thread thingymabob can be my spotter *hint hint* haha. Implemented my new routine today, of working at least 1 of my herd a day, whether I'm working or not. So Hugo was first off the block. I figured since he has started putting on weight again after his big colic scare (thanks for the heart attack baby) it was time to start working on the muscle too. So we did some ground work to get him started. Walk circles, trot circles, canter circles, trot poles. As well as tuning up of his yields. He was a reasonably good boy, had his moments, but having been out of work for quite some time I was pretty happy with him. Anyway, photos you ask? Of course!

Pffft some spotters you guys are!

It's ok though, I motivated myself and brought my Rexy up for some ground work, he's also lacking a top line.

He was a beautifully well behaved boy, until I asked for a canter circle, then I was met with some running backwards, tiny little rears and much bigger bucks. Then he realised it was much easier for him if he just cantered, as mummy doesn't get angry when he does as he's told. Of course he's also become quite the lazy bones and needed some serious urging to get him in to the canter. And trot poles? "Sheeesh mum now you want me to pick up my feet!? You're torturing me I swear!"

Haha, lucky I love my doofus so much

So, Nippa decided today that it was a fantastic time to get out of his pen. No big deal with any other pony, but with Mr hard to catch it was a tad stressful. All is good now though. Although because of having to catch him & fix his fence I didn't get to work anybody today.

Did buy a poop rake though! Finally! Now I can clean out his yard properly. I also put a deposit down on a cheap saddle. It has a "quick switch" gullet system, so hopefully I will be able to use it on more than 1 horse! Even if I can't though, with 8 horses and only 1 saddle to my name, a new one certainly won't go astray!

And for the exciting news?

ROMANCE IS COMING HOME NEXT WEEKEND! WOOT WOOT! Can't wait to bring my preggo princess home!

Trojan's turn today. He gave himself more of a work out than I gave him! I let him off the lead to let him have a roll and he spent the next 15 minutes hooning around the arena, throwing in some HUGE bucks from time to time. After getting his sillies out though, I put him back on the line and asked for some trot circles, stand and wait, back up and also spent some time with me standing on the mounting block to get him used to me being taller than him, in preparation for eventually getting someone on him for the first time. Anywho, photos of TJ's hoon session.

Bahaha, sheesh I'm getting there!

Yes I have been a little (a lot) slack the last couple of days. In the process of putting up a stable for my preggo princess, who will be home by dinner time on saturday! Stoked!!

Today I took Kody up for a bit of a work out. He was beautifully well behaved. Couldn't have asked him to be better. My 10 year old cousin, Tareya, has been struggling to find a horse she's comfortable riding lately. She decided to jump up on Kody bareback & she fell in love a little. She spent a few minutes on the line & the asked if she could take the reins and go for a wander around the roundyard. He was so good for her, light as feather in his stops, turns & forwards. So the plan is for her to jump on him for a few minutes each time he comes up for a workout.

Without further ado, photos....

Bahaha little head

Pretty boy

and Tareya's ride

I wish this one had worked out better!!

Kody decided he wanted to say hi to mummy!
