Bored, bored, bored..

..I’m stuck in this box again having to talk to Diamond. So I had a little sore leg and the next thing I know is I’m inside, my shoes have been removed and someone is digging away at my feet. Mind you, it doesn’t hurt much now but the weather was so noce today and I was stuck inside when all my mates were outside running around. Next time I’ll be a bit more stoic.

It was going so well..

.. and then I had to canter up a hill and there was a jump at the top and it looked huge and I started to worry that I might trip on it and fall and hurt myself and so I stopped, and then had to do it again and then there was another pair of jumps and it just all started to go wrong from there. I couldn’t help it really, sorry Shaun, I honestly tried to jump all the jumps but they just looked soooo big. Lol

Bailey

Phew..

..another Saturday over and we are all too exhausted to write anything much.

We’re not basking sharks..

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

..but we have spent all day basking in the sunshine. The hay made a nice comfortable bed as well. Mind you it was hot in these rugs. It seems like spring is here and the weather is warming up the ground and drying it up. We just need the grass to come through and then the living will be easy.

Shaun was up fixing the broken fence in our field this evening so our escape route has been blocked once again. Mind you, Rosebud claims to have done a deal with the rabbits. She says that if we bring them back some of our food then they will dig a very wide tunnel from our field to the horses field and then we can all play together. It would need to be a huge tunnel for her to get down.

Dizzy..

..our heads are spinning. Because it was one of those funny nights when we have to do the same thing over and over again. Last week we were going in and out of a trailer and this week we just went round and round on a big line with ted children taking it in turns to ride around on us.

No escape and..

..sorry Ellie.

Naughty ponies (we suspect Rosebud and her plans for World domination) have kicked holes in the post and rail fence. We want to make it quite clear that she is alone in this and none of us have even thought of using the damaged fence as an escape route.

Good trick tonight – Tisky hid from Liam when he came to fetch him for his lesson so he went back to the yard empty handed. Then when Shaun came running up to find another pony Tisky jumped out from his hiding place and was all innocent (heh, heh, heh!)

So Liam thinks that we’re going to be all nice a cuddly on Saturdays does he…wait ’til he sees how we can embarrass Saturday helpers…

Apologies to Ellie. Holli says she is really really sorry she let you fall onto that jump. She honestly thought you’d jump it no problem without her and was just trying to be helpful. She hopes you won’t hold it against her..

Warm weather..

Monday, March 24th, 2008

..has arrived and the grass is coming through (although slowly). The ground is also drying out really quickly. In fact, in places it is getting so dry its cracking. This makes it much easier for us when we don’t have to step up to our knees in it.

We are looking forward to tomorrow because we are all involved in the show jumping clinic. Unfortunately we have lost one of our participants to a bad bout of chicken pox. We are all thinking of you and hoping you are feeling better soon.

What fun..

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

.. I had today. Shaun is so easy to wind up. I was so good at it that Shaun went and stomped all over the muck heap. What did I do. Shaun came to catch me for the 11:45 lesson and I waited until he almost put the headcollar on and then sprinted off. Shaun followed me all the way up the field and then just as he got to me I ran off again. Ha ha how I laughed. He stormed off shouting “Louise, Louise” thinking I would follow him, Ha. Five minutes later he came back with a food bucket. As if I would fall for that.

He came to catch me again and I ran off. After a couple more shots he went back to the yard and jumped up and down on the muck heap. Then he sent Hannah and Ellie out to get me so, just to top it off, I let them catch me straight away and walked down to the yard as if butter wouldn’t melt in my mouth.

How I laughed.

What’s that..

Friday, March 21st, 2008

..coming over the hill. It’s a whole host of things getting blown around the fields by the huge gale. At one point the wind was so strong that Heidi was almost blown off her feet.

We’re confused..

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

..because we spent alot of time tonight going in and out of a trailer.

Usually we are happy to go out in the trailer because it’s lots of fun going to shows but at night in the dark is really daft. So imagine how confused we were when it was dark and late and Shaun tried to put me in the trailer. I didn’t want to go in at first, but obviously trust him so went in. He then took me out and then I spent the next hour being taken in and out of the trailer.

It’s not even like I don’t go in a trailer. I could understand it if they’d been doing it to Bailey, who quite frankly is rubbish at loading and needs as much practice as possible but in the games season I do it two or three times a week.

Anyway back to the hay.

A confused Fudge.
