I’ve decided..

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

.. I don’t like woods. There we were, me and Goose, riding through the trees when all of a sudden I saw something move. It was green and moved! So I wasn’t going forward and desperately wanted to protect Goose when all of a sudden the ground trembled and this river jumped up and grabbed me and the next thing I knew Goose had thrown herself in for a swim. These humans are very strange, because then she walked all the way home!

How exciting..

..to get to ride out for ages over new roads and tracks. Mind you it got a bit silly at one point with my rider trying to get me to cross a burn by a very small bridge in some woods. I mean to say, what a ridiculous idea – it was far too dark and slippy to do that. Fortunately he turned around. But by then the excitement had got to me and I just had to bounce home jumping at every shadow. Hope we do it again.

The fields are getting..

..smaller as the fences are going back up. Not sure that this is a good or a bad thing. At the moment there is loads of grass in our big field but we can see it growing in the field next door and we can’t get to it. Hmmm. Wonder what the humans are doing?

There’s something going on..

..because more fences are going up in the fields. We are not sure what is happening but we can’t get into the field with all the rabbits in now, the front paddock is fenced so we can’t get to the arena and there are more fence posts coming into our big field. With any luck we are going to have the grass rationed so we can’t get lovely rich grass for longer in the year.

Bailey is worried that Shaun is trying to get some gallops built. Henry is being very cruel and saying he hopes they are because he is the fastest horse in the stables.

Rain rain go away..

..but we know it’ll be back in about ten minutes time. All day today it has been dry and then wet and then dry and then wet. And when it’s dry the sunshine is glorious.

And Fudge joined us in the field today and sorted us all out.

Ouch, ouch, ouch,

It’s so sore. Poor me and my poor foot. Pass more horse aspirin.

Where did that..

fence come from. There I was munching some grass and this sheep fence jumped onto my foot and trapped me. Argh I thought, what did I do to deserve that. I was stuck and my leg was dragged up by the fence. The fence was the length of the field and had fence posts and everything.

Luckily, Kirsten and Ellie came by and beat the fence back before it wrapped itself around my neck and sucked the blood and spirit from me. Then my hero came bounding over the hill and chopped the fence up into little pieces before releasing me. Phew!

Munch, munch..

..munch. This, munch, grass is, munch munch, delicious. We have finally, munch, been put, munch, back in, munch, our big, munch, field.

I can’t move. I don’t want to move. I’ll just have another bite of this grass.

It’s not fair..

..because the ponies have the lovely sweet grass in their field and we are left with the sheep and the well grazed river field. We are considering going on strike. Although at least some of us are still getting fed after work so it’s a very difficult call. Maybe we’ll think about it some more before we actually stop working.

The grass is..

..delicious and we aren’t allowed it. The sheep are breaking through the fence to eat it and the ponies are eating it, but we are still stuck in this steep sided field, reaching over the fence to grab little bits or munching on a mouthful whenever we are taken through the field.

Hopefully one day we may get a field like that all of our own! 🙂
