Wow..

..ths is so exciting. We have been fed and left out in the field for the night. It’s much lighter than in the stables and we have loads of room to run around. Already me and BG are racing around in the dusk and fighting. I’m going to wait until BG is fast asleep and then push him down the hill. Hee hee hee.

Flicka is really happy as well because she was just saying the other day that the indoor school was getting very dusty.

It’s hot, hot, hot..

..out there today and we have had a lovely day wandering around our field and munching on the fresh grass that’s coming through. Let’s hope that this is the start of a long summer.

And the big gossip in our field is Bonnie’s complete infatuation with George. She really lurvs him, she wants to kiss him. In fact we have come up with a little verse we are using to taunt her mercilessly.

George and Bonnie sitting under a tree,
K – I- S – S – I – N – G,
First comes love,
Second comes marriage,
Third comes a foal in a golden carriage.

She says that she doesn’t care what we say because she loves George and George loves her. Mind you it has made her less grumpy.

Oooo my legs hurt..

..after all that cantering up hill and down dale today. And I had a really early start. I am just not a morning pony and it was just not going to be a good day today for me when I was fed at 5.30 and put in a trailer and driven to somewhere miles from home and expected to jump big jumps and all before 10.30am. I need training for that kind of thing. Proper training, with early alarm calls waking me up 5 minutes earlier each day so that after a month I can get working at 9 am. I didn’t even have time to get my mane looking lovely and flowing. How can Mollie expect me to be photographed when my mane doesn’t bounce and flow in the wind. Really, I have no idea what the girl was thinking about. Still it was a bit embarrassing when Maddie came back full of himself after going all the way around the course. He said, “the water was very cooling in the water jump, but I, of course wouldnt know that. Humph! I’ll show him when we go to Strathearn Eventing for the PC Hunter Trials next month. Things will be different then…

..well as long as there aren’t as many hills!

We’re torn..

..between the hay sitting waiting for us in the hay hakes and this delicious fresh grass growing in the field. The grass is coming through so well now that we left the hay (which isn’t going anywhere) and spent the day grazing the big field. Wow, it was great, juicy and fresh and really gives us a spring to our step.

Phew what a day..

Friday, April 11th, 2008

..we had today. Loads of us went out for a picnic. It was great fun. We got groomed really well and tacked up and everyone had their bright road gear on and we headed off into the countryside in three groups. Almost no one stayed behind at home. We haven’t done this in ages. We’ve hardly hacked out since buggy brought the bugs to the yard last summer. (She denies it but she was the only one with them).

We walked for ages in lovely sunshine and even had to jump through a stream and then best bit of all we got to eat a little fat grass. It was lovely and we all walked home with the taste of it on our lips. Our grass is only just coming through and the haylage is nice but eating the spring grass just reminded us all of what we have to look forward to.

Most of the time the people were OK but we had a few over cleaned saddles that just must have been a bit too slippy but no one got hurt – thankfully. We hope everyine enjoyed it because we all want to do it again. SOON!

Interesting..

..but not as much fun as chasing Trio around the field. Today I was brought in and had a saddle put on my back and a bridle put on me. I was then lead around. This humans are a bit strange. I knew exactly what was going on because they did this to me last year. But they didn’t put anyone on the saddle.

Which was a bit of a shame because its not like I don’t see all the lessons from my field and I know fine well what happens next. I’m quite looking forward to being ridden really. It will mark me becoming a grown up horse. Maybe they’ll stop calling me Baby George then.

What do you think I’ll be called. It can’t be George because there already is a George. Babe George (a bit like Babe Ruth) would be good. But then again I don’t play baseball!

I know – BIG George.

Funtastic..

..times were had by all. We don’t know why but today we were just about all brought in to the school. We thought that this meant more injections or shoes or wormer but no we ot tacked up.

We hten got to run around the empty fields in groups and race around the place. Whoopee that was sooo much fun. It was great just to do something really different. Don’t get us wrong, we love the riding lessons but this was just like a huge big party and holiday.

Mind you it meant the stables got mucked out later than usual and the horses had to stay in the indoor school and couldn’t run around the field (because we were doing that!).

They didn’t complain too much because when they got turned back out again there was a new big bale of hay waiting for them.

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.
