    Nell is a head shaker and its hard work some days. I have to say simply smearing Vaseline around her nostrils helped a bit, certainly worth a try....

    Went bareback hacking today

    Sounds fantastic and well done you, i wouldn't do it now. I used to ride my late Seren bareback all the time, i used to hoon around and stay on her, must have had excellent core strength! I only wish i was that strong and supple through the core, with my back I simply could do it now, but...

    Tell me about your Gypsy Vanners / Chunky Cobs!

    I love gypsy cobs. Had my late mare 20 years and she was a super star, she was super at all sorts, though I am a happy hacker so no real interest in doing other things, but Seren was an amazing and honest jumper and was super at cross country (she excelled at this when on loan). She was 14.2 and...

    Fair weather rider - I've turned into one

    Ha know the feeling, its not so much me but Nell! She took a disliking to fog, rain on the road, anything less than nice weather conditions! The cold weather has since not enticed me out much, nor her new found fright of cars. I am hoping by the time she comes back in two weeks some milder...

    WWYD re previous owner

    Agree completely with this /\ I do not understand your friends are saying no way, as :Landcruiser said, this sounds very touching to me that after all this time she still thinks of your horse and wants a token to remember him by.

    Does your horse mind bad weather?

    Yes so it seems! Nell has been a spook monster for the last 2-3 months now!!! Spooky when ridden or out grazing in this weather, does not help that she keeps zapping herself on the fence when trying to eat grass! She is tough though but is decidedly more unsettled with all this bad weather out...

    Roughing off til spring

    Sounds like a great idea! Nell has been doing very little work of late for a few reasons, lack of time, sometimes motivation, and the weather has not been that great, Nell is a bit of a plonker since the weather turned, having a short break is not such a bad idea at all, I like the idea of...
