    Electric fence giggle

    My old boy is in a small dry patch behind an electric fence due to an abscess. He is a bugger with them, pulls out the posts from the top. I forgot I turned it off when I went to check him. Needed to get him out to change poultice and turned it back on in error. Cue scream, swearing and crackle...

    "Fresh" ponies!

    Son's pony squealed 4/5 times, performed a 180, bucked and threw a shape for no reason at all. My mare was slightly on her toes, but she's very well behaved so barely noticed. However when we had a canter, she took a keen hold! The wind was a bit bitey so could have had an effect. I was sitting...

    Farrier cancelled a visit due to not being economically viable. (Not mine but a friend's)

    Daft mare - did she understand?

    Son's pony loves udder scratches and will follow you round whilst poo picking in the hope that you oblige (she won't leave until you do!). She got what she wanted this morning and when I stopped I said that was it to her, no more. She looked round at me, squealed and sped off back to her hay. ๐Ÿ˜…

    Playing with deer

    Spotted a slightly larger thing with the deer this evening. Cassie had either been playing with the deer or chasing them. Tail stuck right in the air but sadly I was too far away to take video.

    Girls/Boys jacket

    Son has outgrown his tweed jacket so as he mainly does SJ now I got him a blacket jacket off ebay. It has arrived, lovely jacket but buttons are on the left, which I never thought about until I looked at it tonight. Can I get away with it?

    Doing her own plastic bag training!

    I stupidly left a door open whilst emptying the wheelbarrow. Heard a rustling, came back into the barn to find this monster playing.

    Today my pony has eaten...

    ...parisien baguette, Tyrells salted crisps, belgian bun -including the cherry on the top and apple. We take a picnic lunch up to the ponies at the weekend and she was resting her head on my shoulder waiting to be fed titbits! (yes, I am fully aware of what constitutes suitable food for equines...

    3 weeks old today

    It is virtually impossible to take a photo of a foal. They don't comply to the stand there looking pretty whilst I take a pic command. You can get plenty of nose shots but little else ๐Ÿคญ.

    Be careful of what you wish for!

    Yep, I wanted a dun. However, what I forgot was the ability of lighter colours to attract poo stains!! Cassie has been snoozing in the stable and was sporting an interesting array of splodges. ๐Ÿ˜ž

    A nice morning playing ponies

    Spent a lovely few hours with my lot today. Foal handling, impromptu bathing, feet soaking of course time wasting watching foal. My mare loved being washed over with hose, not planned at all but she wandered over whilst we were dampening down the shavings in the field shelter and stood there...

    Pictures How to post pics?

    Before we changed over I used to be able to post pics. Now it takes me a while, coupled with lots of swearing to get thumbnail attachments which look poxy compared to other peoples proper sized ones. I don't have facebook and can't screenshot either. So how do people do it? Please help!!!

    Naughty broody!

    My mare has decided the past few days that she doesn't want to go back into night time field and runs off. She let my son approach her today, then with a glint in her eye, took off at canter towards me. She stood momentarily then legged it again tossing her head in defiance. She's obviously...

    A barrow full of fur

    The old boy had his annual hair cut today. I seized the opportunity whilst the weather was dry. So much came off him that it was over a barrow load. The birds will have lovely soft nests. He was rather pleased with his new look and showed his appreciation by rolling.๐Ÿ˜
