Firstly thanks to those that read yesterdays epic post & even stayed awake to offer such encouraging replies. What a friendly bunch you are! The downside to my weekend was that I got a frantic phone call from a friend last night asking for a favour to take a very poorly pony to hospital in my lorry-of course I whizzed straight to the yard to fetch it. Theres a very narrow drive out of the yard with a stream one side & a high bank the other with a stone retaining wall. Muppet here in her rush to be a good samaritan didn't get straight & caught the side of the lorry where the ramp spring hinge juts out just a couple of inches on the corner of the wall. Wall has fallen in a big heap & ramp spring has busted. So for a misjudgement of maybe 2 inches I've caused ££££'s worth of damageGood news is we still managed to get pony to vet & he made it through the night (don't know full prognosis). Didn't feel very motivated to go to stressage this morning but glad I did as we got a 4th (with a 9 for his halt, never had one of those beforeAlthough it took 2 of us to heave ramp up without the aid of the busted spring. The worle of horses sure does have its ups & downs !!
