This has to be one of my favourite threads ever! AA you have a brilliant way with words- your updates are funny and heart warming- I'm another who would buy your book! Ted is just lovely- I wish you every bit of luck in the world with him and that he turns into a fabulous horse for you! Please don't stop updating us on his progress- its like reading a good book were you are excited to find out what happens next! :-D also love your sensible and calm attitude to handling him- sounds like you are doing all the right things and I love the emphasis on good manners- he sounds a credit to you already.
