Been lurking a lot recently and not posting a great deal but thought I would share some updates from me and the Budster!
It has just over a year since his joint flush op, recuperating from this and the added ''I'm 5 so f to you mum' attitude has meant we haven't done a great deal at all, we have had a couple of set backs with the scar tissue in his hock over autumn and have gone very easy, meaning a warm winter and me being far too generous in the haylage department means a very F A T cob has snuck up on me!!! Luckily y/o has agreed to let me leave him living in the rough winter paddocks instead of going in the green fields, such a relief for me, he can forage all day on old bits of grass and gorse and I don't have to worry about getting him in early or muzzling him, I am over the moon. The weight is luckily dropping off him!! But what a struggle, hind sight is wonderful.

A few recent pics;

This can be labeled, smug cob goes to dressage and amazes with whopping score and our first win!!

And jumping yesterday, he is labelling it ''Feather power'' but I may to change it to ''The cause of a richter 10 earthquake in the northeast'' ;)

It is coming up to our three year 'owniversary' so I thought I would share this pic of the first time we met when someone had pointed me to the field he was in and told he was for sale. Such a baby face :)

Lovely to hear he is doing so well. I remember him being in hospital.....such a worrying time for you. He looks very well though........I know exactly what you mean by the weight sneaking up on you....it happens to us all! xxx
