Long time no see!!!

This week has seen the weather change constantly.

We had 2 of our lovely residents away on Monday to their new home and all seems to be going well there.


The Shetland shed has been the biggest project this week and tidying up after Susan and her 'team' that were supposed to have been painting and fixing jumps... Now we have loads of half done jumps and tools lying everywhere.... Suz having a panic attack because I said I was putting 'her' tools away (very surprised I didnt get a visit to supervise) lots of bonuses her being laid up with a dodgy knee.....


I even got some of the stables finished off all ready for the winter.... mats and doors all done, and some weeding done down the drive.. I've recruited the help of Mark to get the strimming up to date too .... like to keep folk busy ...

I've already got 3 of the boys coming in ... the big wooses are starting to feel the cold and not enjoying the rain at all....


I got some great photos up the hill showing the murky weather we have had, the mist can come in really quickly. One minute clear as, the next you're lucky to see your own hand... talk about Gorillas in the Mist... we have Horses in the Mist (far better).

I've had a big breakthrough this week with our youngster Thorn.... Shes been trying hard to come up for a sweetie for a wee while and yesterday she actually took one and today she even stood for a pat... next is wee Dudley, our one eyed Shetland, I'm sure it wont be long until hes happy to join the mellie...


I had my trusty side kick with me most days and he can now get himself on the quad and in position for us off.... nothing stopping him now. Hes like a wee limpet hanging on and his balance is great, only thing is he has decided that the horses arent allowed to sniff the bike and hes like security and nips their noses...(He'll need to forget that... work in progress)



This reminds me of a Breadie working dog I went to view a few years ago. His name was George, brown and white and a lovely friendly dog. The owner took him to the field of sheep so as I could see George working. The field bordered the main road. Just as George was sent 'away' to get the sheep, he got to the bottom of the field as the school bus stopped at the side of the road to drop the kids off. For some unknown reason George jumped the dyke and next thing we knew here's George on the bus!!! The owner unfortunately had laryngitis at the time and it was hilarious listening to him skreckin at George to get off the bus... by this time George is sitting on the front seat opposite the driver and the owner was like a brust ribena berry trying to shout and I was about lying on the ground laughing.... Even better because the driver casually shut the bus door and drove off with George proud as punch on the front seat.


He did stop further along the road and George was extracted..... needless to say I didn't buy George as I lived near a main road at the time and couldnay afford his bus fares......


Here's hoping Haggis doesnay get any ideas ....
