It’s been another eventful time with the trio, from Bob trying his hoof at shoe removing (his own I may add leading to an emergency farrier visit due to a lot of foot soreness – he picks his timings so well!), to moving to the scary back field, oh and the clumsy owner that is me falling off …no not a horse.. but a stool whilst stripping wall paper and injuring my back! D’oh!
The weather has been lovely, and I’ve managed to fit the odd short ride in, mainly on the big lad just to keep him ticking over, and despite not being on any form of calmer for weeks now he has been brilliant. No spookiness or sharpness, and no tension whatsoever in his back, I am dumb founded at the change in him and how happy and relaxed he is 😊
We spent one of the lovely evenings banging in some fence posts along the river bank in the back field, and although it was tough work, the weather, scenery and bird song made it enjoyable. We spent the next morning clearing branches and sorting the remainder of the fencing before letting the trio loose. Autumn had been watching us for a short while and knew exactly what was going to happen (she is very observant when she wants to be and clocks on very quickly), we opened the field gates and Bob who was at the front just stood there looking confused.
Autumn wasted no time and whizzed passed him down the drive to the new field with Aria trundling behind. Once Bob realised he was being left off he thundered off and followed into the field. I was expecting a lot of galloping jumping and prancing so I could take some good pics, but what I got was a quick 10 second trot then all three heads down grazing lol! It was nice to see them happy and chilled, and also meant no more mucking out for me as they could now live out yippee only the fields to do instead!
