Well, we have had a mammoth last couple of weeks. I'm finally able to release our big new yipee!! After 7 months (felt like a whole lot longer!!) of stress, tears and never giving up...I'm pleased to say we are now yard owners!!

This has been a lifelong dream of mine since getting Merlin as a 9 year old! My dad and I had many plans on how we would own a yard and run it with Merlin ruling the roost!

Sadly this never happend in my dad's life time or Merlins but I never gave up. With the help of my partner 25 years on we managed to find some stables for sale and a house not too far away.

The things we do for our horses - I've moved nearly 50 miles from family and friends to ensure they now have a forever home and a place we can call ours!

My partner also did something very sweet and had a sign made for the yard which made me tear up saying 'Merlin & Roy's stables'.

To say we are ecstatic is an understatement! It's by no means a big yard and needs tons of work (bar the stables) but it suits the trio to a tee!

We need to get an arena built which is the next huge task as we have an area to school, which was once wood fibre I think but it's very small and squishy!

I do like a project so I will be looking forward to doing improvements throughout the year.

I also cannot wait to try the venues nearby like Weston Lawns! I've always wanted to go there but I didn't like motorway driving!

I've seen a lot of clinics and training advertised nearby so am excited for that too! I'm just giving the trio a little bit of time to settle in.

Bob has found it a bit harder to adjust with the noise of traffic nearby but he is getting there!

If any one has any tips on helping the trio deal with the stress of moving, let me know!

I've found quite a few local tack shops nearby as I've been exploring much to the despair of my partner -he said 'Don't let them get to know you again on a first name basis like the other places did.' haha!!

I will keep you updated on the progress, and the improvements we make! I Hope everyone is staying dry with all this wet weather!!
