Well I’m incredibly sorry I haven’t had a new post in like, three months, but I’m back! With good news and bad news. I’m going to save the bad news for last, so good news, and just catching up first!
Well it’s my last week of school! So next year will be my last year of Primary School! My teacher next year is called Mr Mac, and I’m not so scared of him so far……
My pony Nim has been up for sale, and been sold to my Equestrian Centre (Wallington Park) and is working his way up the pecking order!
My friend got a new chestnut horse, Zepelan, and they’re very happy together.
My other pony, Merry-Legs, has been up for sale, and sold to a lovely lady called Sandra and her husband Ernie. She’s very, very happy, and just loves it at there place!
Things have been great with Brandy. I’ve brought him in from the paddock a couple times and he’s improving really well!
Next year I’ll be taking care of a chestnut horse called Surey! She’s 15.1hh and her breed is Thoroughbred/Paint/Appaloosa/Quarter -Horse, although she doesn’t have spots, or white blotches anymore. When you ride her, she keeps her head down really low, so her head is about 20cm from touching the arena ground, it’s not naughty, she was trained like that, some Quarter horses are trained like that when they’re ridden. She’s not a horse that likes to do much, she’s not a big fan of jumping at all, but that doesn’t matter to me I think I need to work on my position too, I could do with a fair bit of dressage. She’s just a really good pleasure horse too! I’m not into competitive riding so it’s good. I won’t be actually buying her, I’ll just be taking care of her for a full year. Her real owner is going year 12 and won’t be able to take care her every day as studying will be taking her life away for the next year!:)
Then her comes the sad news My biggest horse, Aadessa has to be put down! She has a disease called Laminitis. It’s gotten really bad and now her pedal bone (the bone closest to the hoof) is starting to move forward. So if she was trotting in a paddock, it could slip and go through her leg! We’re putting her down before the worst takes over and puts her in more pain than what she really is in.
There’s no other horse like her, and I’m not saying that just for the sake of it. She was mistreated badly in her past, and now is VERY sensitive. So if she tries to be naughty (which is VERY rare) and you give her a tap on the nose for doing it, she acts like you’ve given her the whipping of a lifetime! :)All she really wanted was to be ridden, she wasn’t just like ‘yay another ride…..,’ it was like ‘YYYEEESSS!!!! DAD IS RIDING ME!!!!!!!!!’ And she’d go out of our way to please us.
So that’s all I’ve got to say!
I don’t really think that questions are necessary for this post, so bye!
