Horse Sense....

    The little ones are hilarious. They've just got to the stage where they know they've got their game on. So every morning they run up and they're showing me things, like ... Read post
    I swear, hand on hoof, I have been wet for 9 straight hours. Honestly, I stepped outside my door, got 5 metres and it pissed down and never stopped.  However, there were ... Read post
    Funniest thing in the world here... My lovely neighbour called me the other day, and offered me a couple of cows to chew the grass and I happily accepted. Got home and ... Read post
    So Belle's just been a bit Meh... and her glands were up last night, so I text our Vet this morning and Belle had her first bloods done today at lunch. I am such a fan of ... Read post
    Belle is having so much fun with her friend, Ruby. And as much as I miss having her at home, it was by far the best decision for Belle.  She's happier being with a friend her ... Read post
    So my hands are all hot this morning and I'm really looking forward to the young one, but the next minute (as I'm driving down the road), Spirit are like, Don't you be touching ... Read post
    Well, well, well, what a difference 24 hours makes! Mumma has taken to running in a (little) herd like she was born to it.  Where Caps is, Mumma is and then Mumma goes off to ... Read post
    Ok, so I'm off to see my friends this afternoon. Yes, the added stuff I put in Belle's food last night has worked well, and she is noticeably better today but, and this is the big ... Read post
    So fingers crossed, as I am writing this, the herb worked for Mumma. I mean, already there's been a 360 turn around in her personality and calmness, and I'm super stoked.  The ... Read post
    So in the interests of transparency, Spirit gave me a slap. To be fair, I might, just possibly, have been going too fast with Belle.  Maybe for her, maybe me, maybe both of ... Read post
    I'm only going to say this once, then I swear, hand on heart, I will never mention this again. As I am writing this, we should have just about gone into level three lock ... Read post
    We're still in complete lock down here, so no photo's, video's or chit chats. However, I have some questions for you: 1) I read in the Herald the other day that now is the time to ... Read post
    We are still in complete lock down here now in New Zealand, apart from essential businesses - which does include liquour stores, but does not include butchers and ... Read post
    We are in complete lock down here now in New Zealand, apart from essential businesses.   The Government is also encouraging people to dob in those that they think might ... Read post
    Ok, my Acupunturist was super cute today. I walked in the door and the next minute he had an electronic thermomenter aimed at me, taking my bloody temperature!  Then gave me ... Read post
    So there I was lying on the deck with my laptop, trying to multi task by tweaking next weeks blog and grabbing the last of the Summer rays, and the next minute: Tap...tap... Elvis ... Read post
    Liam got the PHD Scholarship. 8.01 Friday morning, he opened his email and there was the offer. I am so unbelieveably proud of him.  Details to follow. **** Super cool ... Read post
    Belle is sooooooooooooooooo pissed off about this halter. I'm assuming that if I keep doing my thing, then eventually she will understand that she wants what she wants again, and ... Read post
    I've obviously missed steps with the rope. Go on, ask me how I know? Because our dance is not right. We're clumsy, and it shouldn't be like that.  It should be a dance where ... Read post
    Belle is doing beautifully. We had a fantastic play date today.  Belle is all good with the rope and overall is pretty Meh! about the whole thing, which is just ... Read post
    Oh wait...I remember why I didn't use the rope earlier, foals think that you are playing with them, and it takes you both down the wrong road. Our timing is perfect.   Note ... Read post
    So today I had two wins and a fail. Personally, I think that it should read at 2.5 to .5 but since I'm sitting on the deck writing this and Caps is glaring at me, you know, let's ... Read post
    I know this is going to sound a bit bizarre, ok, ok, well maybe that train has already left the station, but anyway, I swear that Az is sulking. If I leave him in the paddock with ... Read post
    Belle got an ass whooping from Mumma today. Well, for the last couple of days Belle has been quite high in Energy.  Wanting to do little nips all round the place, and ... Read post
    I went to see one of my friends the other day.  She'd been away having stuff done, but when I saw her she was like, Look...look at me, Tania.  Look what they've ... Read post
    So Cappy got his tail caught in the fence today, and scared himself half to death. We'd been breakfasting, then having a groom, and once everyone finishes their meal (apart from ... Read post
