my pony has turned into happy feet!

 what the title says really! 

Havent ridden flick properly for 3 weeks, sat on her and rode her bareback down the lane a few times about two weeks ago, but due to weather and college commitments i just haven't had the chance to get in the saddle! Also shes been out 24/7 for the past week (as its not been bad weather) and shes become chubz...rather chubz! like a barrel, haha! it will be going asap though! 

 

Soo.. i managed to spend some time up the yard and ride today.. she was amazing! sooo keen! got on, went jogging off down the lane. spook here, spook there! but very forward and keen! the woods were lovely today, was just in a t-shirt thats how good the weather was! was only planning on walking as shes chubz and unfit, ..she had other plans.. had a cheeky trot and a full speedy canter! (the ground is that perfect soft but not wet ground right now) (YAY)

Hacked to a friends who i had a quick coffee with and then rode back  through the wood, where we had a jolly canter up a hill, she really was loving being out.. this canter uphill made her perk right up! just like twinkle toes all the way along through the trees, i was actually LOLing haha! 

 

very very good mood today! pics, excuse the crazy mane!

It's lonely in the saddle since the horse died.

Crazy mane?? It looks very tidy to me...!!

But glad you had a good ride, the woods look a lovely place to hack, even if there are wild boar, do you ever see any?

 yes, wild boar! yup, see some occasionally, seen a few big ones with some babies a couple of weeks ago, safe to say i am more scared of them than flick! which is good, as so many horror stories of horses flipping backwards from rearing, napping etc stemmed from them. 

 

her mane needs a good trim and a pull, so thick!  :D

Dont think I'd like the idea of wild boar out on a hack! Too scarey for me! Looks a lovely place to ride otherwise!

 

Great when they put you in a good mood!

 its beautiful, you can get right to the top of giant hills that over look stunning views and things! 

 

they are very very scarey, and i have been known to turn my mare around and zoom off in the opposite direction if i even suspect or hear them shufferling around haha! xx
