Oh dear I'm not keeping up to date!! Ah, you thought I was talking about my butt...all behind, well I'll have you know I lost another kilo, sadly though not from my arse. Maybe trying to run two blogs was a bad idea, somehow I'm not keeping up with either. We had a busy week-end preparing the guest room and bathroom for it's chestnut flooring; we managed it, just, and now the flooring is going down. So my excuse is that I was too tired to blog.
I've worked with both boys when the weather has permitted and Di came over on Friday and we had a play with Moo, unfortunately, I probably drove her demented with my new found enthusiasm (oops).
Chapsi has had a few days without work, just grooming and tying up on the yard but today we braved the biting cold wind *brrr*. I think it's really good to give plenty of breaks with all horses but certainly with Chapsi I find he benefits well from time to allow things to sink in. I am really pleased with his attitude on the yard; he picks up his feet in anticipation of them being picked out and he can stand still most of the time to be brushed. Tonight he was excellent when I put the saddle on and stood stock still while I fastened the girth...no ticklish tummy causing him to barge into me. Very pleased with him and I'm looking forward to warmer weather so that we can do more.
Next week a new horse group in the locality is holding it's first meeting...good excuse to get together and chat with other horsey folks although it's a little scary having *real* chats rather than cyber chats, LOL.
