Overslept - Never good, Ive not had a proper sleep or day off for over a month, I think I am doing pretty well? Must find P/T Groom.......
On the yard breakfast all round and off for a lovely leg stretch with Fiona, Grace and Debbie. Recently moved we haven't explored all our hacking yet. We went into the big field at the bottom and both the girls - Fiona and Grace carting me and Debs round while snatching at the reins to grab some lush grass. Such a lovely place to wonder and hack, well until a deer jumped out the bushes and galloped off across the field, Fiona a vast girl at the best of times grew 10 hands and pranced around showing her best "dressage" moves. She really is breath taking.
Back on the yard and it became apparent Fiona was in great need of a mane tidy - she is looking more welsh pony than GP bred diva. After getting a little carried away we have a slightly more showjumper look, thankfully we are not plannig on plaiting in the next week or so.... Please grow!
Im then in tidy mode so we have a full wash and brush up - a little hoof trim I even manage to shave my hand in the process, OUCH!
Three loads off poo picking, im obsessed.
The vet arrives for Fiona's Vaccination. A new vet and although I would not nomally allow anyone but Robin to see my guys, for vaccinations I am happy for whichever vet is on call.
So we pass all the pleasantries as we walk to Fiona's stable and the vet stops as soon as we get to Fiona and is speechless - er hello????? "Wow, she is absolutley georgeous" the vet is literally dribbling over Fiona who is completely unfazed stuffing her face with hay. Greedy girl. So we spend the next 15 minutes or so talking through who Fiona is and what our plans our.
I love the reaction Fiona gets from new people, it fills me with such pride to be so lucky to be her mummy/owner.
Fiona back out into the field with little Toast and its over to little Ms Spotty, A brush and a good feet scrub (she is barefoot) and into the arena to work on canter. Not the most prductive of session, Spotty does not wish to canter nicely today so we work on transitions. Spotty is almost at the end of being completely rehabbed so we never push her beyond what she is comfortable with.
Then the mechanic arrives and its a quick bolt change on the car and a full service on the lorry which I am told is in tip top condition, fantastic as its going to be busy over the next few weeks.
Grace turned out, stables done and its time for lunch Im starving!
