Unfortunately with work and rain and setting up out new home I just haven't had time to work Sam. Last Sunday I did get a chance to lunge him and he went very well. I was really hoping to ride this weekend but it looks like rain so that will count us out. I think we are mostly clay based so the place is very slippery. Sam seems fat and happy and loves being able to graze all day everyday. My feed bill has decreased dramatically which is awesome.

The rain will allow me to spray the weeds out the front and then I will be able to get the ground ripped and sown with something for spring and summer. I am still chatting with the gentleman who will be doing the shelter with exactly what I want and can afford but I am still hoping it will be up by the end of June. We have changed where the tack up/wash bay area is going to be and that will need a roof over it as well so I think the arena will have to wait until next year - that ok I am very content with what I have.

We were given a lovely house warming present last Sunday. His name is Wilbur. He is 3 months old has a black glossy coat and is already running riot in our household.

I haven't got any really good photos yet so this will have to do for now. He is certainly making himself at home and Jack is learning to deal with having a little black creature having the run of the house. At first he was petrified of Wilbur but is now standing up to him a little more.

Time for bed for me and hoping I will get to spend some form of time with Super Sam.

Wilbur is adorable! My cats run my household too.... I'm lucky they even let me sleep there!
