Back on board!

Sorry about the long absence. Sam is well - happy and feeling a very big spring in his step. With all the rain we have had the clover is really coming up in the paddock. It is still hard to work him due to the ground but we are slowly getting into some more consistant work. I have discovered the Pony Club grounds aren't too bad to ride on and only a 2.5km ride. We have used the grounds a couples of times.

Sam has a new friend, Little Poppy Poppin'. She is about 9hh, 3yo. Mini x Welsh A. She is very cute and is learning the ropes here quickly. She is getting better at having her halter put on, things over her back and picking up her hooves. She has also put on a bit of weight since arriving so is already on a diet! Sam loves her. He is a little mean at times but if she is out of sight when in the paddock there is a lot of calling and cantering around until she either answers or he finds her. He is good with leaving her when we go riding which is good. I won't make you read any more just indulge yourselves in the cuteness!

The photo that melted my heart.
She had just stepped off to the truck and we were leading her to the paddock.
Her first day with us - a little unsure of it all but willing to give it a go.
Sam more than happy to share his dinner with this little ball of fluff - this does not happen any more!
She comes riding with us!!!!!!

She is adorable! I just love minis/ponies. They are such little stinkers, but they're so cute that you forgive them. You're going to have so much fun with her!
