take shelter

nice 'new to me' chairs for the garden, Daisy likes them! I have placed them where the sunshine would be at the time I get home from work... if the sun would come out and stay out!! I've sat in them once since they arrived. My dad took off all the old paint and resprayed them and soaked the wood in oil, think they look pretty good!

I asked a friend if he could make me a saddle rack and storage unit, this is what he came up with... isn't it fabulous!!

and an extra comment re: vets and farriers....... "People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost." - Dalai Lama.

deep breath and repeat often...........

barefoot pony feet

a couple of people I know, their pony's have shown some lameness recently, immediately their vets advise to shoe them. constrict their feet into uncomfortable metal shoes that restrict movement and circulation....why is that the first thing they say?
I am so annoyed.

if you wear sandals then your pony will jump on your foot...dirty mark shows where...

so the next day it will look like this..... and procede to be colourful for a while!

Abbey's feet are all in good order, but you can't put all four on the plank at once....
