    My news, well I have 8 horses that reside with me at the moment two are not mine and I take care of them here for a friend. My lot has expanded somewhat, I am in the process of actually buying Floinn now as he is certainly a keeper have shown him a couple of times in hand and he is such a darling, George is now 4 if you can believe it which of course means Minstrel has been gone for well over 4 years, Ted is now 10 and still the same cheeky giant as he ever was, Jetlee the highland is a pretty cool dude but it is becoming apparent that he will never be a show pony he just doesn't really like any of the process so he is just my little tootle pony at home now, I still have Angus who is now 28 and Haggis who is 3 and I still cannot decide if he is worth keeping entire purely for showing purposes or not as I feel he is a rather nice little shetland... Hard to tell fancy a peep at him? We also still live in Staffordshire which we moved to last year after so many years in Aberdeen and are both loving it! So much to do, the only downside is I feel lonely often. Keep myself busy with all the horses and part time work but I need to make some more friends down this way, seems my social awkwardness is no better then it was before ahhh well!! Also still have the 6 sheep, 2 springers, 2 cats, and goodness knows how many chickens!! Oh and the geese!! Hello!! Lets bring TO back to the vibrant place it was before!!

    Their beauty captures every eye, a gift from God for all mankind, they lend us wings so we may fly, to ride a horse is to ride the sky

    Bet it is lovely to be riding out with your girls, I love my hacks with mother. As we both have youngsters it's a battle of "who is in front this time?"

    My news is that, 3 years ago DH and I moved into our own house, we have decided to try to start a family - which has been a bit hard on my front due to health issues - lots of trips to doctors for myself - BOO!
    On the horse front, I have two brilliant horses, I have recently taken my Maxi Cob to county level shows and I am determined to try and qualify for Search for a star/HOYS next year and I also have a fantastic showjumper I bought last year and we have joined BSJA and I am thinking of joining BE next year!

    Absolutely. I just spent a morning with the Minions and they never shut up!

    I was not lonely for one minute. Why should I be? They wanted to be hugged and talked to.

    So lovely to be able to ride out with both your girls, my mum still comes and rides at the riding school where I keep mine once a week and she's 70 next year, hope I'm still going strong at that age!!
