I'm back!!

Well, I've had a break! But I'm back now, I don't know if I'm refreshed, but I'm back anyway!!
Lots of things have happened, but I won't tell you about them all now, that would take far too long!!

It turns out I don't have Cealiacs after all. What I have got remains a mystery!!

The girls continue to ride, and are now joining pony club. It really is a good deal you know. At the moment I pay £10 each for half an hour's lesson, and £5 each for half an hour stable management. For £22 a year they can join Pony Club (without their own horse) and once a month meet up for the day, ten til four, ride, learn and have fun. They can take riding tests, earn badges, compete and camp!! Ideal if you ask me! Just wish I was under 21, I wanna join! Find out more here.

I have also started riding again, yay!! A lady just down the road from me has three horses, Ippy, Echo and Gayly, that I and lovely girl have been exercising and also I have been riding for a woman locally who has ride and drive horses. Advertising time!! Felicity and her husband John have a beautiful holiday home in a very secluded and beautiful spot in the Welsh countryside. Felicity also runs driving courses, check it out here. Felicity's five year old is a bit fizzy so I accompany her on hacks on her old faithful, Champ, who provides a calming influence to help Archie settle. There is also Belle, a three year old who will be broken to drive this summer and also, hopefully, I will be helping back her too.





This weekend I am hoping to take Gayly on a fun ride, The Llandinam Mountain Event. Weather permitting of course, becaue it really has been quite crap, hasn't it?


Apart from that, well, we have new chicks in the fold after a broody hen got a present of fertile eggs. She hatched seven out of seven, we lost two but the rest are coming on fast.


Sadly we lost Bella, one of the battery hens. But Cinnamon has integrated wonderfully and is now living in the big house with the other girls.

Jedi has been to school camp, and had a wonderful time, abseiling, cayaking, orienteering, caving and a world of other things!!

The cats have been bringing me headless rabbits on a regular basis (eewwww!), I haven't seen my husband in just over a month, oh and I took this cracking pic of Harley;

Nice to be back :)

Good to see you on line again. I'm excited for you to be back in the saddle!
Pony club does sound ideal for your kids. Here we have 4H, also great for learning to ride and take care of horses.

Well hello there! Great that you are back, both in Blogland and in the saddle. The ponyclub sounds great fun. Is that you on the beautiful horse?

I have emailed you about a month ago to tell you that we have decided to name our foal Eavanaloma, which was one of the names YOU suggested! We call her Evie and she is a very sweet and beautiful foal. Photos of the birth (April 8) and more recent ones are to be found at my blog.
Please mail me your address, so I can send you a little thank you present for giving us the beautiful name ;-)

Hugs,
Carolina

Hi,

I hope it is OK to make contact via a comment, as you have no contact page.

I’m working on behalf of the RSPCA to help encourage supermarkets to do more for animal welfare and I think that your readers could be interested in helping.

For the first time ever, the RSPCA Good Business Awards is open to the public through the People’s Choice Supermarket award which means that people can vote for the supermarket they think is doing the most for animal welfare.

Further information on the award and the achievements of each of the shortlisted supermarkets is available at http://bit.ly/rspcapeopleschoice.

I hope you can help – please get in touch if you’d like to know more.

Sorry in advance if contacting you through your comments has caused any offense. We are launching a campaign about the living conditions of broiler chickens soon, which may also be of interest.

Many thanks

Stefan, on behalf of RSPCA
