Frog Spawning Ground
Sunday, 01 March 2009

Not really horse related but fascinating. I found a frog spawning ground in the ditch behind the arena. They were very active this morning. I took a couple of pictures to share with you:


Inconsiderate Motorists
Saturday, 28 February 2009
Horses have trotted along our roads longer than cars but ignorant drivers actually speed up or beep when they spot horse riders using the road. Whilst in our area the biggest majority of motorists are considerate there are one or two who are going to be responsible for killing someone. When this happens will they be charged with 'manslaughter' or will it just be considered another accident?
Side Pass Practice Polly
Saturday, 28 February 2009
Practising side pass and lifting feet without contact with Polly on the ground. She moves the front ok but tends to drag her back end. Need to work on that a bit more. Polly loves to conserve energy!! She backs by the tail very nicely. Handy if you need them to reverse out of a trailer.
Side Pass Practice Harley
Saturday, 28 February 2009
Practising side passing and lifting feet with Harley on the ground. Harley will be 3 in June. He is still a bit young and his attention span is limited. He's good all the same considering we dont use the halter or line. For a finale he stands on podium. He loves standing on the podium!!
Side Pass Practice Magpie
Saturday, 28 February 2009
We took a few short videos today on the mobile phone of us practising side passing on the ground without halters or lines. We started practising last week. Still have a way to go but we are making progress. These are Magpie's 3 clips
More Dozing Horses
Saturday, 21 February 2009
Bit more from last Sunday afternoon. For a finale, Polly lets out a huge snore!
