Let’s go & fly a kite… (a 16.3 large chestnut kite!)

Sometimes its so easy for the vets to say “just walk them out in hand” HAHA! I thankfully survived 4 weeks of walking Gerry out in hand every day. We started with 10 mins per day and increased in small amounts weekly until he was walking out for 30...

The good news we’ve been waiting for..

We’re back, bearing good news! Gerrys surgery went well. He went in to hospital on Monday 2nd December and was home (minus one 4cm piece of bone) by the Friday night. He managed to stay injury free being put under anaesthetic too – which was always going to be...

It’s all about Your Horse LIVE!

November! My favourite month, not only is it my birthday but its also the month I get to fly down south and visit team Honeychop! We had a fantastic time at Your Horse LIVE 2019. The event was jam packed with fantastic shows and demonstrations, shops with amazing bargains...

Who turned down the temperature?

Is it just me or did the temperature just suddenly drop one day and just never rise again?! Welcome to autumn I guess 🙂 Poor Gerry is still lame. That’s been 17 weeks now since he did his check ligament, and 28 weeks since he went off initially. That’s...

Happy autumn!

Is it just me or does blog time come around quicker every month?! I can’t believe it’s the end of September already. That’s 5 months since Gerry first went off now! It feels like a lifetime. Hopefully he’s going to be in a place soon where we can start...

Is the long road to recovery nearing end?

It’s been a busy month! I kicked off August down in Buckinghamshire at the National side saddle show. It was my first time there and it was absolutley amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am really glad I went. I had planned to take Gerry with me obviously so...

Who turned up the heat?

Who turned up the heat! That’s right, it’s been hot in North East Scotland too! It’s nice to have a normal summer again – where one minute its 20 degrees and the next minute its raining, not compared to last years constant heat and total drought! I much prefer...

Pick yourself up and dust yourself off!

So the good news is that Gerrys back legs are now 100%! Hooray! The swelling has reduced and the vets say it may never be completely gone so I am happy with him just being sound and not in any pain. The vets were booked to come out and...

Welcome summer!

Sadly May has been and gone out the door again and Gerry’s still on boxrest. He is being reviewed again at the beginning of June and I am really hoping he can get back out to his field. He’s done really well to have been box rested for 7...

Easter sunshine is good for the soul, box rest..not so much.

Its been a super busy April! Though I felt like I didn’t have much planned, a lot has happened! The last weekend in March was a busy one setting us up for the month ahead with dressage on the Saturday and a show on the Sunday. Dressage didn’t go...
