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...

Happy New Year to you!

Wow where did the rest of 2019 go? It seems to be a bit of a blur to me. Happy new year Honeychoppers. Whilst it might seem like a distant memory I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and new year. Mine was very quiet, I had 2...

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...

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...

And then boom … we come crashing back down to earth!

Happy Autumn Honeychoppers – as I write this blog, it has been raining cats and dogs all morning. We haven’t had rain for weeks on end and over last night and today, it just hasn’t stopped raining! Still, I shouldn’t complain as I have been saying for a while...

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...

Hello Honeychoppers, I hope you are enjoying this gorgeous Bank Holiday weekend – it’s a scorcher where I live! In fact it must be hot as I have got my legs out – and I seldom do that! Back in the show ring This month, after almost a full...
