I thought that a quick recap was in order – of what has happened with Amber since her big move to the East..
I love the fact that she is just down the road from me now 🙂 It makes me happy and I am saving both time and petrol..
I have managed to ride her bareback and got on without a leg up – wasnt for long but it was fun never the less 🙂
I have been on a few outrides on my own and even cantered which is unusual for me 🙂 But she almost goes better on her own – she spooks more but she doesnt buck!! Bonus!
I have also jumped her a bit and taken her for a dip in the dam 🙂 She is learning to handle cars and traffic quite well and dogs and sheep and goats lol She just does not like braying donkeys.
Other than that she is super unfit and doesn’t wanna go fast even I want to.. I tried to have a gallop on her and all she did was buck 🙁
I do like the ppl that ride there though.. They are all pretty friendly and helpful! It’s really encouraging 🙂
I am not sure if moving her to this stable was the best decision I have ever made. She doesn’t not seem happy or at the very least she does not seem well or healthy. She has no energy – which I attributed to the heat initially – but she has been running a temperature and has been lying down after meals – and the problem is that its been over a few weeks and not just a couple of days… It is stressing me out a bit. She also saw a dentist and had a tooth pulled but I have not heard anything since then or received any phone call or bill in the post? I am finding all this a bit concerning…
Although she has put on weight and her condition has improved, she has since become difficult to catch and also has cuts and swellings on her that she never had before…
I have not received one invoice since I moved there although I did get an sms for the outstanding amount when I asked.
I guess it is still early days but I am concerned about her well being and will need to monitor it and see how it goes..
