when you just sit back and breathe a sigh of releif?
I had one recently. Since moving yards Forest can be ridden everyday, has put on weight, is happily in the field with another horse and has a bigger stable.
Its so nice to see him happy and be able to go down the yard and only worry about my horse. Of course if I see something wrong with his field mate then I say and get offered rides on the other horses. (I rode his field mate today!)
At my last yard I was expected to put the other horses before Forest so its nice to only do Forest for once. I have so much time on my hands now. The people at the yard are great and we all have a joke around. Any problems are said straight away and nipped in the bud.
I don't have to supplement hay in the field anymore as he has more grass out there. Although he is still on hard feed that has gone down loads. He used to have 2 meals, now he has 1 and that has also reduced loads.
Its like for once I can relax around Forest and concentrate on him. Its nice to have the other horses around and the possibility of riding them or going on a drive with them but its not expected of me.
So this is me breathing out and smiling!
What about other people, ever had a moment like this?
