Where did the summer go !?

Exactly that ...where did the summer go?  It seems like only a few weeks ago that we moved to our new yard and here we are nearly at the end of the summer already.   We have definitely enjoyed the last three months at our new yard, organising our grazing and our stables, etc.  We've had lots of time to ride, either hacking out or schooling in the menage. 

Santana seems to be really happy and is looking great at the moment, although he's slightly fat having managed to sabotage my electric fence energiser while I was on holiday and make his escape into the hay field.  He was put back every day but by then he'd realised that the electric was off so as soon as no-one was looking off he went again!  Cheeky monkey!

Anyway, we've now negotiated a field move to a field much closer to the yard, like literally 2 minutes away - how good is that!?  We made the move on Wednesday and all ponies have settled in well together like they were old mates all the time. 

Santana, Rambo, Ned and Robin (in that order)

This was after Santana had pranced around the field stargazing and with his tail stuck straight up in the air like he was an arab stallion.  I didn't have the heart to remind him his carefree colt days were long gone!

Happy in his new field


  1. He looks great, Jooles! Glad everything is working out at the new place.
