The horse listener

Last night Sheila came along to listen to Honey! Straight away she said that Honey was unbalanced which stemed from the fact she cannot keep a possible vitamin in her diet! Also that Honey is happy with us but that we are taking things too slowly for her and she needs to be kept active! Honey does not like the fact that one of the other horses in the yard shows no respect for her owners and will not stand when being tacked up! She hates bad manners at feed time. It was a wierd experience and quiet a bit of what was said really did ring true. Today I am going for a pro-biotic to help with absorption although any other ideas very well come!!

In July we posted that Caitlin and Honey were slowly working at the join up method. We are pleased to say that since then we have managed to have Caitlin riding Honey at walk on the lunge. To night we are having someone come along to listen to Honey and see if there is anything else we can do to help her along.

Yesterday Caitlin was 15 years old. As her favourite film and musical was Annie when she was younger we thought we would suprise her with a visit to Eden Court. We picked the busiest performance and it was fantastic. Sue Pollard was a great Miss Hannigan. The star of the show had to be Danny the dog who played Sandy (soft coated wheaten terrier).
Later she had some friends over for a sleep over as usual not much sleeping was done.
We will post some photos later.

We have had Honey around a year now. Although Caitlin can sit on her back we have since learn that Honey had been running feral in the New Forest and had not been in human contact for the first 3 years of her life. So we have really gone back to basics, it has been a very long and sometimes not very rewarding. She has now accepted and joined up using the long rope method. So watch this space.
