Just make sure your mount doesn't stop dead when you are about to get belted and you'll be OK!

It's all in my fields

Just under the several inches of water.

(okay, it's a lot better than it was a couple of months ago)

Nice pics Phil. How did you get on with the SAA?
Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

Technically he would have had to be moving in the first place for him to stop dead........
Sorry, sorry, sorry
Seriously though, you've got to love a horse who's whole attitude screams 'Well, they're not hitting ME, why should I care?!' :lol:

Yup

so daisy, bonnie, Ebony? or is it johny.

That's Ebony- Johny was out too and I rode him for a bit later on.

if its ebony hows he coming along? still a bit shaka? :lol:

Very nicely- taking out his frustrations on Johny as Daisy was in season so he was somewhat confused as, being cut, he had all the desire and none of the performance. Rides very well and calmed down a huge amount though- though just a lazy b**ger with me.

I see mary, was steve over, and who are the guys in the back ground of shot 2.
Steve couldn't make it. That's Mab from here, Robert and another fellow who are interested in playing this year.

Daisy, nothing wrong with Daisy, :) well the steerings a bit wonky, the accel is slow, the clutch slips and the brakes can be a bit sharp, apart from that she's fine. :lol:

Just not as easily fixed with a lump hammer and a roll of gaffa tape- though it has possibilities...;)

You've not seen Julie's gaffa tape hoof repairs then...!

(I can't remember exactly what she was doing, but I think it was something to do with keeping a pad in place, and it took a lot of vet-wrap and gaffa tape)

Our particularly windy pony could probably give a landy a run in the emissions department, and my boy has got the squeaks.
