My sister Naia is currently still boarding her horse at a barn nearby until the end of the period. My own horse, which I'll introduce to you later, is settling nicely in his new home. We turned him out this monday which he was very happy about. He's never had a big field to run around in, just a smaller sized paddock. He spent at least twenty minutes just playing around wildly on his own. Because he's still on his own for some weeks, we decided to adopt a friend. You'll see more of this mysterious new creature next time. Back to my horse, I realized I haven't introduced him to you yet. My haflinger+friesian+warmblood mix gelding is 8 years old, and has, in my opinion, the most fantastic name; William. He's just 16.3 hh and the most lovable and quirky horse I've ever met. Though he can be annoying and a little bit of a jerk sometimes, he never fails to make me laugh. I'm just working on getting him correctly balanced and in shape. Once our flatwork is correct we'll hop over some fences but for now I'm not too concerned about that. We also love to do groundwork to strenghten our communication and relationship.
Just one hour ago I went into the fields to get William back inside and was confronted with one of the most annoying things about owning a horse. He stared at me with his dark brown eyes and sweet face trying to compensate for his behauvior. His newly bought may I say, EXPENSIVE, blanket was, though still on his body, damaged and it wouldn't be easy to fix it this time. I wanted to take him back inside to prepare him for a light training but I guess I needed some time to literally cool down.
