Well I thought that I had wrote a blog post yesterday but it turned out I missed it! But that's okay I'll share this video of attempting to lunge magic over poles.

Well today has been an okay day we have managed to get three viewings booked in two for tomorrow, and one for Monday (at the house that we really want). But only time will tell what is meant to be and that's okay, it's a slow process but we will get there in the end. As everyone likes to keep reminding me we have two months to find somewhere yet. We went to view another house today and it's safe to say it was HORRIBLE, there was one room I liked and the photo's looked NOTHING like what the house actually looked like. The garden was a health and safety hazard to say the least and it was absolutely awful! So that meant that we hadn't resolved any issues and also meant that there was more questions that needed to be answered.

After this we went to see Magic, I mucked out his stable and was originally just going to leave it at that, however he was being such a good pony that I decided that I would lunge him again today, I decided to make things more simple so we stuck to walk and trot walk today, sonny was in the school and it's safe to say that this doesn't phase Magic one bit at all. I can't wait to be able to write about our rides, and hacking out, and all the other things that we are going to do. He is coming on so well, he's not losing weight, he's developing muscles and he is looking great. His only small issue at the moment? Which to be honest isn't really an issue, is that he is got a very mild small amount of rain scold from being out in the field, even though he has a rug on, it's about a 8 inch patch on his neck, but it's okay it's nothing major and compared to last year I'll take a bit of rain scold.

This evening while watching t.v. I have finally got around to doing something about my debts, I've put a plan in place and am going to get on with getting my credit score sorted. I've also taken time to think about my finances more and what needs paying vs what people want! So while today hasn't been productive in the way I would have liked it to be it has been productive in other ways and that's what counts. Now just to wait for the post to come and the last few bits that I need towards sorting out my finances.

Until Next Time

These things are sent to try us

I really feel like I am about to go mad! This year is not getting off to a great start and that is driving me mad, I blame jack for breaking a mirror on the second day of this year! only joking! Well I told you all about my issues with my house over the weekend, I emailed and said that these things needed to be resolved or environmental health would be getting involved, well yesterday morning I woke up to a email saying I was going to be handed my notice and would have to find somewhere else to live. This sent my head in to a bit of a whirl wind as I've been looking for months for somewhere else to live and nothing has come up. Then we found a lovely house that was literally round the corner from where we used to live in oakwood, it was clean tidy and soooo nice! I rang up this morning and applied for the house to get a phone call back this afternoon to tell me that the house had already been let to someone else. To say that I was gutted is an understatement!

I've then spent some time looking on the internet and come up with 4 possibilities in a similar area, these are again newer houses that I'm going to be ringing up about tomorrow. So I don't want to put to much here because I don't want to jinx it.

Anyway on to Magic, mum and dad did his stable for me today as I hadn't slept a lot last night and was feeling really poorly. I then went over to my mums to meet her and she took jack and I up to Magic, mum is my official timer and recorder for when I am working with Magic. I was lucky because Magic was already in so I gave him a fuss and a stroke before getting him ready to be lunged. I wanted to introduce something new so today I decided to place four poles on the circle that we would be lunging on. We lunged both ways and he did kind of get the idea but magic being magic he got over excited and strong. We did lunge in both directions over the poles however when I thought that magic was getting to silly I took him away from the poles and just got him to lunge nicely on a circle without the poles. I then did this until he had calmed down and then gave him a rub on his favourite spot. I then popped him back in to his stable and put his nice warm rub back on. He is being so good recently and he seems to enjoy having something to do. He still only works every other day and at the moment he lunges for roughly 5 minutes each way. Next Monday this will change and he will go up to lunging 6 minutes each way.

Then we popped over to seeing my sister for a little bit and trying to help to set up Brody's kinnect for him but we weren't able to do that. Jack had a few issues with his family but I've learnt to just leave them all to it and let them battle it out between themselves. I'm now curled up in bed with the pooches. After Diesel had his Nail removed he's been really clingy, so it's safe to say that he doesn't leave my side very often. He's currently curled up on my feet with his blanket and it's safe to say he is very happy, he's feeling better but he's still clingy. He's got three more days of tablets and then it should be back to normal for the pooches so that they can start walking again.

Anyway I am off to watch Big Brother now, nothing like a little bit of mindless t.v. before heading off to sleep.

Until Next Time

Another hectic day, I really can't wait to be able to write you all a post when I can literally just sit here and say today I had a quiet day and it felt great! Who knows maybe we will get there one day! When I woke up this morning diesel was still yelping and obviously in pain so I rang the vets back up and got him an appointment. My mum picked us up to go to the vets and I had to carry the puppy all the way down stairs as he just couldn't manage stairs.

When we got to the vets the poor little man had the worst of times, I advised them that while he's not nasty he was in a lot of pain and when you looked at his paw he likes to chew it so that it might be best for now to muzzle him. Well that was an ordeal in itself after being told to force him in to a corner and trying it their way. I eventually discovered that my way much easier (which I think I already knew it would be) and that calm, quietly, slowly and freedom of choice was a much better option. They then needed to look at his paw, which even going near it sent him spinning in circles and yelping and no matter how tight I held on (with no help at all) he just wiggled his way out of it. Eventually a vet got a nurse who knew better than I did of the best place to grip him to come and hold him, although I'd be lying if I said that they didn't get a few choice words off me in the process! They eventually decided that his nail needed to be removed as it was stripped down and completely detached which meant he would need to be sedated. I agreed to this and agreed to waiting in the room for him, when he eventually came out he looked completely drunk, and was breathing really fast, the vet went to get his pain killers and then explained that he'd bled quite a bit due to the fact his blood pressure was so high cause he was pumping that much adrenaline around his body and that he'd been fighting the anaesthetic the whole time so not to be surprised if he flaked out. Well when we got in the car he decided the safest place and happiest place for him was to curl up on my knee and just lie there, which is exactly what he did the whole way home. Once I'd got him settled in his bed with plenty of water, we then headed over to my mums for lunch.

When we got home we decided that it was time to just chill out with the dogs and have a relaxing evening now this part did go to plan! Tomorrow is going to be another hectic day as I have got to ring the estate agents to get them to attempt to sort my house out although I have no doubt that they will fail to do it and if this is the case I will then be ringing up environmental health because I really am starting to think that this house just isn't safe to live in. Everything seems to be falling apart and I really have got to the point where I have just had enough. So for now I'm off to curl up with the puppy watch heartland and browse to see what houses are available for moving closer to magic!

Until Next Time

Today has been a long day and I originally wasn't going to post anything because I just didn't feel like writing I was in to much of a bad mood even though there has been some good parts of today, but in the end I got over it and just thought get on with it.

This morning I had a lie in as I actually managed to get some sleep, when we woke up Jack and I chilled and watch some t.v. in bed before it was time to go and see Magic. I picked mum up on the way so that she could get some video footage. I'd also got to pick up some bits (but I'll get on to that later). I tacked Magic up and got him ready and he was being a really good boy, he lunged in both directions happily and contently in walk and trot while Sonny was in the school. He doesn't seem bothered at all that there is another horse in the school with him he just seems to get on with his job. I asked him for canter on his good rein and was able to pick up a stride or two but at the minute he is still unable to stay in the canter.

After this we moved on to trying long reining, this isn't something that Magic is skilled at yet but in time I am sure that he will be. We went through the same process as we did on Thursday. Mum started off by walking next to him then eventually moved away and we kept Magic going, I then tried moving to standing behind him. To say that this is only the third time that Magic has ever done this he was really good.  He was calm collected and did do what I asked him to do. He still got a little bit confused but he did what was asked of him and I can't ask for much more than that. I just need to do more work on our voice cues so that he responds when long reining more. Once I had finished with Magic Lynn then put the donkeys in the school and I have  to say that it was the funniest thing that I have seen all day, Morris the donkey was actually free school himself, he was taking himself over jumps, cantering aroung! It was the cutest thing ever and it was so fun to watch (I do have a video but it is not yet uploaded on youtube).

Jack then took my mum and me over to see my sister, I'd got to pick some bits up off her too. See I've had an idea to make myself a bit of an extra income, I'm going to try to make bath bomb and wax melts to start with and then I will move on to making soap and candles eventually. I think that this is something that could be quite profitable in the long run it's just going to take me a while to get there and that's fine it is something for me to work towards, while Jack is working.

I then came home and this is where the day went down hill. The house that I live in is basically falling apart! I mean it's completely rubbish when we viewed it, it didn't really look like there was anything wrong with it but boy how wrong was I! So after making my wax melts and some bath bombs, I went to do the washing up and the bloody underneath of my sink decided to explode everywhere. So I tried to get in contact with the emergency repair people to be told it doesn't matter and they weren't going to do anything until Monday. Well the response they got back was to the point and abrupt and I do hope that they take me seriously cause I will be doing what I said I would.

But now I'm off to browse pinterest and watch Jock of the Bushveld with Jack and the dogs.

Until Next Time

A rather plain and simple day

okay so todays post won't be as  long as I am absolutely exhausted. I actually managed to get to sleep at a normal time 1am instead of 4 or 5am. I then got 9 hours sleep before waking up and feeling quite rejuvenated. Jack and I watched some T.V. for a little bit before heading over to see my mum and dad.

We took my mum to the supermarket got rid of the rubbish out of the boot of my car, then went to get myself some scales (to weigh my food up so I can be stricter with my fitness pal). I'm really trying to be strict with my weight loss so everything I eat gets added to the app, and I obviously have my fitbit as well so that the calories in vs out is more accurate. I do plan on doing a blog post about my weight loss journey but that will have to be another day as to be honest i'm ready for bed now.

After we had dropped my mum off and gone home, I made tea for Jack and I before taking some time to chill out and watch the soaps. After this was done I took the dogs for a walk, I'm back on schedule with walking the dogs every other day and working magic on the opposite day. We walked 1.2 miles, and they both behaved perfectly, the dogs are coming on so well but they do need their exercise as they are both so energetic, which means no matter how ill I feel I am just going to have to get over it and get on with it. I also plan on getting them a nerf throwing ball, that throws it further and faster so that they have a different form of exercise and that more variety can be added in to their routines.

When we got back we carried on watching soaps and I did some online surveys with opinion outpost, the only online survey thing that I've found where you really do make money from, you answer surveys for so many points, build up your points then the points translate to money and you can have it deposited into your account.

So here's just a quick remind if you haven't already follow this link and check out action coins!! https://actioncoin.io/ref/344075/ For those of you that do not know action coin is an online platform, up until the 1st of March you can sign up and get 1000 action coins for FREE, you don't add you're card details or anything then for every person that signs up following your link you get some referral points and for every 5 you got a bonus amount of extra action coins another 1000!

BEWARE!!! A not so happy story but a happy ending!!! BEWARE

So I'd like to start off by saying I am absolutely blown away with the response that my post on Nicki Williams has had and still is receiving for those of you that haven't read the post please follow this link....

https://thewaytoheavenisonhorseback.blogspot.co.uk/2018/01/con-artist-nicki-williams-beware.html

So this is a story from a good friend of mine that also had the same misfortune of having to encounter Nicki Williams. Jade met Nicki when I did, Jade was looking for someone to loan her beautiful horse Calli. She met Nicki who gave her such reassurance, Nicki did what Nicki is good at and spoke with such confidence that Jade felt comfortable in loaning Nicki to Calli (this was before I met Nicki so will not focus to much on it). Jade had a nightmare disaster with another horse she had on loan Bella, Magic's half sister I think, and this is how Nicki and I met, Nicki agreed to take on Bella with the agreement and portraying the idea that Bella and Calli would be together, Arthur then got bought in to the equation Jade's third horse. Nicki said that the three would be kept together as a herd and wouldn't be separated. The day that Arthur came down Nicki was supposed to be meeting me so that we could meet the transporter together, however the day passed and Nicki 'ended up in hospital' (she said at the time but I do not know whether this is true or not). I went to meet Arthur and unite him with Bella. Nicki then agreed with Angie (Who owned the field that they were on) that she would feed Bell and Arthur and I would go down to check on the horses while I was checking on Magic, and that she would be coming up to, Nicki kept saying that Calli would be coming to meet the others and they'd all be reunited. There was an agreement in place that Calli and Arthur where to be togethere as they did infact have a special pair bond, something that Nicki was told about.

A few months went on during which time my partners nan was really ill and I was up and down to devon a lot. During one of my trips to Devon my mum went up to check on the two for me and found that the gate was left with out a padlock on, my mum bought the padlock and put a new one on the gate, told Nicki the code and she was supposed to text Angie, I went up when I got back and bumped in to Angie's husband who had cut the padlock off. To say he was a horrible person to deal with was an understatement, he was ranting and raving about the horses and that the horses where now his and Nicki had never paid him. Nicki reassured me that she had done and I defended her which at the time got me nothing but abuse. I then spent three days looking for transport to move the horses (as they were under the control of horses act) and a place to move them too, I also had to pay the first two weeks up front and the transport upfront and then Nicki would pay me back, she did but it took a while and a whole lot of pestering! Just in time I convinced my yard owner to help me move them and off they went to there new home. Nicki asked if I could keep an eye on them and reassured me that she would pay me petrol as it was a half an hour drive there and a half an hour drive back! Well I got the odd £10 here and there but FREQUENTLY had to cover for Nicki who was late to pay the horses, I think she only went to them once when  I took her there (although she said more). I would go up every other day and feed them, and did the best I could by them when I had ill health myself, my partners nan was dying and I was in a bad situation with money. However around May/June time Nicki decided that Bella needed to go back to Jade as Jade rightly so wanted her horse back. From what Nicki told me at the time Bella was supposed to go back and Jades foal was supposed to come down and be Arthur's field companion (again note there is no mention of Calli coming and them becoming a 3). However Nicki then threw a fit and tantrum and stamped her feet that they had got to go on a certain date and that Jade had to take the pair of them, Nicki didn't come for the horses to be returned she left that job to me. Which I told her I didn't feel comfortable doing. The horses went back to jade in a poor state, something I wish I could have done more about but I honestly did my best for them at the time.

Fast forward so many months and I've fallen out with Nicki, my mums been doing some research in to her and we come across a post finding out that Nicki had abandoned 20 animals that were seized in I believe to be October (which was around the time that I was first being introduced to her and getting to know her). Then on the 5th June Nicki was banned from having animals for 5 years, she pleaded guilty to 4 counts of not doing right by her animals (20!!!), here's the link https://www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk/woman-who-abandoned-20-animals.

After coming across this I showed it to Jade and we quickly realised that one of the 20 animals was infact Calli. Calli was the only animal that they hadn't managed to track down the owner to I think. Jade and I both spent ages making phone calls, sharing posts on facebook and trying to track down where calli had gone. Now here comes the happy ending for Jade at the very beginning of the year a very honest person came across Jade's posted and admitted that she had got Calli, Calli will be returned to jade and she will finally be able to get her horse back, but the other side to this story is due to Nicki's actions a poor little girl got a pony as a birthday present to have to have it taken away from her. This woman has caused so much pain and hurt that didn't need to happen, there was no need for any of it if she had just been honest and this is another reason why I feel like it is my job to make as many people as possible aware of what she has done!

I hope that I have managed to do Jade's story justice that it deserves, and I hope that you all continue to share that as until everyone knows about her there is a chance that this woman can carry on doing exactly the same things over and over again! 11!!

Today has been a hectic day but it's been a good day, I didn't sleep the worlds best light night going to sleep at 4 am this morning. However my mum and dad had agreed that as they were helping me with Magic today that they would pick me up at around 10.30am so that I could exercise Magic while they did his stable. I woke up let the dogs out, and had a bagel and honey before breakfast before heading off to meet mum and dad, I always walk towards which ever way that they are driving (in my head this helps them to save petrol).

When we got up to Magic I could see that he was quite excitable, I had text Lynn asking Lynn to leave him in for me while the others went out so that I wouldn't have to go searching for him through muddy fields. This isn't something that Magic really likes but is something that I think that he needs to get used to as he can't always have his own way. I started off by popping Magic's cavesson on and his roller, I decided to leave his bridle as I wasn't feeling 100% and he wasn't being 100% willing so I didn't want to start a battle that I couldn't finish. I then attempted to walk Magic down to the school calmly and quietly, although Magic had other ideas and got all excited running around all over the place, even standing on my foot!

When we got in the school Magic was still incredibly hyper, he just wanted to be with his friends, but I wanted him to do work. As this is something that Magic isn't used to I decided that we wouldn't really try anything new today so we stuck to just lunging to the left and the right. Magic was extremely lively to start with including bucking, kicking, rearing, cantering full force. This is the first time that I've ever really seen Magic like this but at the same time it was fun to see, he wasn't being nasty, just cheeky and a bit naughty. We lunged both ways, 5 minutes each way. While I attempted to keep Magic calm and at a walk and a trot it would appear that Magic had other ideas, so I soon realised that he had got to just get the fizz out of his system and then we could do some calmer work. It took a little while but we got there in the end. He lunged both ways in walk, trot, some uncontrollable canter, and finally some asked for canter (something that he had never done before). Magic soon realised that he wasn't going to get away with not working and that he needed to work and behave to be able to go out with his friends, so while I didn't aim to teach him anything new, he did learn something new. As you will see from the video below there were a few less than perfect moments but it was all fun and games.

Mum and Dad then took me to Risley Saddlery, Dad bought me an extra long lunge line that I plan to cut in half and use for long reining magic so that it's long but it's not too long that I am falling over it. I was also surprised that he bought me a new blue bronte jacket that my mum will then embroider with my name, Magic's name and a picture of Magic. This is something that I have always wanted, so I was really excitied about it.

I'm now curled up watching big brother with the dogs. I would just like to say I am so happy by how far my post on Nicki Williams has got and I am so glad that it is reaching so many people and I really do hope that this can make a difference. So far the post has reached over 400 people and the post is still going up so please keep sharing and let as many people know about this horrible woman as you can do!

Until Next Time
