Update post

Just a quick post from me today, sorry I haven't posted in a while, it's not even that I have been that busy I just haven't been on my laptop much recently and updating from my phone is a pain!  So what's new? 

Magic is doing really well it's been a few weeks since I've seen him but he's good! Last time I saw him he was letting me touch him willingly and he was following me (or more I was following) and playing with him around the field! He's being delivered on the 10th Of October (which would have been my Nan's birthday), his stables sorted, I know what bedding I'm using. Now all I need to do is sort out feeding, worming, dentist and the farrier! Yeah not much at all, next joke lol. I've sorted out some rugs as my amazing riding teacher has kindly offered to give me some rugs for him. So that's all good. 

Now on to the riding, I've been back riding either two or three weeks, since I broke my hand. It's going really well, my jumping is much more fluid and calmer. Ever since I got my new air body protector I have almost got a new confidence when it comes to jumping. Our flat work is  getting there slowly but surely I just need to build my stamina up more. I've been going to the gym again to lose more weight at the minute it's only once a week but I'm hoping to go more often soon. 

What else? Hmm, Jack's got a new job, he's now working as a football steward. While the work isn't full time it is definitely better than nothing and it is also something that he seems to be really enjoying so that always helps! He's also looking in to joining another stewarding company to do all the big horse shows next year and also all of the festivals. 

Oh and finally my health! It is still not 100% but I am slowly getting there, slowly but surely. I had an endoscopy about a month ago that came back all clear and I haven't been being as sick unless I get really stressed out so I'm trying not to do that to often. I am now booked in for another series of tests in the middle of September to see how fast my food is digesting, so hopefully this will give me the answers as to why my stomach is not quite right. 

But that's all I can think about to post at the minute. Jack's at work tomorrow, and I've got a lesson on Gatsby. I'll be back tomorrow with another post. I'm going to try to get in to blogging more often again but I won't make any promises. 

So until next time

  1. Thank you! :) still need to resolve a few problems but I do reallylikeit :)

  2. Have you been tested for celiac disease? Also my boss has this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gastroparesis which might be what they are looking for if they are checking the speed you digest things. I have my fingers crossed these tests give you a definitive answer. :)

    I wish I could help you with all of that stuff with Magic, but honestly everything is so different over there I have no idea... I am glad you're getting a farrier lined up immediately. Everyone around me seems to think it's okay to not trim them until they are three and start riding, but they need to be trimmed at a young age to prevent problems. I learned that the hard way with Chrome. I'd ask your vet about deworming. Weanlings have different requirements from adult horses.

    I still think it's really cool that Magic was born on the same day as Chrome. May 19th. So cool!

    Congrats to Jack on his job!! Oh and I'm glad your hand is better.
