9. Not quite as planned.

Today hasnt quite gone as I planned that it would do, i woke up at 10 to 8 this morning sobbing, in agony and completely unable to move. I quickly woke jack up, and he helped me to get to the bathroom and move around until he had to go to work. Unfortunately due to the amount of pain that I was in it meant that I was unable to ride today. I spoke to my riding teacher and she said there was no point in my riding because of the fact that I had got hardly any balance.  However she thought that it would be a good idea for me to go up and brush gatsby before a small amount of time so I DID get Gatsby cuddles.
Still one of my favourite horses, to be honest I think this boy will always hold a special place in my heart I love him so much. 
After doing this I went to see Magic and ended up completely knackering myself. I got there at one and knew I had an hour before someone was coming to view one of the horses on the yard and I'd agreed magic would be in his stable while this process was happening as the horse in question is quite attached to him. So before they came I decided that it was time to walk magic out on the road for the first time properly. I'm quite lucky in the fact that where magic is kept there is quite a large footpath to walk on and he doesn't have to get to close to the road. Magic looked at everything we went past but he took it all in his stride, he actually walked out better going away from the yard than going back towards it. On the way back he wanted to stop every few strides but we managed it and got him back in the stable just in time. After the viewers had bought the horse and left I then bought magic back out and washed his white socks at first he didn't really understand and was a bit unsure of why he was having a hose pipe on his legs, but once he understood what I was asking he stood very still.  After this I groomed the rest of his body, including all four feet. I've got to say he was amazing for this, he picked them all up again without being bribed and stood nicely and quietly for me. The thing I am working on the most at the moment is his ears,magic will let you touch everywhere but his ears. So today I got his lick out and my mum gave him that while I slowly started touching his ears. I didn't do this for to long before I put him back in his stable and told him how much of a good boy he was.
Selfie with the pony, he's growing so much and no matter how much pain I am in he always puts a smile on my face. This was also his first proper walk out on the roads.

Handsome boy posing for the camera. 

As you can see the pony is very inquisitive and likes to take a look at everything. 
After doing all of this it was time to pick up jack, I'm now completely shattered and curled up in bed while the other half plays on the playstation. I'm doped up on quite a few strong pain killers so I really don't have the energy to post much more than this so I am now off to bed.  Night y'all

Until next time
Amber and Magic

Ps the one pence collection is still going strong :)


  1. I'm so sorry about your pain. I really hope they figure something out soon. :(

    Magic is such a good boy!! I'm so glad you got to take him on his first walk and he did so well.
