well i have finally managed to get up to date with reading everyones lovely comments on my blog! I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone that still comments on my blog. I really do appreciate not only the feed back but also the help that you guys give me. I feel that by writing a blog, I have created a whole online support system I know that might sound insane but it's just how i feel at the moment.

Magic is coming on in leaps and bounds, he still has things that he hates me doing. Like at the moment it's brushing his tummy because he's all knotted from the mud, the length of the fur and the fact that it changing from a baby winter coat to by the looks of it a nice summer coat. He's got loads better at having his feed put in to the point where I now just go in and put the food on my own. He's really getting better with doing that. He's come on in leaps and bounds about having his head collar taken off all though I'll admit we battled with this for a while but in the end we got there, and he's growing at a nice steady pace, not to fast or slow just in his own time. Magic's also coming on really well with all the things he's learning. For example the other day while Lynn rode out on the roads with her horse stan, I walked out with Magic to get him used to being on the roads. He was a bit excitable to start with about it but by the end of it he had got the idea and was really happy with it. He will also now walk around while I hold him in one hand and casper in the other hand. While we have only really tried this on the yard I still feel like it is a good progress from him to be making, so I am really proud of him. He's making massive achievements and just doing really well. He truly is a fantastic horse.

But for now i'm off to get some sleep and chill out and watch life and death row.

Until Next Time
Amber, Magic and Casper

Well it's been a while since I have posted and lost has changed since the last time I posted on here. So the first thing that I have got to tell you all is the fact that I have now moved out of living with my mum and dad, I've got a nice little flat not far from them and not far from Magic, and share a flat with my boyfriend who is here most nights. The flat's nice and homely, it's small but it's something that I've gotten used to. 
Aha i love this photo of the Mr and I on the way to the pub earlier. 
The next thing that I've got to tell you all is that Magic has finally been gelded, it was horrible to watch and something that I will definitely never want to see ever again but he seems happier now that he's been done. He was never a angry or mad horse before but he is even quieter now. I haven't done much in hand work with him recently due to being really unwell but I have still got to see him lots which I've really enjoyed. He's currently measuring 15hh on his bum and 14.2hh on his withers and he's not even one yet. I plan on starting to bit him when it gets to summer. He'll only have a simple happy mouth snaffle in which will connect to his head collar to start with and then will move on to his bridle. At the minute he isn't looking the worlds best because he's shedding his baby coat and winter coat in to his summer coat and because of the breed that he is it is quite long on his tummy so it has matted in places. 
My midnight Magic, I think that he is losing a bit of weight at the moment but I am sure that is due to him growing.
I also rode Gatsby for the first time in roughly a month on saturday, it wasn't the bet riding that I have ever done and I only rode for roughly 40 minutes. We did a lot of work on riding with out stirrups because this is how I get my seat the best. We then moved on to doing a little bit of canter work but due to my stomach problems I found that this was quite tiring. I'll be riding Gatsby again on Saturday but it is safe to say that it felt amazing to be back in the saddle. While I love having Magic I do sometimes wish I had got something that was older that I could ride but I would NEVER change Magic for the world, or all the money in the world. 
He's starting to get his dads mane coming through (his dad was a fresian x clydesdale but had more fresian). I know that I need to trim his mane but honestly I just love it.

My final bit of important news is the fact that I have finally got a dog. A week after I moved in I drove for over an hour (well the boyfriend did) to get Casper, he's a white Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He's just over one year old and was free off gum tree. I have reason to believe that he wasn't very well looked after by his previous owner due to the marks that were on him when I got him and the fact that he was really under weight. However now he enjoys his long walks and eats loads. So he's starting to look healthier and put weight on again. 
Meet Casper, aka, the friendly ghost. More pictures to come of him soon. 
But for now i'm off to sleep as I have had a really long but enjoyable 21st Today, oh yeah did I forget to mention it was my birthday. But before I go to sleep I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has made my birthday as amazing as it was, it's been a really good day and I have really enjoyed myself :D. 
Some of my amazing birthday charms :D 

Until Next Time 
Amber, Magic and Casper.
