Trim slim

This is the new slimmer version of Garbo. There is not much grass because of no rain this year and the yard owner has rationed the hay - so 'ta daaaah' - what do you think?

Just as well he's not in work is all I can say!!!

And 'only 12 days to go Garbo'!

Circle game with new mirror horse

Just posted on my other blog about the new horse that lives at the end of the arena. Garbo is intrigued and wants to get to know him a little better.

Our circle game now is an oblong, with a half circle on the non mirror side, and once he reaches the mirror he goes straight to the end and looks behind it.

Ok so been doing nowt

Been packing and getting Garbo's new place ready for him, and the stables ready for us and him... so had no time to play with Garbo or Marachino over the last two weeks. Except for one day when the new arena mirror had just been installed and all the horses were spooking in the school. I took Garbo in for some circle work and it was hilarious... you see he thinks himself in the mirror is some other dashing looking horse to say hello to. So every lap of the circle he would stop at the end of the mirror and pull on the rope to look behind or to sniff and say hi.

It was just so funny.
