Posy's first ever jump

Posy was very proud of herself today because she did her first jumps over planks which she claimed were very scary.  Posy did admit that her legs weren't quite as well co-ordinated as they might have been.  Luckily for Posy She doesn't plan to make her a show jumper.

She said that Posy was Very Brave.  I say that Posy was very inept.

Poor Hanuman

The vet has been back and pronounced himself pleased with my progress, but said that I must have another week off.  I like him even better.

He spent a lot of time in the stable with Hanuman.  She said that Hanuman was having an operation which would stop him biting me and climbing on Tilly.  Poor chap seemed very groggy afterwards.

Eating money

The farrier came and replaced my hind shoes but then had to come back and do it again because She still wasn't happy.  I noticed that She brought Her purse down but that it remained firmly shut.
This may explain why She then forgot about it.  Meanwhile, Hanuman found the purse and had fun playing with the contents.  She returned to find money fluttering around the yard including a number of wet, chewed £10 notes.  She ran round picking it all up and took the soggy currency indoors to dry out.  She is hoping than when She's ironed the notes out they will pass for legal tender once more.

Hanuman tried to look winsome but it didn't seem to be cutting any ice.
Hanuman offers to help clear up

Poor me

Here I am with an ice pack inexpertly bandaged to my leg.  The vet says that I have thrown a splint and must rest (what a nice man).

The last set of shoes I had put on were like skiis and I found it quite difficult to organise my legs, especially when one shoe starting flapping.  For some reason, instead of making the shoes the same as the World Class people said, Her farrier took it upon himself to make the extensions wider and the trailers longer.  This made it difficult to walk, and She is apoplectic with rage and has summoned the farrier to explain himself and rectify the situation.  I wouldn't like to be in his shoes (even though I am ha ha).
