    mumbled "7 Months Later"


    7 Months ago, I got one of the sweetest horses ever. The Scriptwriter was badly mistreated when he was rescued. He's grown up so much and put on loads of condition. I'm just so proud of my sweet boy.
    The picture: I finally let him out earlier. He was in his box for a few months due to the bad weather. I could only bring him out by hand or lunging. But he can't be lunged for too long because he's only been sound for a few weeks. I couldn't find my brown boots for him, so I had to use my good white ones. They're destroyed in mud now, but it's better than risking an injury. He was delighted to be out and was leaping about the place for ages before settling down and grazing. I took his rug off so he wouldn't tear it.
    About him again: He's not very trusting at all. I'm the only person he'll let touch his legs. We have to sedate him for the farrier because he gets so freaked out. He's around eighteen months now. He still looks like a proper baby, though. I slept in the same stall as him a few times, though. He likes to protect me. I absolutely love my boy to bits. <3 :* xxxxxx

    Thanks, he does, doesn't he. I was absolutely delighted when he started to put on condition and gain weight. <3 He is very cheeky once he trusts you. I can't wait to start riding him next summer. I can't imagine how many times i'm going to fall. :D

    Haha bless him, sounds a bit like a pony i know! A very sweet little pony called Beanie who is very gentle to nervous people but when you get to know him he is really cheeky! He tried nibbling my elbow the other day just because i was talking to my friend! Although he can't be ridden, i think if i rode him i would be straight off as soon as he sees any food! I am the only person he lets hug him too, and he falls asleep when i am rubbing his back :) Bless them both :)
