Summer evenings are the best

Yesterday evening was beautiful, the horses started to feel a little frisky and took the smallest things as an excuse to start a little running game. Two bikers came downhill, Barley had spotted them first…I think he’s the watcher in the herd.

Guys, bikers...get ready to go crazy!

Some more action

Then Barley spotted somebody riding on the far end of the pasture…needed to be investigated right away!

Good that they have other things except for eating to keep them occupated.

Time to breath and blog again!

Finally vacation time has arrived. Oh, what I have been looking forward to this, for the next few weeks I am going to breath deeply, will not hurry nor stress, will do things I haven’t done in a long time, yeah, like blogging… 😉 and will just enjoy all my little sweet moments.

Right now my DOH is watching telly, our dog is lying on the couch asleep and the cat is lying in my bed, also asleep. I made myself comfortable on the couch too, with my favorite blanket…the Swedish summer really rocks right now (yes, from time to time I enjoy a little sarchasm), a nice cup of coffe and listen to Enya.

This feels like a nice ending to a wonderful and relaxed day.

Now let’s see, what have we been up to?

In April we had some nasty spring storms, rug tucking storms. Another lesson learned, if the weather forecast says it’s going to blow with 25m/s (= 90km/h), make sure that the knots for the tail string are really strong (read: bomb-proof), otherwise you might find a surprise in the pasture 😉

He looks a little bit like from a commercial, he is running with the cool guys.

If you are a fashion-conscious horse, then this is the right rug for YOU! We have listened to horses and designed our rug so that it can be worn in different styles. If the sun comes out and the rug gets too warm, just follow the instructions. 1. Lay down and role, make sure to stretch so the string below the tail opens. 2. Turn your stylish butt into the direction the wind blows. Now you can wear your rug as a scarf! IMPORTANT: Safety advice! Act completely innocent in case your owner shows up!

But we also had some very nice evenings when it actually was warm enough to dare to put my breeches on and an English saddle on Barley.

Of course it’s not just riding, we even worked with the long line…

(may I just point out his nice butt? I am so proud of that butt ❤ 😀 )

We took long walks together…this is what I call them, he might call them ‘long picnics’.

But now we are in July and July means vacation time for me and some horsy time for Barley. Even though I sometimes have a huge knot somewhere in my stomach area, I know it’s good that he can be in a herd with other horses. Even though it’s still a fact that I either have a very clumsy horse or that he is really just low in rank, or a combination of both, but he is having the most holes in his ‘all-in-one suit’. In any case, I confince myself over and over again that he is more happy this way.

And they do look happy, don’t they ❤

Allright folks, more from us during this years vacation.

Cheerio and nighty night! 🙂

We are now up at 50 minutes of grazing.
Best part of the day! He sometimes even lifts his head…for very brief moments. Otherwise I think he is currentlt breathing through his ears.

One thing is also very interesting to me.
For the past two weeks he was ‘actively-resting’ again. After a little accident in the box where he had apparently big trouble getting up again after he had layed down (and/or rolled…who knows, he didn’t really tell), his back was sore and we needed help from an equine therapist for some massage, chiropractic and lasertreament.

As you can imagine he has a lot of energy right now and has become quite reactive.

But as soon as he is allowed to graze, a bomb could explode beside him and wouldn’t give a damn. 😂😂😂

Anybody else still trying to make the change on to fresh grass or are we the last ones? 😎
