It all started yesterday with the cleaning of the tack.
While my guest and I were out and about (eating white pudding and shopping), Daisy was hard at work. Obviously, she had help, or woolly support.
We are off to a show tomorrow – Shetland Spring Show schedule **BLAIR QUALIFIERS.
(I have to say I am not quite sure what “Blair Qualifiers” is but it is all good experience for Daisy riding Kappi and Bjørn on Taktur, who needs to get over himself about girlies and girly smells).
I spent the morning creating a Stallion Badge – (please feel free to message me if you quickly need one).
And, today, we were all washing.
First up was Taktur.
He was not happy, but he had a full bath. Handsome Princes don’t just appear, you know. Beauty needs work. Hard work.
And then it was Kappi’s turn. He had a bath too. All objections were ignored.
Being my daughter, Daisy made a list. A lovely list. A proper list. In this family, we love lists.
Daisy to filled the horse-van with all that she (and Bjørn) will need. I added string and a radio.
After washing the horses, I realised I was soaked because I was stupid enough to wear the wrong clothes. They are now in front of the stove, drying, ready for tomorrow.
So, an early start and all your winning vibes please. The forecast says rain. I hate horse shows in the rain. I will not be wearing my happy face if I get wet.
