Like the Old Days

Thursdays are always difficult.  If we want to ride out, we have to wait for the essie-kert (rubbish collection lorry) to go past otherwise things can get hairy but there is no set time for its arrival so sometimes we wait and wait and wait…..

So while we did this, I went down to collect Haakon.

I lead my old boy up the hill, out of his field and fed him his Turmeraid pellets along with a few conditioning cubes.  BeAnne and the hens lurked about hopefully but I doubt anything was dropped.  Haakon does not waste his food on others.

The essie-kert noisily came and went and we all breathed a collective sigh of relief.

It was a lovely day – perfect for going out.

Unusually BeAnne decided to come along too.

My two best friends and a glorious day.  What more could I ask for.

We even cantered up the track so Haakon must be feeling well.  The Turmeraid is making a positive difference for now Haakon as well as Lambie.

I am very pleased. I have got my old boy back.

BeAnne was going very well too.  She kept up beautifully and even had a good splash in a pool but the battery went on my phone so I didn’t capture her happiness.

I love days like these, like it was in the old days when we were all a bit younger.

    This is just great, it’s wonderful to see all of you happy. I’ve a question…does the wind ever slow down or stop? Is it always windy where you are?

    I share my turmeric capsules with my dog (he looks much like Her Maj only he’s gray) but where do you find the stuff for horses? My two mountain mares are getting up there in years, one is showing a bit of stiffness in her hocks while going down hill – she zigs and zags her way.

      Added: If you can’t get it in the country you are in, and are really desperate, I will get it for you and post it out to you. Let me know if I can help. Can’t rate it high enough.

    So glad the pellets are helping Haakon and Lambie! I’ve had to increase the dosage (sausages) for my old collie now but she’s still managing to leap about and chase balls. I see the company has many more products than a few years ago.

    I hope you don’t mind if I answer the question in the comment above; I am not connected in any way with the company. You can find pellets for horses at The Golden Paste Company in the UK.
