August Bank Holiday: pony, ferrets and dogs

28 08 2011

We’re having a lovely bank holiday weekend. We sorted out loads of stuff to go on eBay and then spent this afternoon out with the pony, riding and doing field maintenance.

We didn’t take the dogs out to the pony with us today as Shadow’s in season. There’s a bit of a power struggle going on with the dogs at the moment. Shadow is now considerably bigger than JJ and wants to be top dog. Although he was here first, he never stood up to her when she was a puppy and has let her walk all over him. Over the past week, though, she’s really started to try to assert her dominance and he’s started to get a bit annoyed. I really don’t know whether he’ll put her in her place or just ignore her though, so watch this space.

I’ve got the ferrets running round the living room at the moment. They are getting much better about biting now and we have now been able to clip their claws. They’ve had great fun playing with a bowl of water this week, jumping in it and over it and wrestling in and around it, so we’re going to let them have a little play in the bath at some point.

Useful website

14 03 2011

I meant to add to my last post, I had a recommendation for a really, really useful website. It’s called manage-my-horse.com and allows you to record and report on exercise, training, weight, health care, feed stocks, costs, anything you like really. It can be used for privately-kept horses or a business and the best part is that it’s completely free. There are also relatively-active forums and everyone seems very friendly.
