|Possibly my first equine encounter?! Sadly photo isn't dated, but my sis wasn't born yet so i'm going for '86-'87|
|Concrete proof my mother only has herself to blame for my eq-diction|
|Further proof of the role she played in equine journey|
I caught the tail end of the tv-segment Riders Club on Eurosport Wednesday evening when I got in late from work & didn't make it to the yard #LeSadTimes

Congratulations to Zara Phillips & Mike Tindall on the birthday of their daughter (adorably named Mia Grace) earlier in the week ... talk-about a power-couple; sod Brangelina these two combine 2 of my favourite past-times to watch: Horses (obvs) & Rugby...although being Irish - patriotism makes it difficult for me to like English teams/players

Also congrats extended from Pampered-Ponies to Team GB London Olympic Gold medalist Laura Tomlinson (neé Bechtolsheimer) & her husband who announced they are expecting their first baby later this year.
Baby boom has hit EQ-land!
Completely unrelated to the rest of this post, but please cross fingers & toes for the Guru & her horse O who have an appointment at a vet Clinic in Belgium today to try and suss out why the mare has been so on/off lame for the past year & a half/two years.
She has been diagnosed with navicular, but how bad is it? What are the treatment options/injections? Is it the hereditary type or could L breed from her? Would the mare be more comfortable retired?
So many questions that I hope she gets answers to!
|Fingers crossed this Happy Healthy Horse returns!|
PPS: I vehemently do not condone riding without a helmet - nor does my mother for that matter - what can i say the 80s were a diff time i guess. Ask calvin Harris about things being acceptible in the 80s (or at least i think that is who released that song...but please correct me if i am wrong)
