Trippin' Around


UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 16 March 2008 | Views [623] | Comments [1]

So tired... ._. So really very tired. EmJ and I managed our first day of camp - a full house, none the less, with rather well adjusted scurrying.

We really did have a great time: it was a blast.

Up at 7:00am, we did various bits and pieces, but the story doesn't really start until we hit the stables. We swept the yards (or poop-scooped as it is known down there), groomed (quartered as we only did the essential bits) our horses - EmJ had three; Clancy, Sisco and ?? - I, on the other hand, had five. Rocky(the cheeky terror), Chiquita(a beautiful black Fresian who is an absolute sweetie), Hombrey(hairy Hombrey as he is known to me, a nice pony), Tobias(Toby - a steady 18 year old grey who is very patient) and Coyote(a sway back Palimino who is very quiet except when you're pulling up her girth!).

So then it was assisting, walking out with the riders on the trails, generally helping and running around.   We where both very tired by the end of it all, but it's has been so much fun.

We are both hoping to be 'on' the horses (assisting during camps) for most of the time - if not all of it.

Got to go - need bed for the next week.  Will update again soon though.

See ya - b.
