View Full Version : My visit to Cinders!
17th September 2009, 11:44 AM
Yesterday we made the long journey to see Cin, the night before i was really nervous and wondered whether i was making the right decision, thankfully it went really well and i'm so glad i went!
Managed to fix a smile on my face so thankfully there was no tears, although i felt rather emotional seeing her little face again! Cin seemed pretty pleased to see me or maybe she was just pleased to see the bag of carrots i brought her :p she whinnied and started mugging me for carrots :lol:
Can't tell you how lovely it was to see her again, she looked exactly how i left her and despite me being the pickiest person ever, no matter how hard i looked i couldn't find even one fault with the way she looked or her care. It was perfect!
It's like a fairytale ending which makes me teary with happiness, she's got the most idealic home, a wonderful owner, miles and miles of beautiful countryside for hacking and a home for life! Her owner adores her and was telling me how proud she feels riding her as everyone admires cinders :) Cin has really fallen on her feet and apart from missing her i thankfully have no regrets about moving her on, she's got the life of luxury!
I did get some pics on my phone but still haven't been able to get them onto the computer, when i do i'll post them :)

17th September 2009, 12:18 PM
Oh that is great to hear!!
Im so pleased you found a 6* home for her, she is a very lucky girl!!! Big hugs and well done for finding her an awesome home

So glad to hear that she is happy where she is living now!
I think that would be the worst thing if you weren't happy but like you said if you've now got no regrets shes in the best place she could be!
Can't wait too see the pictures!

17th September 2009, 06:24 PM
oh i didnt know you had sold her (shows how long i havent been on here)
i used to be piebald cob lover by the way.
pleased to hear she is being well looked after.
do you have another horse now?
17th September 2009, 07:07 PM
thank you, i'm equally happy!
sparkie- hey! i often wondered how you were, don't think i've seen you on here for years! yeh, i sold her back in may this year so not long ago, i do indeed have a new one. Technically moved onto horses 2yrs ago but sadly the TB we bought had lameness issues pretty much from day one and is now retired. But in april i got another new horsey, a neurotic 8yo who's giving me lots of fun and excitement lol what have you been up to since you were last on here? x

17th September 2009, 09:28 PM
So glad you managed to go and see Cinders, and fantastic to hear she's happy in her new home, at least you know, she 'is' being looked after, as well as you expected. :D
17th September 2009, 09:57 PM
Thats nice to hear!
been up to all sorts, moved house in april, got engaged in march and i now own a puppy. Hehe.
as for horses we have about 6-8 new horses since i was last on. They are keeping us busy.
will have to get some new pics uploaded at some point.
17th September 2009, 10:28 PM
great news, so glad that it's all gone well and that you have no regrets. Very pleased for you.
17th September 2009, 11:27 PM
Aww, that is just brilliant!
Cin has really landed on all four hooves. Its great that you can stay in touch like that as well. Sometimes I forget that you don't have her anymore! xx
18th September 2009, 03:53 AM
aaah thats fabulous!
So pleased to hear that my favourite orange pony is living the life of luxury in her new house
18th September 2009, 10:53 PM
thanks, it's definitely put my mind at rest, not that i doubt her care in the first place tho!
Sparkie- you've been rather busy! congrats on getting engaged!
susan- i know lol she's still a regular topic of conversation and hearing her updates makes it feel like she's still part of my life which is really nice! x

21st September 2009, 04:50 PM
That's great news xx
11th August 2011, 08:31 PM
sorry to drag this thread back but did you ever show your pics?
its been a while since i been on and i'd love to see her again
11th August 2011, 09:15 PM
I'm glad she's doing well, I remember your posts about her and Simone. Do you still have Simone?
12th August 2011, 11:55 AM
sososo pleased xxx
12th August 2011, 09:54 PM
I doubt Kirst will be on here for ages so I'll cheekily answer for her and say that yes she still has Simone (as far as I know that is) but she's not ridden anymore as had problems with intermittent lameness (if I remember rightly) and she also now has Molly who she's doing really well with and is very soon going to affiliate - AREN'T YOU KIRSTY!!!! Lol - this could all be wrong but its how I recall it anyway!! xx
13th August 2011, 12:00 AM
I can't believe this thread is from 2009! How time flys.
Wonder if there have been anymore updates on the lovely Cinders? x
13th August 2011, 04:06 PM
lol I was soooo confused when i first saw this, was gonna say i didn't remember posting this!
Can't believe she's been gone 2yrs!
And Welly has pretty much summed it up, still have simone but she's not 100% sound so pretty much retired but still a happy ponio and molly is definitely sticking to the unaffiliated stuff unless she pulls up her socks asap! lol
Pie- haven't heard any more updates recently and haven't seen her since this post as she's quite far away but last i heard she was being spoilt and loved very much!
14th August 2011, 10:26 AM
Awww thats fab :) Sounds like you chose the best home for her xx
