Hi All!!! I think I’m overdue a picture post so I took plenty of our long weekend!!!
Started with a long hack on Friday with my best friend on my other friend’s horse.
Tyson is 20 years old, 16’2 TB x WB, an ex eventer and has bone spavin so isn’t suitable for schooling or jumping, but he’s a lively type and isn’t showing his age or illness recently! His owner has lost his confidence with him and has bought a new horse, so my friend is riding him lots and he’s doing great. She’s an instructor so I get lots of instruction, wanted or not, on our rides lol
In the woods, snow still on the ground!! With another lady from the yard and her 5 year old Section D Pedro, another live wire!!!
Bertie enjoying standing around
Me and Bert when we got back, sporting lots of pink!!!
Excuse the shaggy un-groomed look he’s currently sporting, the haircut is imminent I promise!!!!
New bad habit I taught him – having a treat whilst on his back
In his field – the hunkiest backside you ever did see
Mooching for water…..
Bit of a dash!!!!!
The monster gelding field…..
Chillin, cos I is coooollll
Look at my moon boots
This is Tyson’s owner and her new horse Max – 15’2 tri coloured cob, 7 years old. He was bought as a confidence giver and although he’s a little underweight and has had little schooling, he’s been very good so far
Big Bertie beast having a few treats (sugar free polos, of course!!!) He’s actually so lazy he won’t move forward to get the treats, but would rather stretch his neck as far as it goes
Eating my thumb??
Now that is a roman nose and a half!!!!
Kiss my moustache….. it’s minty!!
We did another long hack (proper cardio workout!!) on Saturday then I gave him Sunday off, which he was happy about and ran away from me looking rather cheeky, as you can see
And a lovely picture of my happy boy cantering off to chill with his friends
Thanks for looking, the next pics I post will be of his severe haircut – so hairy horse lovers, enjoy these while you can!!!!!
Looks like you had a fab Easter big hugs to Bertie xxx

Hehe have to agree with Jane its allowed when they are yours! lol
On my hack the other day I needed to tighten my girth and let Max have a quick picnic which I had some sharp comments for from a young girl who had tagged along uninvited.
If I let him have a snack that is my business, he doesn't snatch at grass and walks on no problem when asked to.
Bertie is loving his life at the moment from tose photos and he's is such a lovable dude
