Breezy & Coughing Schoolies

No Breezy is not gone. But he has been moved to the other side of the barn.

Breezy has a tendon injury and in order to heal properly, he will need to be on stall rest for quite a few months.

Because Breezy is the King of the herd in the field with the rest of the school horses, he can become very anxious when removed from his buddies and he has become very herd bound to them. In moving him away from the rest of the school horses we hope we can keep his mind off of them when they go outside without him. Moving him to the other side of the barn also takes him away from all the busy-ness of the lessons and helps him to relax. The stall he has been moved to has more light during the day as well providing him with lots of sunshine during his time inside!

As well as Breezy being off, we also have a few horses off for a cough that seems to be going around. When a horse has a cough no matter what the reason, they shouldn't be ridden as this could make the cough worse and compromise their immune system and lungs (you wouldn't run with a cough due to the risks of pneumonia, it's kinda like that). Don't worry though, it should pass once the weather gets a little damper. But until then, please bear with us as we work the schedule around our resting furry friends. With so many horses on a break you may not be getting your first (or second) choice of horses this week or next.

Happy 2013!

Well it's been a whirlwind of a holiday season. Christmas and New Years have come and gone and I don't know where the time went.

Hopefully everyone had a safe and happy holidays. I stayed with the horses on Christmas night to feed and close up the barn (nope, horses don't take holidays).

The New Years was rung in pretty quietly up here, which was a relief. No scared horses from strange noises.

And with a new year comes a new office for myself which is amazing. The office is now open and, although I am still setting things up, fully functional. I am a very happy office manager.

Now the only thing left to do is get my malfunctioning computer fixed, which will be happening this weekend.

This also means that I will be able to post more updates, you know, once I get my computer back. Hopefully on Tuesday.

Lessons are now back to normal, but those students who have decided not to continue until June have lightened the lessons and I will be reviewing the schedule and possibly having to combine classes where I am unable to fill in the gaps.

We have officially bought Angel for the school string, but will probably be sending Zeta home withing the next 2 weeks due to her stubbornness when it comes to deciding that she doesn't want to do something.

That's about it for now. Warm wishes & the best of luck to everyone for 2013!
