I mentioned moving the equines rather a
long time ago and I haven't really done a proper post on the matter
since then so here we go. If you'll take a look at the photo above
you can see they've all been moved safe and sound, but the question
is where have they been moved to? Although if you look at the post
title it does kinda give that one away, yes they've been moved next
to the river.
But more on that in a bit because now I
want to show the photos of our stables being moved yes we had them
moved too, here they are with the roof and doors off, looking a
little over grown out the front. Also I got to help take them down
which was actually quite good fun, odd I know.
And this is them with the whole front
and roof taken off.
Here's the roof after it had been
loaded up, not all of the stable parts could be moved like this due
to weight limits but the roof was ok.
And now this is the stable going up on
the new land, as you can see they are fairly sheltered by the
conifers which is nice.
And finally this is the roof going on.
Done, one four block complete with
horses and the beginnings of a nice black paint job, that has sadly
had to be put on hold due to rain, but let's hope we can get that
done some sunny day soon.
Now on to what we've got at our new
yard, well we have 7 gates 3 of which are metal yeah that's right
we're living the life! Fine so we haven't got much here in fact we
don't even have water we have to bring it from home, but that's
working out ok for now, while we can still drive it down but I think
it'll get hard when we can't drive down in the winter.
Here's a quick pic of our winter
forage, see plenty for all they are 300kg bales, the horses are
loving the stuff and all putting a nice bit of weight on for the
winter, now while on the note of food I have news about Tipper.
This is an old photo of Tipper as I
haven't had the camera with me the last few days. Sometime ago we had
the dentist come out to do Tippers teeth but after taking a look he
said that Tipper was going to need a lot of work done, and we all
agreed that he wasn't going to be well behaved enough to have it done
without being sedated. So Niko got done that day instead, and we had
to book the vet to come at the same time as our dentist but the vet
let us down the first time which was a real shame because of how long
the waiting list is for the dentist. Well anyway we re-booked and
this time we weren't let down and it all went very well so now Tipper
is munching with the best of them, which is lovely to see.
But now back to the new yard I've shown
you the gates, food, stables, and horses so now to the river and well
here it is in all it's muddy splendor, it's actually pretty nice to
be next to the river and we've been informed that it hasn't flooded
for years and years, but having said that I wouldn't believe a word
from the person that told me that so I guess I am just going to have
to see for myself.
And as I oh so slowly come to the end
of this post I'd like to point out a few other things we have here,
post and rail on some parts, a road literally next to us, a creepy
shed, some really big holes, and lots and lots of junk left here by
our beloved lazy person who will not be named. But honestly it's
pretty good here so no worries.
Oh and finally before I stop going on
Halloween is nearly here so expect to be seeing a spooky post around
here. Well that's it from me now I hope you are all having a truly
glorious time of life, if not just a good time will do.
Congratulations if you read to the end
of this long slightly rambling post and thanks.
