Spring :)


Melting is well underway, luckily with no rain so far, and Felix is shedding enough hair to make a small goat every day. 

We've had a couple of not-so-nice rides thanks to spring fever and a noisy arena, but it's seemed to calm down. 

Yesterday I got off my own lazy rear and pulled out the poles, even the scary ones for a "course" which we went over W/T/C very nicely.   I was pleased, since last year was so hairy with this type of thing.  Dressage work is also coming along nicely, with more work going into canter transitions.  We've started doing more simple changes, and I can get the occasional nice fly on one rein but not the other. 

I need to get back into lessons soon I guess.

Anyhow, here's come cute pictures I got the other day when I caught the little prince napping in the sun.


  1. Hi there! I am new to your blog. Felix is handsome! I don't think I have ever seen a Fjord do dressage. How cool!

    1. Hi Alison!

      I certainly think so, I must admit - had he been less cute I probably wouldn't bought him considering his history (check out the story from the beginning of the blog).

      the more "sporty" fjords actually do very well in dressage. Felix is a cross, and I'll never know what his father looked like - but he's very fancy when he wants to be! Technically we're eventers - or will be once I work back up to "jumping" more then a pole!
