Firstly, apologies for being so quiet on the blogging front; the month after Christmas is usually a quiet time and I’d hoped to be writing more, but there was quite a lot to do and I didn’t find the time.
The last two months have been up and down; the weather has been atrocious and Max has had a couple of health issues: firstly a muscle tweak which put him out of action for three weeks in January and now we’re looking at a further three weeks of light work following scoping and treatment for gastric ulcers. It must have been quite unpleasant for him, but he’s certainly responding to the treatment and a stable full of hay must be a bonus! In the meantime I’m making plans and riding other horses so that we can pick up where we left off soon. See the next blog (out today!) to find out what we were up to at half term (clue: it involves jumps).
