Naughty Phoebe and the sheep, and Mr Hunky


Well yesterday we were doing so well, with walking off the lead, and recall, that I let her onto the yard with her lead off. Big Mistake. There was just too much smells and stimulant and I couldnt get her to listen at all. She buggered off twice.

On the way to take hay out to the boys she got in with the sheep and I could not get her to come back for love nor money. She was fascinated and every time I got near her she would bounce away. Took Lucy to help me to catch her.

So she will have to be on lead on the yard, until her recall and listening skills improve. I was possibly expecting to much of her, as I have only had her for 6 days, and her discipline isnt great. Training, training, training!

I have joined a Springer forum to get tips.

We walked with Rizzo my friends horse, as I want her to get used to riding on the farm with me, she isn’t bothered by the horses at all, and doesn’t get excited around them, so all good.

Mr Hunky got given a permanent contract at work yesterday, its so nice for him to have the job security! He is so chuffed and I am really proud of him. 🙂

About silvermaneuk

Known as Nicky Turner-Sterling at school, and married and became Field. Got divorced, now Turner-Sterling again. Married to Kristopher and kept my maiden name. Nicknames are Betty, Knickers or Nicky. I am a mom to 3 great kids. I have been diagnosed with CFS/ME & Fbromyalgia and I also have neurological problems. I am registered disabled. So I have good days and bad days. Sometimes really bad days, where I cant get out of bed. But I try not to let it hold me back, I have to work with my limitations, but after a long period of being bedridden I finally got back to working albeit part time. I seem to be constantly on a diet lol. I love photography, I love my computers, and often create digital art on it. I love to read, and I love to listen to music, passionate about photography. I love to travel and look at beautiful places.I love to mooch around shops (especially the £1 shop lol) and stuff. I love to bake and cook. Love my animals, have 4 small dogs,4 cats and 1, 8 year old pony. Spirit is my best friend, I trained him, so I could ride him for physio therapy, and trained him so I could ride with as low impact as possible. Riding helps my pelvis and hips. When I dont ride it affects my gait, and I can hardly walk, so it is an excellent form of physio therapy for me. It can also make me flare badly, so I have to get the balance right. He's bitless, barefoot and treeless, he really looks after me, and makes it possible for me to have my dream, and he gave me hope again. If my physio hadn't encouraged to to try horse riding for therapy, I probably would still be bedridden. A disabled rider can do it, with the right tools! and pace pace pace! I can talk the hind leg of a donkey and snore for England. I get bored very quickly, which means I tend to flit from one thing to another, or do more than one thing at once lol.
