Hi everyone... (says a sheepish Cassie who hasn't been here since October
)
My Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

10885282_10153427301899027_5410394085237490022_n.jpg

boy have I missed you guys! it's just been so crazy busy I haven't had a chance to get on here...

All is really well here. we have been enjoying a beautiful hot but still wet summer so everything is beautiful and green and not many fires (not here anyway)

Horse update:
Smartie (stock horse) is doing really well considering he is 26 this year, he got stress founder last winter which took me ages to get his weight back again but with this grass he's doing so well and I have even been out riding him!!

Penny (mini horse) is doing well as always fat and loving being wild haha, I keep thinking I should sell her so someone can do something more with her, but then I think of how she is Smartie's companion and I rethink it lol

Suzie (mini pony): my beautiful darling mare, who gave me the most stunning little colt August last year.... we weaned Pippin last weekend, so she is out in the big paddock for a little while loving life with Penny and Smartie just chilling and letting relax and enjoy being a pony for a while before I bring her in to prep for showing again. love my sweet girl so much. she really is the best girl

Finn (mini pony): my little bug is mega fat oops! but loving life, he is looking fantastic this season and my Dad absolutely adores him!! he even brought him in our house lol.

at the moment he is weaning his little bro Pippin and they LOVE playing together! Pippin is helping him lose weight and is doing quite good at it haha!

hoping to get him out to a few shows this season also... theres definitely two local ones I'm aiming to get too so hopefully they do well at both.

Pippin (6 month old colt) My beautiful little mushroom prince, I love this dude so much! he is just stunning and I love him more and more the older he gets, those who have Facebook have been bombarded with Pip pics hehe soz about that.
I got Pippin colour tested and he is Silver black (excitement for me) so I have sent off his registration papers this week, his show name is "Classic K Silver Legacy" so I am really excited to get him out to some shows... again hoping to take him to the two local ones that Finn will go to... as long as my friends can take me
I found a mega cute little browband for him which he wore for the first time tonight <3

we have had a little trouble with his feet, just his frogs growing funny so my amazing farrier has been trimming him every month to get his hooves looking better and I have been cleaning out and spraying with purple spray every day and he's looking great.

finally starting to lose that baby fluff.... finally haha! hugging him at night helps he looks so cute in his rugs.

ok enough of me blabbing, no post is a post without piccies right?? sooo here are my ponies, a bit of a timeline for Pip as you haven't seen pics of him since he was 2 months old naughty Cassie...

WE'RE BACK!!! after a very successful day!

Pippin went in his foal class and got 1st! the champion class was very difficult... he deserved reserve but didn't get it... was such a good boy for me!

Finley got first in his gelding class then CHAMPION gelding woohoo!! he is fat and lazy but such a good boy he really looks well and has matured amazingly this year!

both boys then went in breeders group and came first.

they are both exhausted now poor bubba some picks from today for you all <3

Hey my friends,

I have been very slack and not updating again.

Pippin went to his second show on the weekend and got Champion miniature pony wooohh!!!!
No update is an update without pictures right... so here's my little champion

hard to believe he will be a year old in a few days! he was such a cute bubba!10339544_10153065960324027_4612473389453584510_n.jpg

I need to also ask you girls to pray for Pippin's big brother Finnley, my first foal and the favourite of my family as a foal Finn got really bad colic and we almost lost him, since then he has had a very delicate digestion system and any little tummy upset would result in colic most times I was able to treat him myself but this saturday he got colic bad and he has been in the vets since then. I had to make the decision to not do the surgery on him on Monday and now we are trying to give him enough time to push things through and get better.
He is in the best place possible and under the best care.

He still has good gut movements, good heart rate and gum colour, still bright and happy and his tummy bloating has gone down, he just isn't passing anything so I would like to ask dear friends that you would join me and my family in praying for my precious little dude. We're really hoping he will come through this. Diane, Anna, Renee and some of our other Aunties know how much this little man means to me.

This was him saturday night when he went into the vets very bloated and miserable

this was him yesterday when I visited him and took him for a nice long walk a brush and a nibble of grass you can see how bright and happy he is, he just isn't passing anything. Finn2807.JPG

Please pray for my little buggy bear, he means so much to us all
