Ola ola,

This week it was time for Grumpy’s final check up from the vet. For once I wasn’t nervous as he’s been very happy and frisky lately.

We had to do some walking and running tests at first and afterwards the vet felt trough his whole body to see if anything was stuck. Besides two small things his whole body was really good. The vet was happy with the developments and asked me to continue the way I was going. I just need to add some work from the ground. After seeing the vet every single month for the last 12 months I now don’t need to see him for another 6 months. Definitely going to help my bank account!

Which is good when it comes to what else I did last Wednesday. I finally bought a new car! I don’t like to be dependent on other people, so I wanted a car that could pull a horse trailer if I need to transport Grumpy. I must admit that it’s quite a difference from my old small Ford, so I need to get used to it, but I’m very happy. Christmas came early for me this year. Now I can’t wait for the new year and all it has to offer!

Ola ola,

Today I got out of bed with a nervous, but excited feeling. I had been holding off riding all week, because I didn’t want to know the answer if Grumpy hadn’t responded to all the treatments for the last two months.

The first sign I was looking for was if he walked strange after saddling up. He would have a tendency before to walk very stiff for ten meters after saddling up and then be fine. Today he was a bit slow, but not stiff.

Gosh, I need to start using the new halter.

Then when I started longing I was worried he would be slow because of the saddle on his back, but he went on like he would have without it. Which was one of the sign that the vet said was good. I made sure he worked well through his whole body before I decided to get on.

There isn’t too much you can do in 10 minutes, but we focused on Grumpy walking well trough his whole body and not blocking his back and for me to sit correctly in order for him to move properly. As we only focused on walking today, I can’t say how he will be in trot or walk, but so far so good. He is a lot less tense and stiff then prior to the treatment.

So happy Maria today!

Ola ola,

If you live in the Netherlands and have managed to avoid the whole Bucas Recuptex hype, then you literally must be living under a stone.

Now Harry’s Horse have created a saddle pad with the same idea. It is meant to have 3D ceramic inside that provides heat waves that will relax the horses back and works against inflammations.

To be honest I have no idea if it works or not, but seems interesting. Considering Grumpy’s back is bad, such products always catches my attention.

The saddle pad can be bought over at Epplejeck for 44.95 euro.

If you have tried it, please let me know your thoughts about it!

Ola ola,

Fluffy products seem to be everywhere at the moment. I feel like you can find every single product under the moon with fur. Everything from saddle pads, to boots to halters.

Kentucky has now come up with a smart solution for the last one. If you have an old halter in the closet that you want to make a bit prettier, you can buy one of their halter furs that they’ve got for sale.

You can buy them HERE in Black or white for 99 euro.
