Busy weekend

We spent saturday building a footbath and drying pen for the sheep. Last year another sheep brung footrot onto the property and weve been struggling with it ever since. So now we will be able to tackle it full force and get rid of it once and for all.

On Sunday Kate and I fired Jess on the truck and went out the Rough Island. We had arranged to meet with a friend and her son and pony. They did some very nice work in the arena, then we went for a hack around the estuary and forestry. It was the first time Kate has done this off the lead rein, and they had an absolute ball. Jess didnt put a foot wrong and had her ears pricked the whole way around. They even did some leg yielding!
Not great pics as I only had my phone with me

Rugby season is nearly here again so we are busy shipping the boys to practices and games will be starting next week.

Kate and Jess have pony club this weekend. Jade is loving riding and really looking forward to her first show in June.

Thats about it from here - better run, the girls want to ride before Liam has Rugby!
