Fun stuff for Friday!

So much going on this week that its not till today that I've been able to find space on the blog for Dilly's updated footage - a really nice improvement in her, in a little over 2 weeks - she is a motivated girl despite being 18 yrs old :-)

Dilly from Nic Barker on Vimeo.

There is also news on Kingsley, who went home at the weekend, plus lots of photos of his new home on Wiola's blog:  - which includes footage of the boy himself with funky music :-)
Wiola and Felix
You can also read her take on her first days' hunting in England, which she had on Felix on Saturday (again with pics!):  - she was kind enough to say Felix was "the best horse I have ever taken over some serious terrain" :-)

Pauline on Angel
And more news on real "old boys" - Bailey W is going great guns - this is what Lainey has put up on Facebook:
"went for a 3 hour hack today!!!!!!!!! endurance is not for Bailey fresh as a daisy"

"Best 15 minute schooling session my Bailey boy, he tried his heart out for me, we are both sooooooo rusty! fantastic canter off the corner and across the diagonal, i really need to learn to sit his canter, rock on the 26th first dressage comp in 2 years....can't wait"

and also on Facebook, Lucie has put some lovely photos of her and Solomon out and about on her album:

"I love my pony ♥ 2 and a half hours out in the sun with lots of galloping. Go Soli, never thought he'd be out doing that again!!"

When I emailed to ask whether she minded me putting the comment up here, she emailed me back :-)

"Soli is doing fantastically, he has exceeded all my expectations and
is loving life again :) he is a different horse to be around, so much
more relaxed and seemingly content with life at the mo :) he is easier
to handle and so forward to ride- I don't think the livery I went out
with the other day was expecting to go the speed we did ;) !!"

Brilliant!  Happy Friday, everyone :-)
