Recent antics and a new way of life...

Posted on


Firstly apologies for being so quiet lately; you may or may not have heard that I've not been too well, and have actually been in hospital for most of June and some of July!
Following a fall from a horse I was taken into hospital and during my stay I developed some very nasty blood clots which luckily I survived, however it has left me unable to ride. Not what I was hoping for!
In true Sharon style I didn't dwell on the fact that I could no longer ride, instead I put my own mantra into practice and found my Positive Mental Attitude, so vital in these circumstances and said, ok, so, what CAN I do? I can go back to breeding and showing my welsh mountain ponies, that's what I CAN do!
So from my hospital bed I contacted a few people who in turn put me in touch with various people, and the results from this was 2 fabulous ponies, a 3 yr old chestnut Filly called Lovins Valkyrie, and a lovely broodmare called Boothsdale Dawnus who is actually in foal for next year.
After a week of being home, Valkyrie was delivered, wow, what a lovely pony! Dawnus is currently with her breeder in North Wales, and is expected home on the 8th August.

Obviously before this happened I had just taken on a second horse, Porridge, who was to be retrained for dressage along side my beloved Monty, and with a very heavy heart, had to say goodbye to both, these two horses would have been easy to have kept on and just had as pets as I loved them both to pieces, however, they are both extremely talanted horses and need to be out doing what they love - working.
Monty has been extremely lucky and has found a new mum called Amber who loves him as much as I did, and has been out showjumpingMonty and Amber already, such a nice end for him, porridge has also a new mum and she is currently being enjoyed by her.
Thankfully I am almost recovered from my antics, and am fully back to work, which I have to admit was a welcome return, I miss my clients!
