it never rains...it blinking chucks it down for me :(

Well im knackered! thats all i can say really, Jak started to pick up, he has now started to be a bit unsteady again, mainly on one back leg, but he is on metacam now and hopefully will be a bit happier. Holly decided it was her turn to be ill! she has ulcerated colitis! she haid a full 24 hours D&V and ended up containing a great deal of blood from her bowel, she was getting dehydrated, to the point i had to syringe Rehydration fluid into her, and the following day she was admitted onto a drip as it wasnt enough. Holly is 2 months younger than Jak, so also 13, knocking on 14, and has a touch of arthritis in her legs but mainly in her front feet, so is a bit slower on lead walks than him. She prefers off lead ambles, but can still do a runner after the elusive pheasant or rabbit :) SO if anyone has any nice poweful healing thoughts for my lovely oldies, please spare us a few x

back to the others, meg and zig are working well at training, we are doing alot at the barn, and a few bits out with Toni, and harry is coming along well too, learning how to handle basic courses now, so he is really coming along, its nice to have someone so nice show him what to do and when, thanks Toni x

Chase is woking on general bits n pieces, he is very gangly still and reminds me of a teenage boy! But he is keen and happy doing everything we ask of him so far :)
Dai & Terra, both are working nicely on jumping, terra is even doing some full height work, and her teeny brain is coping!! yay! although the rate she is going she will be competing in veterans!!haha! Dai is still an onward challenge, her focus is never fully there, she is FAR better in a group now than she was, although is noisy while she is waiting! she is happy playing or using food rewards, and her weaves are coming along well, she is starting to speed up now, so we will start on independance & entries soon!! I will try and get some videoing done this week at training :)
