It’s time for another steal of the week!
I’m one of those people that have a tendency to wear not so warm shoes. Which makes me end up in bed every evening with extremely cold feet in the winter. The other day I came across these teddy lined leather jodhpurs from Kramer Sport. For 50,- their definitely a steal! No more cold feet in the winter 😉
Happy friday to you all.
So far today I’ve been to the stable to let Mr. Grumpy out for a little. As the weather here in the Netherlands is pretty sad at the moment he had to wear his raindress as I call it.
As always he had a bit of a roll.. Haha
Woohoo first blog post.
So who is that grumpy horse?
After 3 years riding at a stable on different “stable horses” I decided it was time to buy my own. Looking back I probably would have advised myself to wait a bit so I could learn more about horses before buying one, however my stubborn self decided it was time, so half a year ago Mr. grumpy walked into my life.
Mr grumpy is my sweet 15 year old Zangersheide gelding(x Artos Z) who has a slight tendency to become grumpy if there is something happening that he doesn’t like. He specially hates most other horses as well as rugs. If he didn’t become such a fluffy hairy bear in the winter I would let him stand “naked” all year around.
He is bred as a jumping horse, but we do dressage together as he turns a big cray cray if he has to jump. Unfortunately something happened in his past that made him really scared of jumping, but as I’m not a jumping hero either we fit well together. Even tough we go through life arguing a lot I couldn’t imagine life without him. He makes me laugh everyday.
The last half year has gone by in a whirlwind, and I’ve certainly been on the speed train when it comes to learning about horse handling. As I don’t want to forget everything I’ve learned and our journey together I’ve set up this blog as a online diary. Hopefully we will start our first dressage competition this summer.
