Playtime with Brennan

After sustaining a patella ligament sprain last week, I had to scratch Brennan from the Carterton Spring Carnival in the weekend. To say I am depressed about this is an understatement but, it was to be his very first outing and I really needed to be at 100% for him as much as for me and for Karen who was to handle him for me. Oh well, there will be other shows - just not many. It looks like Manawatu Breeders will introduce Connemara classes to their show this December and a friend has forwarded some suggestions to them. so now we just have to see if it can all be finalised in time and, if so, Brennan will be there with bells on!! Brennan and I have even been offered beds for the night before and our very own professional handler - Watch out everyone! Haha!

Hooty is progressing well in her pregnancy and looks on track to foal pretty much on due date. I moved her into the foaling paddock today and Maude is a couple of paddocks over. Brennan was very excited when he saw me moving mares around. Poor boy. I take him to SYENZ tomorrow for his AI training - My feelings about this go from excitement to trepidation. It's a big and fairly expensive investment in his future though and I am sure it will be all good.

Brennan has been bored since I hurt myself and consequently is feeling very playful. I was out with Jet and my camera in the weekend and he and Jet had a game of 'Catch me if you can' alternating between chasing and being chased. They went around and around and around the old pine tree in Brennan's paddock so I took some photos ...
