She is of course, looking lovely and groomed and very fetching in her new bandages and her best travel rug (all matching) whereas I look like a gypsy. I am happy to report that she loaded onto the lorry very easily (no arguments) and unloaded like a pro at the other end - no running down the ramp and diving into the nearest field for Phoebe - Oh no - she has lovely manners.
I have broken three fingernails - my hair is full of hay and straw and I have a big black grease mark right across my left boob !!!! Not a good look!!!
The nice lorry man (in his huge 6 Horse HGV) was following me to Sunbury and we managed to hold up all the traffic in Weybridge, then Walton and finally at Sunbury roundabout - so if you got stuck behind us this morning I do apologise!!!
Moving horses and all their paraphernalia is - I have to say - probably man's work - but whenever I've moved mine it has always been down to me and me alone!!!! (well, apart from the lorry driver of course). It involves moving heavy stuff (wheelbarrows - bales of shavings - rug racks) it usually involves power tools (putting rug racks up at new home) and a whole load of dirt and cobwebs.
To say I have a lot of male friends - they are all a bit thin on the ground today and slightly conspicuous by their absence!!! Ho Hum xx
