Murphy discovers mirrors!

Horse: Murphy - Diamond Discovery - November 25th, 2009

The smallest of our 2 stallions Murphy has been progressing well and so on Sunday went out for his first trip in the brand new wagon and he loved it! Despite the torrential rain battering down above his head he travelled well and was surprisingly easy to load and unload.

After the short journey we arrived at the neighbours stables and took Murphy into their school (aka our show) – thank you very much for the loan. He was a little flighty (but it was cold and wet) but seemed to find his feet well.

This was however, Murphy’s first introduction to mirrors (and these were BIG mirrors) he spent alot of time up that end of the school prancing about, we’re not sure wheter he was thinking ‘my what a handsome chap’ or ‘I’m going to kill that other horse’ but it made interesting watching!


He finally settled down and tackled some trotting poles sucessfully managing them carefully and accurately – what a star! The next thing to concentrate on is travelling in a straight line which seems difficult for Murphy but we’ll get there.

The next trip out is going to be the beach so watch out for Sand Castle Building!
