Rise and Shine Murphy

Horse: Murphy - Diamond Discovery - January 6th, 2010

Murphy has been up and out early every morning this week, this morning he was almost out at work in the dark. He thinks this is a fab start to the day (but was not so impressed this morning when he realised that it meant having his breakfast late).

He is working well and the long Winter nights mean that our little stallion has calmed down dramatically and is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is much straighter now in both walk and trot than he was and his canter is coming along brilliantly.

He had a small mishap on Sunday when he tripped over and ended up with a bust lip but being the little trooper he is he was straight back up. The same can’t quite be said for Matthew who promptly went straight over his ears (unsurprisingly) and heard his leg (he thinks he might have been stood on), his shoulder (he fell off onto the fence) and his finger (no idea how that one happened) and was walking like John Wayne for a good 24 hrs – not good.

Lets see if he can continue with his early starts.
