The new man in my life.

I have been missing from this blog for over two months now, but I have a very good excuse...

I bought a horse!!!

His name is Maverick - and he is just delightful! He is a six year old Australian Quarter Horse with a personality that is the sweetest. I have been spending almost all of my spare time with him - riding him, training him, brushing him, cleaning his feet and washing his coat.

This photo below is from the day he arrived. It was absolutely bucketing rain and it was the first time he had ever been in a horse float. However, within ten minutes of arriving he allowed me to halter him and lead him around. An absolutely perfect horse.

We are fast becoming good mates! I have never been a morning person but, now I have him, I jump out of bed and am in the paddock with him as the sun is rising. So wonderful for the soul :-)

He has such a cheeky personality too. He loves to give kisses...

And pull faces at the other horses...

Can't imagine a better day, then being in the paddock with him.

But I have also been sewing - I've made a few new things that I need to take photos of, and some up coming projects to share with you all!

  1. Welcome back! He is a gorgeous horse. I've always wanted a horse but they do scare me a little. Corey used to have the evilest horse that I think put me off a little.

  2. I'm glad you're posting again! He's an absolutely beautiful horse and you look adorable together.

  3. Ahhh, I've missed your posts! This is definitely a good reason. I just got done telling my Hubs that you've totally got the life I want- spinning your own yarn, raising poultry, having a garden, and now a horse? I may have to Single White Female you. :-)

  4. He is gorgeous. Horses are indeed very good for the soul.

  5. Maverick is very handsome. You know that the most amazing adventure starts here, right? I shared 13 years of my life with a horse I can can tell that there will be none like him.

  6. What a handsome chap!
    (though I kind of want to nickname you Goose and get the Top Gun theme happening) ;)

  7. Just came across your blog and I must say Maverick is lovely, I have a Chestnut Welsh Section D who I blog about he is the love of my life as I am sure Maverick will be yours.
