I should be feeling happy but I am not.
to start at the beginning on Sunday we had our Welsh Pony Youngstock Show, it started to rain as I left home and got heavier and heavier as I got nearer to the venue in the Adelaide Hills. I had taken a jacket but was in light pants and shirt as it was quite warm when I left home.
We did very well with our ponies, my special cream filly was the best foal futurity exhibit and went on to be supreme B in both the rings, meanwhile it got colder and colder and wetter and wetter. The Section C Cob filly won and was Supreme C in one ring and went on to be Supreme Pony in ring 1 and our Welsh Mountain colt became the Supreme in ring 2 with the filly beating him for Supreme of Show.
I was so cold I didnt wait until the end of the show as I was shivering and being cold is not good for me and headed for home, the temperature in my car as I left at 12.30 said 12degrees C and I didnt warm up much on the long drive home, changed and fell into bed!
Was so pleased for the girls when they rang to tell me, they worked hard in trying conditions and to top it off my other daughter and granddaughter took out the Cob Section D Championships in both rings.
So yesterday I felt flattened and didnt do a lot.
I had a blood test early this morning and as I left home it was 9 degrees and there was lots of fog.
Photos taken as I was driving in.
Home safely to be greeted by the news that one of my ponies was in a very bad way from hitting her head on the floor, she had gone up and over onto the concrete.
Long story short we had to wait ages for the vet to come and put her down.
No ones fault, just one of those awful accidents that happen when you have animals.
We all feel rather depressed about it and pretty upset.
I wasnt going to write up my blog but as I havent blogged for a while thought perhaps an update might be necessary.
