Keeping it up,..

Av L Viktoria M Sandberg - 12 oktober 2013 16:56

All including Nova enjoyed a morning turnout. Her wound is slowly recovering, she is very sore as you can understand but still very brave and cooperative. One or two bandages/ day is necessary. 
Spain is not so much about glamour, pretty much everything practical is a problem here. Today I had to call the deliverer of forrage because several 500kg packets were spoiled. Paid for forrage, paid for delivery, paid neighbour for storing it. I told him he needs to pick up the spoiled hay as it is inconveniently taking up storage space. He told me he only removes unopened packages, and I asked him how I could possibly know that the forrage is spoiled if I don't open it? Spain would be such a nice place to live if only people liked to help each other out a little, take responsability for their job and cooperate. 
Last week at the Spanish Championships I engaged a discussion at a dinnerparty with a known Grand Prix rider, we were talking about conservative Spain and the big handicap from having been under a dictatorship for many years. The rider claimed that sometimes it is good to be a dictator for your horse and that Franco had not been all bad for Spain.
Oh my god. End of discussion.

But it is not all doom and gloom, Halagador is right now lodging at stables Los Arcos and we are enjoying our training here. Very convenient as our finca is just across on the other side and today we could hear Donoso calling from his paddock, H recognized him answered, cute. Halagador is in total harmony, shows his super manners and fits in very well with the beautiful typical spanish architecture :)

Usch hur såret ser ut, vad behandlas det med? Är lite nyfiken hur man får sådana sår att läka. 😃
Halagador är en alldeles magnifik o underbar hingst. Vilket trevligt psyke 👍😃❤️

Det tvättas med tvål och vatten, sedan applicerar jag kol och bomullsbandage över det. Jag använder även en salva som heter Plushealing och kol över det och låter såret luftas. Halagador har aldrig varit så fin i både kropp och psyke som han är nu, trivs verkligen med sin tillvaro, hade jag haft tid så hade jag absolut tagit honom till Stömsholm i år så han hade fått visa hur fin han är! Tack.

Jag letade bland unghästarna om det skulle finnas någon efter Halagador eller Donoso men icke :(
Hade ju varit ännu häftigare att få se någon av grabbarna live förstås :)

So have we said goodbye to Kiko our beautiful baby. Nature has had its course and wisely decides what is to be and what is not. And we have to accept and let go. Kiko was born too early, he was premature and weak and was not able to eat himself. I go...
