So I went to go visit my aunt/Chahara’s new foal today (the one born the night before last!), and I took my spunky new camera with the hope of taking lots of delightful photos! However. EPIC FAIL. Literally, the second I turned the camera on, the [2nd] set of batteries went all red in the face and angry, and died after only a handful of photos ;’( Gutted!! A tiny tiiiiiiiiny part of my brain did actually think ‘oohh, bring some more batteries’..but obviously the rascal side of my brain decided to overrule the first thought. HURRUMPH. I’m going back this weekend to get more though. Anyway, here’s what I did get! (Apologies for the quality – I haven’t found the right setting for indoor/dull-light photos, that need a fast shutter speed :s)
My aunt has freaking huge fields!!
Proud/tired mumma!! Apparently it was quite a long birth :s
The foal is the SWEETEST thing ever! He’s so so friendly – most day old foals are pretty timid and scared of humans, but this guy doesn’t give a crap! He’s so sweet 🙂 But, there’s a downside – you might have noticed his hind legs in the pics? Well, sometimes when foals are born, they have slightly wibbly wonky legs, which should straighten up pretty quick. His don’t seem to be though…which is bad. If they don’t, he will probably have to be put down; after all, it’s a deformity, and it’ll ruin his growth (ie his back is being twisted etc), so it’d be the only option. My aunt is gutted 😦 finger’s crossed he sorts himself out over the next week!!
I was up extra early today – lots to do! Cos I’d gotten up earlier, I totally wasn’t in the least hungry, so I just had a square of chocolate and 2 tsp wheatgerm to Break My Fast, as I couldn’t face anything else pre-workout :s Anyways, I did some DVDs, then had an EGM:
I missed thee! It was B. E. A. Utiful, as Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty would say (loveeee that film!!).
Theeeen, I shot off to my aunts, saw the foal, had a tour of her vegetable patch, and stared in awe somewhat at her dogs; three generations – gran is a Boxer, daughter and grandchild are Boxer crosses, so they’re not massive. But after being round Poppy for so long, they looked HUGGGEE!! Crazy.
When I got home, I made a super quick packed lunch, then set out with a mission in mind – Find A Job! Basically, I went into town, and a few places along the way, and asked if anyone had any part time work. I’ve left my details at quite a few places, and I have an interview on Monday….wish me luck!!
It turns out I was actually home by lunch, so I got to enjoy my sheer yumminess at a table 🙂
A curry hummus and beetroot/salad sandwich:
A pear, and cherries:
Amazing! The hummus and the beets went SO well together – I was rather taken aback by the delight :p
For dessert, I had some cereal 🙂
Straight after lunch, I got Chika out and took her for a hack. WHY do I keep riding straight after a big meal??? Will I ever learn?? Apparently not ANYWAY – It was SO HAWT! Poor old Chika was very lethargic; it’s hard being a tubster horse in the heat 😛
When I was done with her, I mucked her and Tig out, and went out on a random 1mile run. 9 minutes of running, and I was literally dripping with sweat 😛 heeeeaaattt wwaaavvveee!! Sheesh.
THEN, I took Poppy out for an hours’ walk – she was bursting to get out 😛 while I was walking down the driveway, I took some horsie photos 🙂
They love each other 🙂
Any excuse right? 😛
I was quite peckish when I got back, so I decided it was the perfect opportunity for a bit of cereal love…not just any cereal though. THIS cereal:
Have you had it before? It was SUPER delicious!! And the ingredients list was delightful 🙂 I had it with some Crunchy Bran and yogurt:
Hurrah 😀 I also had a tiny tiny apple – remember folks, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Never forget.
Dinner was another old favourite: tempeh, peanut butter mess, durum wheat, veggies. Or, to put it more nicely:
Softly baked tempeh fillets, with an oriental spiced peanut glaze, on a bed of lightly seasoned, carob dusted durum wheat, and accompanied by garlic and cinnamon baked fresh winter vegetables.
Sounds a bit better right!? Here’s the mess anyway:
Hurrah again!! Best meal ever 😀
Can you guess what’s coming now? Maybe something that sounds like Doppy Palk, and Hessert…oh, and Dig Dother 😛
Answers on a postcard people 🙂

What’s your all time favourite baby animal? Kittens win, hands down for me 😀
