My first polework session in the arena

Imagine my surprise today when She led me into the arena - all by myself - for the first time.  It was full of strange objects, but I was very brave.   Bizarrely, She expected me to walk over poles on the ground.  In spite of the novelty of it all, I obligingly did what She wanted and received a number of treats to keep me motivated, and to distract me from the traffic noises.  If this is what Posy has been doing in the arena all this time, then it is pretty easy and I have mastered it already!

Hanuman's Birthday

Hanuman is five years old today.  He was presented with a new food bowl to replace the old one which had mysteriously developed a hole in it.  The finger of suspicion had been pointed at me, but there is no way that my playful gnawings could have made such a hole.

He had a 'lesson' this morning which is when someone comes to help and encourages him to make wobbly shapes in the arena.  They say he is not fully grown up since his back end is still higher than the front and he has yet to sprout any withers.  He also has a lot of trouble co-ordinating his legs.

Afterwards he got carrots and treats as it was his birthday.
