Cowart's Common Room
Coffee time!

Hello everyone... er.... anyone? I thought I was a day late and a dollar short, but it seems everyone else is too.

The coffee is instant, but fair trade and there are biscuits in the tin.. homemade coconut and oat chewy things... yummy... but no cake today.

I've been untangling a piece of prickly blackthorn from the tail of my littlest pony. Goodness knows how he got in such a tangle, but every time he took a step it spiked him in a very sensitive place. He's the one I got after answering a plea in County Living by the RSPCA who had rescued 53 ponies in South Wales. He had been quite scared by his early upbringing, but he's a total sweetheart now. He let me unpick the tree from his tail and I gave him a bit of a haircut while I was back there.

One thing led to another so I tacked up one of the mares (not the one in season, silly tart) and had a (very) short ride. Now I'm in for a late coffee - what are you all up to today?

Re:
Jaynebeth's Avatar Homemade chewy things are ok by me.

I'm at work - ploughing my way through a ridiculous amount of paperwork, updating accounts and reading contracts.

Good news though - the vat man's sent a refund so I'm off to the bank. 2.17 won't keep the office in biscuits!

Just in for a quick cup while my fairy footprints dry!

Your wee pony sounds a darling PM what "flavour" is he?

Re:
Preseli Mags's Avatar Well a refund is better than a bill! Laughing Not quite a match for last Friday's Euromillions jackpot though.

Here's a picture of the pony I was untangling (taken in the snow in January) he is a little darling too; a little Welsh Section A gelding called Bullseye (after the Toy Story character and because he has one blue eye):

Re:
Dancing Dog's Avatar I'm quite envious, what a lovely way to spend a Monday morning. I'm now at work shuffling papers. Anything that's coconut and chewy gets my vote, thanks.

Sweet little pony, how lucky his is to have found his "forever" home with you.Very Happy

Re:
Salle de Bain's Avatar Well done you on untangling at the 'dangerous end' as I call it here! I've just received 2 cracked ribs...funnily enough from the not so dangerous end...just a playful foal...not her fault at all! Very painful never the less...but it does get me out of mucking out and weeding for a few days...every cloud etc. etc. Rolling Eyes

How wonderful that you rescued that gorgeous beast....I wonder if the other 52 found new homes too? I hope so!

Re:
Tiggywinkle's Avatar What a sweet little pony. Rescue horses and other animals always seem to respond to love so well. I'd love him for Muffin.

Re:
Wonderful little critter, PM. And you're so kind with him.

But I'm puzzled. Around here, "homemade coconut and oat chewy things" are called macaroons. Headmistress will eat yours, but not mine.

Hmmm. . . Exclamation Exclamation

Bear is becoming VERY suspicious. Time for the deerstalker hat, and an investigation. Cool
