    Hi Everyone, Billy/Nic here.

    Here's my backyard, lovely lawn (how good would it be to have GREEN!?), happy dog and gorgeous (and very Arabian looking!) horse at the gate...

    Thank you so very much Natty I am hopeless with computers!

    Hi Ozeymum I love horse shoes and they must be up!! Sammy is a sweetie and bash, bashes that gate every morning at 8am for his treats and then 3.30pm. At around 5pm he is waiting for dinner and i can't go outside unless i am feeding him...he calls out consistantly otherwise and i feel terrible.

    We have two Arabs, Sammy and Mumbles. Mumbles is aggisted locally in pasture atm and is a real star. Both horses have been very succesful in endurance and are retired now with the occasional pleasure ride.

    Horses and dogs were my passion as a little kid. I spent all my time with them, the weekends were great as i would disapear at 5 am on an all day ride. It would take me nearly half the day to get to 'our place' and then i would unsaddle the horse and let them role in the sand, swim them, let them feed and drink and then head home before dark. Half of the home trip i walked with the horses to give them a break....They were the greatest days!

    The first shot is of part of the front, and where the dogs most often play and run. The deck is where they also get up to mischief, most of the time they are inside.

    The second is our backyard....excuse the bio recycle, the garden closest is what the dogs love to destroy!!

    Next is Sammy wammy saying hello, and then a Ruby zoom as my camera battery is flat after the weekend Billy and our new rescue Cloe spent ages chasing each other and doing zoomies later today in the front, sadly i missed them.

    We have had a lot of recent rain so it is really green. Not so long ago it was a dustbowl and our big dam was moments from drying up for the first time ever.

    We never thought we would see it full (or even half full) again, but it is now overflowing which is amazing. I hope that everyone gets the same rain soon.

    I often wish for a smaller yard that i can keep up with. Acreage is such hard work, there is always something! we dont do anything else really.... honestly it can be exhausting. I have learnt to let some things go, and i truly love a messy garden. I love it when the leaves have fallen and things are relaxed and easy

    Anyway...Morgan! where is Toni Macaronis beautiful and very functional hole?!!

    Sounds like my days back when I was 10 up till about 17! GREAT times
    Here's a pic of my old horse Blazer. Him and Jess (both RIP ) were my teen life I got Blazer when I was 11...he died when I was 27 (twisted bowels after long drought..then lots of rain and grass too green).

    Oh Blazer and Jess are gorgeous Ozeymum You have the most beautiful photo of them together...that is so special

    Those days were great! Free as a bird with animals, the best!.

    I am sorry for Blazer, the same thing happened for me with a very old rescue. It was the worst drought and he picked up so much sand and junk during natural feeding/picking. It just builds up and blocks natural flow....

    Blazer and Jess are so loved, and have had a great life. Happy days

    Here is my yard. It's a complete mess at the moment - very embarrassing! My parents are getting the place subdivided so we are in the process of getting it ready, pulling things to pieces. It used to be alright

    So unfortunately Taya won't have much room when it's all done. But I don't think it will be finished until a couple of years time. By then I will be close to finishing uni and then I can move out
