Okay I am terrible at keeping this updated!

It's a lot of fun exercising horses in the early morning mist as the sun comes up,  must do it again - I miss old times!

Art wise I am still making my way through the waiting list, at the moment I'm reserved all the way back to June!   It's scary to have that much of the year planned already.   Nonetheless,  I will get images up as and when I'm able to - problem with my work often being gifts,  they can't go public for a while!  I've not thought of any original work to produce yet, but I am still thinking.

We're also looking (3 years on..) to doing a huge overhaul of the website.  It's very old at the moment and not responsive for mobile platforms which are now such popular methods of browsing the net.  Not overly sure what we're going to go for next, however my lovely OH has some fun ideas up his sleeve to make it a very useful site.  So I will update on this when we eventually start the planning, however at the moment we have much bigger things to be doing.   Plus, being the veterinary tech student means studies come before new projects.

I also aim to produce some more tutorials this year for Liam, founder of the ECN and Equestrian Social Media Awards.  I began the tutorial series for the ECN in 2013, and think after a bit of brain storming, I can come up with some unique ideas.  I will update more on this too when I know more. ;)  Although if anyone has any thoughts on types of tutorials that are generally neglected (in equine terms) share your thoughts!

Hope everyone had a super Christmas, New Year etc.  I'm looking forward to the spring as so far the flooded fields are starting to become a saddening sight.   More sun, less rain, and I might finally get some XC jumps in the field to play with.    

As always, let me know your news :D
