Hi, it's Jemima here, reporting on my two weeks work experience with Sarah - seriously I haven't squished her, in fact she is doing the typing. I came because I wanted to learn techniques for calming and restraining horses undergoing veterinary treatment and I thought I would benefit from the experience of thinking like a horse.
|This is what a healthy horse's stomach looks like. No signs of ulceration. This shows the squamous and non-squamous sections of the stomach, with a pool of acid at the bottom.|
|And a healthy pylorus section: the exit of the stomach|
|Sarah: This is what the Verderers' Court looks like in session.|
After that we went to the a feed and tack shop to collect barley rings and pony nuts which she will be using with Magic tomorrow. We met a really cool statue wearing sunglasses. Perhaps he had uveitis! We also went to the garage to pick up ginger nuts for Henrietta!
We went the scenic route back to Fritham...
Back up at the farm, Henry was sound! So everybody was really happy. We poo-picked and then we took Henrietta and Jack out for a walk in the Forest. I was in charge of Jack but we didn't get lost or bitten by a snake.
"It has been a real pleasure to have Jemima working with me. She has a deep and genuine interest in horses and some real experience behind her from having her own at home and competing regularly. Rather like Zoe and Zelda, the ponies, there is no 'no' in her and she has been a real help, as well as being reliable and safe around the place. Considering that she is just 13, she's amazing."
