"We have maintained a silence closely resembling stupidity" - Neil Roberts

Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

Happy Birthday Flynn:

Flynn officially turns 30 today.

It was love at first sight years ago when we met. Flynn was given to me by our blacksmith Steve Nolan. He was pretty naughty alright, and some interesting behavioural problems, but he's always been a very kind horse. His behaviour problems were caused by fears mostly, and overcome by patience and kindness mostly.

Flynn loves children, always has. He was four years old when we got him, so was Lily. It was love at first sight. He's pretty much retired now, but he still likes to play with the little kids, they sit on him while he wanders around eating, he's a real asset to the community, providing pet therapy to lots of local kids and making them happy. Our community garden provides pet therapy as a sort of extension of Riding for the Disabled, only you don't have to be "disabled" as such, Pet Therapy builds confidence, compassion, empathy, and all sorts of positive virtues. It teaches kids about trust, relationships, patience, and all sorts of other things.
Happy Birthday to Brutus and Paddy too, and all the other horses whose birthday it is today :)
