I really wasn't thinking clearly after I read the chocolate word....It's summer over here so it was a little bit squishy. But it all tastes good. Aussie customs had opened the parcel as well, our quarantine laws are so strict. They sent me a pamplet about what can't be sent from over seas, man it's a long list. Lucky for me it was all safe.
Thankyou Issa for this lovely idea, and hope your parcel gets there soon. And thankyou again Rhonda, can't wait to get home and have some more.

They were only 40cm but I have to start somewhere and the pony I used likes to run out of jumps so were starting small together. Done bigger jumps on a bigger horse but rather the smaller horses and Im gaining so much confidence on her. (Broke my leg 2 years ago jumping) Did you own a horse?
Loki's mum wrote:No I've never been lucky enough to have my own horse.The one I rode in my jumping lessens was a beautiful palamino coloured mare called Clover. She was gorgeous but not a natural jumper. She also used to like to run out or stop abruptly. It used to take every ounce of concentration to keep enough leg on to stop her refusing and tight enough control to keep her in a straight line at the jump and then think of my position and letting my hands go with her but not my entire body and remember the course and .....and........and.......
Prior to that I'd ridden a pony that you could vaguely aim at a fence and he would just gently canter up to it and jump it. On that pony you could convince yourself you were good but Clover was a shock to the system.
