Gilfach Farm Livery and Holiday Cottage

Diary - Middle of October 2012

Welsh Autumn

Autumn is well and truly upon us, with plentiful rain, wind, mud, and fortunately periods of beautiful sunshine.

The Horses

Tesoro has had his first shock wave treatment, and despite losing his gorgeous athletic outline and getting a bit on the tubby side, is looking good.

Jewel continues to take on the role of my "main" horse, and most of the time is a complete joy to work with. Jewel is having to go outside of her comfort zone with the long rides out that I occasionally do - which invariably involves farm traffic, huge muddy lakes (puddles) to cross, and cows!

Borba, my lovely old friend, reduced me to tears yesterday by offering the most fabulous work the two of us have ever achieved together! I am putting it down to the "new" me - having started taking Alexander Technique lessons. Borba of course already new how to do all of this, just needed me to up my game... Absolutely amazing!

All of our others, and the liveried horses are tolerating the winter regime with stoicism - roll on the Summer!!

The Cottage and Log Cabin

We have had a very successful year of self-catering booking for the Cottage and Log Cabin this year, with the season slowly winding down, look out for last minute special offers on our web site.

We hope to welcome you to Gilfach soon.
