Diary (October 2011)
Well! with the rather odd changes in weather patterns over the last few weeks, nothing and no-one seems to know what's going on with the seasons... We started September feeling very Autumnal, and ended it in t-shirts! The horse's like wise. George, Floy, Alfie, Pandora, Bobby, Limonero & Bunny have decided not to risk it and are well on their way to having a full winter coat already. Tez, Ico, Borba, Timber, Rosie, Jewel & Firefly are going for the t-shirt option, still sporting a sleek summer coat. The others are hedging their bets!
Oska, our newest recruit has now gone home for the winter - thus easing our tally of horses for a week... we are about to take delivery of a newly weaned Section A foal to give Bunny/Serenity some like-aged company.
The human team
The winter regime is slowly setting in, with more stable management duties taking up the day, and a more restful time for the school horses. I for one am dreading the winter drudgery - lets hope "they" are wrong about another hard one!
Still looking tidy. The latest project is soon to be completed ... a further sand turn-out area complete with two stables/field shelter.
