Malambo continued...

Ally is cracking on with Malambo's rehab, the physio report was pretty stark reading but not really a surprise as his normal pudgy Criollo withers seem to have morphed into a sharks fin that would put Jaws to shame.  Next visit is in four weeks time and lots of stretching work in the meanwhile should hopefully see him start to build up some top line.

Another toasty warm day exploring the harbour and shops, oh and possibly the gin in Mahon.  Any chance the real live horses will be this easy to photograph later in the week?

Malambo update

As I was heading off for the sun Malambo was also leaving the Scottish Borders and heading south.  He is now with the very lovely Ally so he will recognise some friendly roan faces and of course his dam, Bridget!  He has had a busy few days, vaccinations and teeth done, bath and tidy up and then out in the field to become best mates with Chamfron Campeador and of course Merlin.

Arrived in Ciutadella on Tuesday to a very pleasant thirty or so degrees and am just getting my bearings ready for the Saint Joan festival next weekend.  Compulsory zoo visit today, Mark used to joke he never needed kids as I liked Christmas, Zoos and more often than not needed a hand to do up my zip!

Grass Sickness Show

This time last week I was driving home from a good day judging at the Scottish Grass Sickness show which was followed by a visit to see Rebecca with Chamfron By Dand and Chamfron Firefly.  I managed to avoid the showers all day and my classes were a pleasure to judge.

Fox Cubs

I have worked out why I am getting less fox photos on the trail camera at night, the hedgehog sneaks in and snaffles all the tasty snacks while presumably being too slow or small to trigger the camera.  Last night he was so full of chicken he struggled to roll up!  Today made up for it when I stumbled on the fox cub's nap time while I was out walking the whippet.
