Chamfron Bombero - polo update

Dearest Alf has had a busy PC and HPA season playing at Black Bears, Cirencester, Guards and culminating in a hectic PC Championships at Cowdray in filthy weather.  He is an absolute legend, keeping a cool head at all times and is much loved by all that know him. Also at the pony club championships was Chamfron Kahlua (aka Pookie) who was in the winning Gannon team.

The Wedlet

Flying visit to Felixstowe for Dave and Charlotte's Wedlet (billed as the shortest and most casual wedding of the season).  You know you've got it just right when none of the children cry but a substantial number of the adults do!

Spotted on my travels (2)

It's been all about the butterflies this week, hundreds of them!  Highest numbers were definitely the Painted Ladies which have arrived in the UK en masse this summer.  They are migrating from Africa to the Arctic Circle, a trip of 7500 miles, and roughly every ten years we get a bumper crop of them.  I also smiled at nature taking on the fence and winning!

Soggy Sheep

Stewarding the Shetland sheep at the Border Union show today, fair to say it was a little bit damp...

Chamfron Zamba 07.07.2015 - 26.07.2019

Not been the best of months in the Chamfron camp.  Poor Zamba picked up a leg injury and caused catastrophic damage to her tendon, sadly it was an utterly bleak prognosis and the decision was made to put her down this morning. 

Absolutely adored to the very end.
