No stopping her!

Another very successful outing for the 4yo Chamfron Bellini - Natalie says "Love this mare.  Qualified for Great Midlands horse show and sunshine tour today.  69.75% in first test and 76.73% in second."  Couldn't of asked for a better home for this very smart filly.

Garden Wildlife Camera

Getting some good shots of the now brilliantly named (can't take any credit for it) Sam Fox, along with the jay, the squirrel and occasionally me (I have spared you the dressing gown and Ugg combo when I am putting out Sam snacks!)

The hares here are incredible, we've laughed and watched them come up the garden path or hop over the patio.  This one was completely unbothered when I came back from the stables even when I rolled down the car window to take a phone photo, thought it was rather artistic with the Black Hill in the wing mirror!  I went back down with the real camera and laughed at incognito hare, hmmm one of these lambs is not like the other lambs even if they do all have big ears.  It's cover was soon blown.  I went back to the original hare and it was happy to pose for some close ups, nonchalantly eating daisies as I snapped.

Good ponies find great homes!!

I may be having a wee sniffle... thank you Shirley for giving my pony the home she wanted.

"Just had to message you Laura to say what an absolute MACHINE that little Fatty is!!!

Played her in my first tournament this year today and she was incredible. The best chukker I have ever played on a polo pony. She out manoeuvred and out classed every pony on that pitch and everyone was commenting and asking where I get her from. Honestly the most fun I've ever had on a pony and I'm just a little bit excited!!!

Just had to tell you. Over the moon I got her and so grateful xxxx"

Chamfron Almendra - 2 years old

Almendra looking great as a two year old, she was happy to see Nicobar and Milano who had come home from being backed (yearling Calandria just peeking in too!)  The oldest of the Clarry Chamfron clan is Bombero and he is playing slow chukkas nicely.  Going to be a very lovely pink string in a few years time.

Still loving it!

Laughing at the sad face when I have failed to notice that the squirrel has cleaned out the bowl!
