Plodding on!

I have started some very casual "turfing" - Turf is a Swedish game based on you collecting GPS points when you are out and about, those "turfs" get you points, medals and rankings.  Now there are people who take their turfing very seriously, clocking up 100km a day (and / or night) on their bikes and racking up huge scores.  I'm not one of them but it has encouraged me to go exploring.  We visited Dalkeith Country Park on Saturday and then I walked around the Bowmont Forest today.  I have it ear marked for a trip out in the (yet to be purchased!) trailer for Spidey.

How can it be March?

Spidey has been helping raise the step count this week and there appears to be snowdrops everywhere this year.  It is five years since I was disbanding the stud yet I still get enquiries about Criollos most weeks, interestingly no one else has managed to make a go of selling them in the UK and the other papered stallion has been gelded.  Mark's name still pops up occasionally on forums and as my stomach flips I think it is true, no one is truly dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.
