First outing of the year

Jessica and Chamfron Colorado went flying round the Feary Isles on their first endurance ride of the season, 17km, 10.85kmph, HR out 34, HR return 32.  Then to celebrate he went out rug-less for a good roll in the mud!

Boris goes bold

As of today, in England, there is no longer a legal restriction to isolate if you test positive for Covid,  Scotland remains more hesitant with no major changes yet.  The vaccination passport scheme will be scrapped as of Monday in Scotland, with face masks no longer being mandatory on public transport or indoor venues as of the 21st of March.

Russian forces have invaded Ukraine in a full-scale assault by land, sea and air - in what is the biggest attack by one country on another in Europe since World War Two.  Worryingly forces have now seized control of the former Chernobyl nuclear power plant, around 100 miles from the capital Kyiv.

And Spidey missed the pre wash cycle of the feed bowls...

Recent Outings

Rebecca has been out showjumping with Chamfron Firefly, the 85cm class was previously out of Rebecca's comfort zone but they nailed it for second place.  Lovely photos with thanks to Chris Dundee photography.  Jessica took Colorado out for a 22km ride, including loading and towing for the first time on her own and Natalie had a BD outing with Bellini, her first outing after having a pacemaker fitted.  Brave pants all round!

Very little to report

It's been a dry and mild January interspersed with high winds, you walk in the woods and every day the landscape changes, big trees fall and well worn paths vanish under a bed of needles and dry leaves, it is oddly disorientating.  In theory as of the 1st of February we moved back to hybrid working, in reality the office is closed for renovation so it's still the long commute to the spare room in the morning.
