iPhone Photos

Mark and I are officially Old Farts as it still amazes us that you can go for a walk to the back field and get images like these from your phone!

Anything you can do...

Spotless has been out hacking today, the lambs looked over and thought "that seems a cunning plan, mush, mum, mush"

Glorious day

On the farm, we've been out and about in... drumroll... T-shirts!  The Criollo foals have been showing off their moves, Osito has a very fluffy coat so time will tell if he was born sensible or not!

Fatty Foal!

Colt foal born at 4am, a full brother to Chamfron Ojo de Tigre and an extreme cuteness, fluffy and friendly.  Out of Fatima and by Arrayan so both parents imported and both parents play polo (along with everything else).  I'm hoping to keep a filly of this breeding so we will offer this lad for sale, if you like a lot of white on your roan... join our club!

Breaking and Schooling

Isla the Fell went home on Tuesday, a more settled balanced pony who had learnt to do flying changes and was very pleased with her new trick.  In her place came her field mate, Chamfron Angel Dust, ready to be backed and ridden away.  Mark has sat on her the last two nights and she was much more relaxed today.

Spotless also arrived back today, she has muscled up over the winter and looks really good.  She will stay for a fortnight or so to have her breaks and steering improved before heading of to riding club camp.

Badger Cam - Love is in the air

The birds are collecting nesting material furiously, the badgers are strolling off into the woods together and the deer, well he's in love with himself.  We have our first selfie!  The squirrel is just lurking...

Happy Easter...

There is something a little odd about that Easter bunny...
