Oh my goodness, I knew weather wise we’d had an easier time in the West Country lately, that is until today.The winds have been incredible with icy rain blowing horizontally, the like of which I’ve never seen in the UK. Stud manager David and I with the help of his wife Elaine, brought all horses from the fields and they are now happily ensconced in the warm but first a roll in the indoor school.

I swear they were smiling as are we

12715779_993688970715352_2176648206925248898_nSuch sad news that dear friend Liz Salmon yesterday lost her long battle with cancer. What an amazing light and energy she had and she will be so sorely missed. Every time we spoke, she was always forward planning and ready for the next challenge and she and loving husband Phil, made the best and most of all moments. The Arabian world has lost another friend who loved and supported our breed, always in such a positive way.

RIP very special lady Liz, missing you already
