Took some Photo's of the foals this afternoon. Its so hard to get any decent photograph's in the Stable, cause they follow me around all the time and want cuddles. Managed to get a couple and then got Mick to take a couple, while I was on my knees in the Stable giving them a cuddle. Their coats are so thick now, like little Teddy Bears...
I'd like to introduce a friend of mine Debbie Dunbar. Debbie is a very accomplished Equestrian Artist. I first saw some photographs of Debbie's work at the Riding School that Harry attends. I can only say that her paintings, which are all done in Oils are breathtaking. She has done commissions for H.R.H Prince of Wales Private Collection, The Kings Troop and the Welsh Pony & Cob Society, to name but a few. If you'd like to see more of Debbie's wonderful paintings, and maybe even order a commissioned piece, please have a look at her web site www.debbiedunbar.net. This is a picture of one of her Greetings Cards, which she kindly gave me this evening. I've also put a link to her site in my side bar.
Today the old feeding troughs were taken out of the Barn. We gained at least another 2FT by removing them. The blocks laid out on the floor are roughly were the new Stable walls will be built. Mind you all that Rubble on the floor has now got to be moved, so think of me tomorrow on the Wheelbarrow.
Just got back from dropping Archie at his new home. He was really good in the trailer and when we got there, he walked lovely up the Lane to the stables. I'm over the Moon that he's gone to such a lovely home. (Remember this is the first Pony I've ever sold & I Love him to bits). He's got two little friends in the stable next door Monty & Gizmo, but their not quite as friendly as Archie. Carol showed me the beautiful Name plates , that she's had made for their stable doors. Black slate with each of their names engraved on them. I have a feeling that their all going to be thoroughly spoilt. Hopefully we will see Archie at the shows next year. I wish Carol & Tony every success with him.
