Enjoying A Little ‘Slower Time’

Bill LevettWell another weekend is nearly over and Christmas is fast approaching. Jenny¬†and I are enjoying being at home a little bit more. It is nice although cold¬†for it still to be reasonably dry and it certainly doesn’t feel like winter¬†has really taken hold as yet – long may it last.

We had a lovely visit from Veronica today. We went out to the fields to¬†see her horses on their holidays and it was great to see them chilling out –¬†covered in mud, simply enjoying being horses.

Back in the stables the young ones are progressing well with both Sparkles¬†and Cassie in ridden work and improving all the time. It is nice to see Gus¬†growing into himself and benefitting from a pressure free 2013 – he is¬†turning in to a very smart horse and I’m itching to get him out and have a¬†full year competing him in 2014 – albeit with a slow introduction to¬†eventing.

Away from the yard РI was told off today for beating the kids bowling РI cannot help myself but constantly have a desire to win, be it on horse back, the bowling alley or a simple game of ludo! It causes much amusement in our family.

Cheers,

Bill
