Valley Farm Diary September 2011

Back to work on the farm this month. Replacing old fencing, replacing old...

...field water tanks and fitting in new ones, sweeping and harrowing meadows and generally clearing up after the summer.

We had an interesting couple of days when the film crew making 'Private Peaceful' arrived to do some filming.

Some of the ponies attended the Make-A-Wish show at Easton and had a wonderful day out. The weather forecast had put quite a few people off, but on the day there was no sign of rain and we all had a great show coming home with assorted rosettes and trophies.

One evening found us at the St. John Ambulance HQ in Framlingham with a load of gear for a Circus Workshop for the St. John Badgers. Entertainment all round!

We finally managed to find the time to put the wedding horse team together. It's been on the cards for a long time to put the two pairs together as a team, and we finally did it. The horses seemed to enjoy the outing and went very well. Snow and Ice in the lead and Nimbus and Stratus in the wheel. A few days later we took them out again for another run. Great fun.

Towards the end of the month we had the judging for the East Anglian Business Awards, Best Camp-site. (The outcome of this was to be selected as a Finalist. Very pleasing)

Finally, we finished off the month holding the Side Saddle Association exams one Sunday followed in the evening by the Junior Cavalry Display to which we welcomed the Wickham Market division of the British Legion.
