Valley Farm Diary - June 2013

We are now into 'Countdown to pony camp' mode. This has involved us in repainting all the chalets, finding, cleaning and repairing all..
...the equipment required for the numerous equine disciplines and collecting up our summer loan ponies. Not to mention a fair bit of panic to have everything ready by the due date. The summer 'Redcoats' have started to arrive and as such need to learn the ponies names, where everything is and what is expected of them. Louise, the first of our three French students was first to arrive, minus her luggage which the airline delivered four days later.

We also welcomed another Camargue Horse, Louis, recently retired from Endurance riding. Poor Louis, the first morning I took him out hacking I think I confused him. We set off down the track and half an hour later we arrived back in the yard. I could see from his expression he thought I must have read the map wrongly. He assumed we would end up hundreds of miles somewhere else or at least back in Devon where he had travelled up from.

Nimbus and Snow were out on the wedding carriage again at Dennington and as usual behaved impeccably.

Juno, our Sikh wedding horse, did a side saddle prom this month which was fun.

Mid month we entered the Small Farm Business Award again and await the results in October.

Acorn, one of our western horses gave us a heart stopping moment when she managed to sever an artery in her leg whilst walking across the yard. We still can't work out how she did it. The vet was wonderful and sewed her all back together again. The pictures on face book showed her drama queen moment off quite well.
