Farewell Summer?

Well, after a really sunny weekend, the weather has become a little grey once more - but still dry thank goodness! The last of our swallows left on Saturday, we think there were three broods in the barn this year and a couple of young ones caused some excitement during training flights by flying into the kitchen by mistake. The Last Night of the Proms was also on Saturday, it always makes me feel that summer is really over and that it is time to start thinking about Christmas and surviving the winter!

At the moment we are making preparations for a visit from members of the South Western Assoc. of the Welsh Pony & Cob Society on Thursday. It is quite a while since we have hosted a stud visit and will certainly be a shock for our Cobs to see so many people (about 15) at one time! Here's hoping for good weather and that our visitors will like what they see - a report on the event will be posted as soon as we have recovered!
