Off into the mountains we went with Luismarrow who knows everyone from here to Hondorus with a horse, it seems!! We tried many today, about 7 in total and found a lovely grey gelding on a farm nearby. He is terribly head shy and been roughed up, so cant wait to get him and work with him. I am sure he is going to come good really quick. The seven games will give him confidence. I rode him over all sorts of terrain and he was like a mountain goat. Fingers crossed his blood tests come back good.
Chris has had a more difficult day with ichy scratchy plants, hand planting grass and dealing with machines that wouldnt co-operate. Poor guy. Still it will all be worth it in December......fingers crossed!!
