Flaming June it has not been! A LOT of rain fell last week, and planned outside get togethers very much on hold for the moment.
Planned runners staying at home as racing mainly cancelled due to water-logging. If only we had had some of this in the Winter it would have made life so much easier.
The holiday makers not looking wildly impressed with the conditions, but balanced out by no flies yet & plenty of grass, its probably an OK option!
Fair to say there are several who have completely let themselves go, and whose figures are going to take a bit of getting back!
Nice to see them looking so relaxed and not too long before they are back in again.
The team having well earned breaks, and nice to welcome Finbar Mulrine who has been coming in to ride out whilst Ceris off in Ireland fora few weeks.
Plenty of visitors here to visit and see the horses having some down time.
Only a couple of boxes left to power wash, the strimming is a never ending job as well, as fast as you get to the end its time to start at the beginning again!
We said a sad au revoir to Alice at the end of May (although she has already been back to ride out!!) before she heads off for her Australian adventure. Hope to see her again before she goes.
Hopefully a couple of runners at Uttoxeter this week conditions allowing.
