Menege of Dreams

The school is built – and it’s brilliant!

I can not recommend M&S Plant Hire, from Ashwater, Devon highly enough! By the way, they’re nothing to do with the well known high street retailer with the same initials, or, or at least, I don’t think so. The man who did the lions share of the work, Mark, is one of the hardest working, and most conscientious people I have ever met. . . He didn’t just go the extra mile, he went whole extra marathon.

Got a little bit of cosmetic work to do, but the school is ready for use.

So today we introduced the horses to it. We didn’t do much, just walked them round a couple of times on each rein, just to get a feel, and a smell of, the place. The school is surfaced with sand and chopped rubber, and at the moment it does smell quite strong. All of them took to it really well, and Florence has the dubious honour of being the first to poo in it..

Hopefully tomorrow I’ll get to ride in it. I couldn’t be happier

Moving Devon and Earth

Well how exciting! It’s Monday mornin, it’s just gone 8.00a.m., and there’s a man in an ENORMOUS excavator working in our top field! The school is being built!

I really didn’t think we’d get to this point so quickly. . For a start, the weather hasn’t exactly been ideal, but, it’s happening!

So , with a quick apology to the village in general for the next couple of weeks of noise, I’ll be the one walking 2 foot off the ground.
