Foals playing in the snow (Velvet Dove's foal in the lead)

View on the way to the gallops

We are still struggling to come to terms with Blu's death. My daughter, Jay, who is on her gap year in Vietnam sent me this lovely e-mail - "hey ma, i hope your alright about blu, i'm so sorry you must be devastated at least she went doing what she was bred for and we were lucky to have had such an amazing horse. its just sad that she didn't have much time to shine. i hope your alright and i will ring soon, send my love to doug.love you xxxxxxx"

Life must go on and the snow is beautiful to look at but very difficult to work with. Whilst the gallops are fine to ride on the track getting to the gallops is lethal so the horses have just gone on the walker for today.
