Leon jumping his first ditch with Paddy

Laverty - who wants to be a brown horse (not grey) and Moonie looking on

I daren't say it but the horses are working out of their skins at the moment - that's done it - no doubt they will all go down with the virus now..... They all seem to be progressing at a very satisfactory rate and very happy - the grass is still too firm to gallop on so we are restricted to the all weather but the horses seem to like the routine and go out every morning with their ears pricked.

We had a lovely time at Cheltenham on Sunday, beautiful weather, good racing and not too crowded, but caught up with a few friends.

I can't believe that it is the middle of November and I am still mowing the lawn, which I did this afternoon, presumably for the last time. It is fabulous weather at the moment, we have been nicely spoilt which hopefully will mean that the winter won't seem so long.
