Today Shady and his rider Jolan had a first time participation at ribbon day. Both were slightly nervous at stages but did a really good job. The reward was – apart from lots of fun – 13 ribbons if I counted correctly.

Well done team.

The storm that was supposed to come was not too bad after all. A bit of rain that we loved very much and quite some wind with a bit of thunder and lightning. All that would have been easy to take, if it wasn’t for: Moonshine.

First day in a long time without rainy weather, so we went down into the valley for fixing things, moving things and play things.

Did a stroll down to the alpacas with Jolan, our daughter. The halter we brought did not fit any of the boys or girls so we just fed them and progressed towards building a little bivy out of old branches and tree bark.

We have been busy on various little projects to keep us busy. From cooking to exercising, watching some movies to projects outside.
