It’s been just over a week since mothers day which was a belated one this year. However I was spoilt, I was in desperate need of some new breeches as there were holes in my old ones in the most unflattering places.. As with most of my things I was bought the plum colour which is gorgeous from Horze Equestrian (active silicone grip). I can say they are great breeches and good value for money. In fact this is my third pair! He also treated me to a cap I had been after from Horseware. It has a light built into the peak and it already has proved to be very useful. I got to test it out properly after going to see Monty Roberts at The Grange equestrian centre in Okehampton. I was very lucky to be given my ticket by a friend in exchange for wine and chocolate! I hadn’t seen Monty Roberts in action before and it was honestly an incredible evening, if you had ever thought of going and just hasn’t gotten around to it GO!
That night I was also lucky to have managed to get a lift from South Wooley with a lovely lady called Jo who very kindly made space for me in her Jeep. Thank goodness for that! As we were happily shivering away watching Monty the snow was going down hard outside! It was expected. But not quite like that. After and interesting journey back from Okehampton we had decided that my car wasn’t going to manage the drive home. The whole 5 minutes. But the road was so covered and slippery already it just wasnt worth it. So there my car stayed. Jo kindly dropped me back to the village near the stables as the temperature had dropped down such a lot I had decided to walk to the yard to put a fleece on under Sam’s heavyweight rug. Clutching my hot water bottle and turning on the light on my fancy hat my Son got me off I went. I was quite impressed at how much light my hat gave off considering it was pitch black down the lane at midnight! After eventually waddling home like a penguin in the freezing blizzard like conditions I got home.
The next day there was a lot of snow and a toddler can only stay outside playing for a certain amount of time before removing hats and gloves and getting bored there wasn’t a lot else to do. So we decided to bake. Seeing as we do try not to have cake around the house too much I decided not to bake a cake but instead the horses were baked treats. Needless to say they loved them. Happy toddler after baking, (my) happy waistline from not eating cake and a VERY happy Sam!
