Martin’s Blog Monday 14th August

What a special day we had on Saturday celebrating Andrew and Sophie Tinkler’s Wedding Day at Sophie’s family home in Cold Ashby, Northamptonshire. A lovely wedding and, predictably, followed by a brilliant party. After a pretty awful week weather wise they were so fortunate with the weather as the sun shone all afternoon.

Yesterday was equally good weather and today isn’t that bad either although the rest of the week looks very autumnal.

As usual we are busy here on a Monday morning. Nick Partridge, our Farrier, is here and with more horses coming back in and a few runners this week he has plenty to do. Maggie Turner, our Physio, also has quite a few to check, again those coming back in from their summer breaks are checked along with any others we have queries about and also those due to run. Nancy John was helping Maggie today. Nancy is on a work placement for a fortnight with us from Cambridge University and will hopefully have learnt a lot from Maggie.
