I now realize that a place I pass often has a new fence, which must have cost the price of a Series 1 1/2 E Type, just to keep in a couple of alpacas. That's ostentatious wealth, that is.

Sheffield, charmless, innit? Like Neasden or Milton Keynes, a place people are from but not one they go to.
I don’t know anything really about horses...I used to watch Mr Ed on TV every Friday night if that counts. But they look like fabulous stables and lovely horses. I’d say you and your horses did very well...very well indeed and who needs an E-Type anyway?

Hmmmm Sheffield. I left when I was 20, only been back a handful of times but it will always have a place in my heart.

Ducks? It was you with the runner ducks I thought altough it is dbd33 appearing that made me think of that.

Great to see you.

Thank you. There's a lot to do. For a start the underground pipe filled with water and froze before the electrician came so the whole thing is powered by a big cable that goes out the window of the tack room. The ground froze with all the heavy equipment ruts in it so there's grading to do. And then, of course, there are the items that were deliberately left for spring, for a start everything needs staining.

Still, happy horses make a nice view in this era of working from home.

Very nice. The stables look brilliant. We keep saying we will take a trip out your way. Last time was to collect daughter’s pup from a breeder 9 years ago.
