It started off with the vet coming to vaccinate some of the horses…
The cute Exmoors dragged me aqua planing across the paddock. Megan was well impressed that i didn’t let go.
Mildred the mule punched me on the top of my head…..not impressed…
Then Megan forgot to tell me a car was coming, so i pulled out right in front of it……cheers Megan

Big and Beautiful
We had a great weekend at the Shire Horse Show….Seth was 5th in his class, senior gelding. It is his last year and he has done us proud.
Jasmin won Best Newcomer with him, it was a very strong class with 19 horses in. Well done Jasmin…
William came 8th in his class which was brilliant as five months ago he nearly killed himself in the stable…He scalped himself and fractured his skull. It has only just really healed…Thanks to our friend Craig who looked after him over the winter and gave him lots of tlc.
Without doubt the star of the show was Baby Norman…Not yet 2 yrs old, he came 8th in his class and won the trophy for Best Grey from all the greys at the show….
It is a mental weekend, thanks to everyone who came and helped…and to Keith and Pauline who manned the Tia stall…and obvioulsy to Jo and all my weekend girls who looked after the farm.
It is a good thing that Tia is doing and we couldn’t do it without all the support and people in the background who have over the years made Tia what it is. Thankyou massively….Deb
I had forgot there were two 5 o’clocks in the day…
Good luck to Annie, Lily, Molly, Belle, Britney, Fizz, Nylah, Olive, Carla and Laurel who have all set off to a warmer life down south.
Thanks to Joe for transporting them and MASSIVE thanks to everyone at Hersham Hounds for helping us out, yet again…
This lovely lad is still in the vets in Doncaster. His break is healing well but they are happy to keep him there for a while.
If anyone is interested in him, please ring me. He is expected to make a full recovery and is only about a year old..Deb
Just to update people who have Tia dogs out on foster. We have changed our vets to Donaldson’s in Huddersfield.
We are sending a letter out to everyone to explain the new procedure….
A lot of things are changing…….Deb
As well as all the dogs here at the kennels, we have a 1yr old lurcher in a vets in Doncaster that has just had an operation for a smashed up leg…and we have a 2 month old lurcher in a vets in Settle that will be having her broken, left to mend, which hasn’t, leg off this weekend.
Thanks to these vets for saving their lives…they didn’t have to, they could easily have just put them to sleep…
Foster homes needed for these two next week please…..Deb
