Its pretty obvious where Norman Thelwell found his inspiration. those determined faces, with noses thrust out, ears flat back and manes and forelocks flying, combined with round bellies above a blur of legs was hilarious. As we try not to drag the same ponies out into the show ring again and again (we actually exhibited four mares this year) Clemmy only went out three times. but she did achieve first champion or reserve each time! It flew on a strange trajectory and went short in the water. I was shocked after that and needed a few holes to recover. 2 sixes on par 5 was the other bad news of the day, but keep my score on the three last holes. Congratulations to the organisers, to all who took part, supplied gifts for everyone, and generally supported this thriving Group. 9th December 2017 Male animals need their dignity, so its just possible that doing up a stallions forelock in a girlie plait could do some serious injury to his macho image in the company of other boys!
2018 will have other surprises in my private life with a baby in February. Quite a program! Week-off before Mauritius open Nov-2017 Jumeirah, Sunday 19 November 2017 Well, I shaved too many holes today to have any momentum.
