A Perfect Day?

Between injury and weather, we've basically been hibernating for two weeks now.  To be honest, we were both a bit down in the dumps, and had almost forgotten why we're here.

Finally, the thaw has well and truly set in, the Youngest Daughter is visiting this week, we're no longer struggling to keep the house warm and we're back to dog-walking and horse-riding.

I accompanied the YD and Anne on foot to record the first hack for two and a half weeks.

Both horses were relishing the warm weather (15C) and were totally relaxed, although every time Flurry came near me he wanted to come over for a cuddle.

Lunch on the terrace of a nearby Café after the hack was EXTREMELY pleasant...

...followed by a little bit of sightseeing to have a look at the snow-covered Alps in the distance.

Then there was another dog-walk to let Poppie and Roxy have a good run around, and afterwards, a sociable get-together with friends.... does it get any better?

There's a song about this....


  1. This looks like a wonderful day indeed! Can I ask what do your horses have on their feet? Are they boots instead of horse shoes?

    1. Yes they're renegade horse boots. We decided to go barefoot before we came to France, and the boots will help the horses' feet to transition.

  2. Great, and it looks like a lovely day. I managed to get a little time on Paddy myself, thanks to Joanne.

  3. A bit of sunshine makes all the difference, doesn't it?
