Busy Bank Holiday Weekend

For those of you that don’t know me, I have a guilty secret! I have a coloured cob! Yes, a potentially hairy, (truthfully it was hairy, very hairy, until Friday!!) coloured cob.

Hunting season was about to start and Cob was very actively complaining that he was unclipped, that he had merely one rug on and that he was generally in no condition to be seen in public.

I was in China as part of the technical support service that we provide to our customers across the globe. The hotel that I was staying in was directly opposite the Shanghai Race Club building.

Outer Mongolia is an actual place! And I was there

Connolly’s RED MILLS really is a global organisation. This becomes even more poignant when your mission is to travel to Outer Mongolia to give nutrition seminars to the trainers.

As you can imagine, my dear darling husband was highly amused by the idea of sending me off to Outer Mongolia. The amusement value was slightly overshadowed when he realised that the dishwasher fairy and the cooking fairy were joining me on my trip!

Nutrients Without the Calories

I realise it is very late in the year, but… yes my two old dears have just foaled. I probably have the youngest foals in the country.

Rescued from the jaws of eminent death the two mares came to me late in the breeding season last year. After a barrage of thinly veiled threats from me they duly went in foal within 24 hours of each other.
