23rd July  Well after a fantastic display of cob stallions at the RWAS l met up as agreed with some very special people and friends from Scotland Moria Jeanette and Sophie.  It seems to be becoming a tradition that we met up now and what a great evening we had, full of laughs and fun , made even more funny to know when you left us at gone midnight you got locked out of your B&B  and had to sleep in the car.. Thank you for a great time and all the lovely gifts. I am already contemplating next year lol !!

22nd July After a great first day at the show we had another couple of visitors in Davinia and Michael.  We met as friends on facebook so it was great to meet you in person and show you around our stud, hopefully you will be able to spend more time with us next time.

22nd July  We had some returning visitors in Eileen and Dave Wormold (Tillybo Stud) , and Sue and Kelvin Day (Blethyn Stud), yes another who took first place at the RWAS show well done Sue and Kelvin.  It was great to have time to show them around the stud and show them how things had changed from their last visit.  We also had pleasure in being able to show Eileen and Dave one of their homebred in Tillybo Moonflower.  Later that evening our permanent resident over RWAS and Faye Oaks week arrived namely Ann Bale-Williams (Baledon Stud) armed with lots of goodies and her famous cakes and cheesecakes along with numerous other things.  So great to have a wealth on knowledge experience to share our home with over such a prestigious week of showing.  We hope you enjoyed your stay and visiting the boy Baledon Michelangelo.

21st July  Had four lovely visitors to the stud, Lynneann and Alison from Scotland.. It was great to meet you both and was pleased with your success at RWAS. Thank you for the lovely gift which we will treasure.   Later that evening we had two wonderful ladies Denise and Heather, who looked forlorn when l picked them up at RWAS showground (nudge nudge wink wink).  They were visiting all the way from Australia.  We had a lovely chat about Eppynt Shot who Denise owns.. We really hope they enjoyed there visit.  Thank you also for your lovely gift and a great momento to remember you both by, hopefully you will be visiting again.
