So the 2016 calendar has been finalised…excited muchly!
March is set to be seriously busy, with a ride planned for every single weekend.
The observant of you may have noticed that Chip is sporting a beautiful purple bandage…somehow he managed to get a foreign body of some kind just on the top of his fetlock, which resulted in a bit of an infection. A trip to the vets, a course of antibiotics and we are hoping that he will be okay soon. He’s still sound and happy in himself and I think he is rather enjoying all of the attention.
I have had the saddle fitter out to measure him for a Frank Baines Enduro saddle which should be with us by the beginning of February. Then we can start ridden work again!!!
I’m off to Yawl Hill Stud at the end of January to help with the fitness work with Eskar, Maverick & Pollyana. I’m looking forward to seeing them all after their winter break. I have heard that Eskar is very full of it because of the light winter work…….he is keen to get back to competing. I have the same sentiment!
I have also been busy building my new website www.bellafricker.co.uk and will be going to BETA on the 24th January which will be a really great day out I’m sure!
