"I am currently trying to prevent Annabel chasing ducks on a playschool outing to Drayton Manor Park, but that's easy compared to how hectic it is at home!
Simon has broken his leg, so I'm juggling seven horses, eight puppies, two children and a broken husband! He was riding a three-year-old when a pheasant flew out and hit the horse in the chest. Being young, he reacted fairly strongly and Simon came off and broke his leg. I'm exhausted!
Our foal, George, has arrived! He was born on St George's Day and has four white socks and a blaze, which I'm delighted with. He really is great; he has a similar gait to Mr P - he's strong and uphill with a fabulous little crest. He has a lovely nature so we plan to take him to the KWPN grading in September.
Mr President is looking well; the swelling in his leg has gone down, but I don't want to bring him back to full fitness too quickly. He's 100% sound, but I don't want to risk bringing him back yet. We'll crack on with him when Simon is sound.
Mr Hyde has been doing well. He won the six-year-old qualifier at Kingswood EC on 74.8%, so he's qualified for the Hartpury finals and he's been going out at Advanced Medium. He's scored a 65% and a 66%, so I need just one more mark to qualify. He's working PSG at home now, so all good there.
Next on my list are Annabel's fourth birthday and Ben's first. We're going to have a fairies and gnomes party in the garden, but with Simon out of action, all cooking, clearing up and fetching of drinks is down to me! Time to enlist the grandparents...
Tinker has had her puppies and we're currently weaning eight miniature schnauzer puppies. If anyone wants one, let me know!"
