I am a 40 something horsey working mum with hubby and two teenage boys. Kept a diary for many years but due to the last 18 years of motherhood putting pen to paper has evaded me. So now blogging is my modern diary and here are a few of my moans and observations!

I Dedicate This Post To Our Hay Man - Andrew!
I just wanted to write about our friendly reliable farmer Andrew who delivers our hay for us. We were looking a bit low on hay this morning and also the horses are coming in starving - grass is no more..... So we decide to have three large round bales delivered, two in the barn and one in the field.
We decide this at 8.45am and within the hour, his green tractor is chugging up the lane with three bales for us! He pops one in the hay feeder in the field and then with our help , pushes two into our hay store. He even unwraps it and forks it all in for us! It would be such a struggle without him and he never lets our yard down. He fixes fences, unblocks drains, cut hedges, and generally runs about after us! He has even been known to turn up with cakes for us providing a cup of tea is made to go with it!
So "three cheers" to these great unsung hero's the farmers who work so hard, all year round to look after and provide for their animals on his farm and ours. Andrew is our unsung hero!
