....involving ponies, of course! As it's the holidays, Magali had organised a footy match for all the kids on the little ponies, using a big inflatable exercise ball. Great fun was had by all....
Of course, we had to chase some runaway sheep and goats off the pitch before we started....
Ali's team was called "Bella Sara" and they drew 3 all.

He was a very good boy, stood still when I tied him up, didn't attempt to go and eat hay (!), let me trim most of it off with scissors. Then we got the clippers out to tidy up, they're actually designed for dogs, they were a bargain in Lidl, I bought them to do some training with the girls, but they did a good enough job. He was good as gold.....

She was very unsure to start with and kept her head pressed against my leg, but after a while she relaxed and seemed to be happy enough. The only thing that spooked her was some cows running up to the fence, she was quite interested in the donkeys of doom, here's a little video:
We did quite a bit of trotting, Gandalf was full of beans today:
And even a little canter going up the hill to the village although she can run faster than Gandalf with his little legs, she got a bit ahead of us, good job I always take them out on a long line!
Must get someone to video us doing that one day.....
Very good little girly

Had a greaty day today, all that preparation paid off, the sun came out, lunch was fabulous thanks to Harveys Restaurant and we raised €100 for Equine Rescue France.
