Church Farm Holidays

Well, Dinah recovered from her kick in the field and by the end of September 1999 she was fit enough for a spot of forest hacking. So off we went back to Gloucestershire!

The Granary

Monarch & Dinah outside
						the stables

The Granary seemed like home from home, and Monarch was happy to find that Dinah was actually there after a night in his old stable !

We got the impression that Dinah approved of the paddock - who says horses can't smile! ... and anything she can do ... ah well.

They could not believe that they had a whole paddock between the two of them
- much better than home !



Sheba was getting
the better of Mini - sometimes !

Forty was pleased to see us again.
