Busy Bee's...

Yesterday was so busy, that I didn't get a moment to update my blog.
We went to another Horse Show at Nevern. Harry got 2nd Place in his class and then 5th in the coloured class. Harry was showing Min and I was showing Warrior.
I got 4th Place in the Stallion Class and 4th in the Coloured Class.
We got home about one in the afternoon.
Mick went straight off to the airport to pick up Ben and Katie, can't believe he's been away for two weeks. The time has flown by.
Ben's not a very happy man at the moment, on Tuesday, he had his hair cut and dyed. Now the cut is lovely, but they cocked up the dyeing process and he now has Lilac hair instead of Electric Blue hair. Needless to say they didn't charge him. I'm under very strict orders not to post photographs! LOL.. The colour of his hair at the moment reminds me of Parma Violet Sweets. He brought a blue colour spray to cover it up until we can get hold of the blue Hair dye and re dye it. It then reminded me of a Smurf..
Harry helped me muck out the stables and then we spent two hours walking the fields, pulling up the dreaded Ragwort, as Mark the local farmer had rung while we were out, to say he was coming to cut the Hay. Ragwort is extremely poisonous to live stock and Horses, especially when it's dry. So we had to make sure it was all out just in case any gets into the Hay Bales.
By the time we were finished I was exhausted and promptly came indoors and collapsed in a heap on the sofa.
This morning we've been removing some large branches from an over hanging tree, so that Mark can get passed them with his tractor, as he caught a couple yesterday. Mark is coming back this afternoon to do the turning. Looks like our whole weekend will be taken up with getting the Hay in..

Congrats on your awards (is that the right way to say it?) As a person that does not farm or have any livestock I am amazed at the work. I hope you get a chance for a few moments of rest this weekend. The sight of hay bales is one of my favorite things in the world. I am sad when my neighbor comes and collects them and takes them off to his barn :) Poor Ben- lilac is not as cool as electric blue if you are a guy!!

Congratulations are in order here! If his hair is as blue as that 1st ribbon, I would have dyed it too ;). Lilac isn't that bad, if you ask me.

Well done to both of you for the awards!
Poor Ben and his hair. Hope he gets the right shade of blue soon. Got to laugh at his hair disaster... lol.
Hoping the weather stays good for you all bringing in the hay.
Must be nice to have Katie to stay for a while and a bit of female company.
