Dani's dressage

The weather proved fickle this weekend after the scorching time we have had but the occasional shower didn't spoil our outing to St Piran's stud in Perranuthnoe to attend a dressage clinic with Peter Madison Greenwell.
Dani, our Spanish stallion is a familiar sight hacking through Perranuthnoe and the surrounding countryside with his friend Sootty and spends the rest of his days carefully watching the comings and goings of our guests through his liquid brown eyes from his stable overlooking the car park.
April is nearing her time now and so Sooty has "gentlemanly" given up his big stable for her for the time being and we are once again monitoring her through the night on the stable camera - we think about a week before the trans continental stork comes to call for the last time this year - Charles is hoping for a boy!
