Another meet, another lost shoe. Having gone home early twice already this season with loose shoes it was no surprise to leave today clutching a hind shoe. With two others also returning home on three shoes I think it was a case of transitional ground.
Hunting diary is BACK with a whole new cast list and a new series of locations to get involved in! Truth is I did make it out two weeks ago, but Bluey had a loose shoe so we didn’t see much.
My first Croome & WW event was a pre-puppy show in June. While watching hounds and trying to cultivate some sort of understanding beyond “that one looks cute” a young girl came up to me and said “I hear you’re joining our hunt. My name is X and my pony doesn’t like water.”
With the season drawing to a close I had mostly forgotten that detail, but today I remembered it as the pony threw his rider into a deep puddle, and she became the first on a long list of names being sent to Splatman for his write up and £5 fine (payable to the Air Ambulance).
