Shire Horses, Sea and Rachel Rose Reid

15 Mar

1   We went to The Lost Gardens of Heligan today to watch the Shire horses ploughing. What skill and what a pleasure to watch man and beasts at work. Listening to his instructions and watching the horses reactions was brilliant. He always started with, “Now, listen, horses!” and they did!

3  Tonight, The Suitcase Singers had a gig at Miss Peapod’s and the wonderful Rachel Rose Reid told some of her amazing stories which were just  so moving, especially with the backing of the singers.  I have no voice tonight so was in the audience – and what a treat that was! Under Claire Ingleheart’s tutelage we have become quite the choir! We look good, we sound good and we have fun. What’s more, the audience all around me agreed with me!    Thank you, Suitcase Singers, Daisy Berks and Rachel Rose Reid for an excellent night of entertainment.

    Thanks for Shire photos, Sally. They are the team from Healey’s Cyder Farm. One of the mares is quite new to ploughing too.

    Those Shire horses are absolutely magnificent – powerful and so beautifully built. Loved the shots. The one of the moon is exquisite.
