The boys have finally gone out for the summer….

Declan has started to behave a lot better now that he’s allowed us to handle him more, and he’s a star at leading now. Steve’s demonstrating how to lead and Declan is being really well behaved, very please with his behaviour today he was really good, when being taken to his new field.

Why At, Declan and Chance

Well we’ve finally turned the boys out for the summer. From the left the uncle 2 year old Why At with his nephews, brothers 2 year old Declan and then 3 year old Chance.

Torpenhow Solo

OK so spend a week away only to return to find Solo is still running around, convinced now he’s an eventer in the making, hes so bold and quite fast running around, just wait until I add the yearlings to the field in the next few weeks. It’ll be interesting to see what he makes of them.

The grey around his eyes makes his eyes really stand out. Pity he’s going to be grey as he’s a very handsome bay at the moment.

He’ll be looking for a new home in 5 months. Any interest welcome……
