South East Mooch – Frost Folly Warfield. Sunday 26th February
Luck was on our side again and the rain held off! As expected a small group of us today but a wonderful one at that, with 2 new Manchester’s enjoying their first pack walk with their servants who also enjoying the experience.
Ziggy at 7 months old didn’t take long to settle in. She throughly enjoyed all the smells, new scenery and being in awe of her b&t friends. You know when you see the face of a Mannie seeing and doing things for the very first time….well it was wrote all over her cute little face.
I don’t know who enjoyed it more with seeing the new boy in the pack; Lisa Antonini (servant) or Wilf ‘speed of light’ Mannie machine. Jonathan Albutt I think we might of found Dylan’s double! So Lisa I could see your mouth drop to the floor in your car from pure joy when you turned up. So excited poo bags forgotten but we all had plenty to spare! David & Amelia both seemed to love the freedom that Wilf enjoyed of being chased, nicking the ball and out running Pocket Rocket Penny at times.
The girls Narla, Poppy, Willow & Penny we’re loving it and with the professional brown eyed smoothie Sheldon, they worked their looks for the livercake. Linda Walker good to see we distracted Sheldon enough to stop the psychosomatic limp.
A very different walk to normal which started on Meadows and then headed onto ramblers route which covered farmland, lanes with plenty of equestrian places and beautiful houses to dream off.
So I might of under estimated how long walk was and certainly felt how unfit I was after 2 and a half hour mooch with roast( lovely dog friendly pub) Bath and bed. Great fun and thoroughly enjoy our catch up and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Sunday 2nd was the first Obrediance heat of the year, it took place at Derby Equestrian centre with an entry of 8 teams.
Im pleased to announce that our team, Manchesters Reunited, were 2nd after heal work and 4th overall, a good start to this years competition!!
Don’t forget we have also qualified for the final at Crufts which takes place on the Thursday, please come and support us if you are around that day.
Quick reminder:
Our club open show is fast approaching, this is a fantastic opportunity for anyone wanting to have a go at showing, in a very relaxed atmosphere with plenty of help on hand to give you advice and pointers on how to get started.
