Once again the weather smiled on Southfield Stables with glorious sunshine all day. There were plenty of owners viewing their horses and looking at potential new ones. Pat Jones, breeder, was there to answer questions about some of his youngsters and all the stable staff, beautifully turned out, were on hand to serve food and drinks, answer inquiries and make sure that their charges looked their best. A parade of horses was followed by a delicious buffet. Another great day, thank you Linda and team.
Preparing the yard...

ready for the owners.

After a quiet period during the summer, the first signs of the coming winter campaign were showing at the yard today, ironically on one of the warmest days that this August has had to offer. The National Hunt horses are back in and are starting to do roadwork, and there was a good turnout for breakfast with their owners coming to see them. On top of all that Linda announced that the winter menu for breakfast would be starting next week!
Itoldyou, enjoying the sunshine, is back in for the new campaign.

Oliver (stable lad) had probably his greatest thrill in racing so far when he had his first race ride in public at Lingfield this evening. He partnered Parisian Star in a special charity race open to stable staff. Though they didn't make the frame in the mile and a half contest, they had a great time. Oliver was supported at the course by his parents and other colleagues from the stable.
Getting ready to weigh out.

Oliver was over at the Hollingbourne hill gallop this morning riding Parisian Star, his mount next Saturday at Lingfield in the special stable lads charity race. His parents had come down to watch as had a few of the Saturday breakfast regulars. Everyone was pleased with how it went and they are all looking forward with anticipation to the big day.
