This is my new blog to continue my journey with my Dales Ponies. It will also be the story of my building a new life for myself, alone now, except for my friends, horses and dogs, since my partner died in March 2009. We had lived and worked together, mostly twenty four hours a day, for nearly 28 years and I have never lived alone before. It is a tribute to my wonderful friends that I am still here, still sane(ish) and ready to re-invent myself. I love them all more than words can ever say and can never thank them enough for all they have done and are still doing. It is also a tribute to Alexandra Kurland and 'The Click That Teaches' that I know how to save myself now. To new beginnings.......

My Cows and Calves.


  1. Never really felt comfortable around cows myself. But yours are quite attractive and, dare I say it, cute.

    Love the focus Mom has on the camera....but it could be a bit intimidating. She looks "all business."

  2. Thank you Jean! She's actually a big old softie and would go anywhere or do anything for food but she was wondering why I was crouching down to take the photos.

    They are the two youngest calves, 3 months and 6 weeks, but they've got quite some trousers on them, as they say!

  3. The white cows are my two old Carolais's who I hand reared 14 and 16 years ago. They are just pets now but are halter trained and a very good influence on the others, so indespensable.

  4. That should have read Charolais!
