Well, hello from the home of the Arabian Horse, I am here with the boss in Dubai for the richest Ariabian Horse show in the world, I feel a bit like a saltwater fish in fresh water, I am a rider of Hunters, my ID x TB mare for example, who can carry me all day in the hunting field, well maybe not all day. The boss and I have been invited out here, as a thank you for her skill in judging horses, no not Arabians on this ocasion though she did pick in the correct order 1, 2 and 3 in the 1st class.

More showing tomorrow where I expect our host to do as well as today.

The Hole 03/06/2008

Well we have a 40 x 20m hole in our field next to the house, well slightly over, now the detective would say that sounds like the size of a Sand Arena , and I would agree, and agree again if they said your building one aren't you? Yes indeeed we have a hole and the work is going well so far ,the weather has been favorable and the Heavy JCB driver - Will-  was a genius, he has carved out the perfect shape that is at the right degree of slope, the drainage has been laid and the trenches are being filled as I talk, then Terram , and then stone, then Road Shavings, then: are that is the question  " easiride" or sand and rubber, depends on negotiation with the suppliers. Then fencing round it, my good friends from H&L Skid Steer are working wonders. yes I am hoping for some sponsorship, I think I may have been promised some free straw, we'll wait on that one.

It has to be said I was expecting to pay for this hole and its contents but the Boss has come up trumps and found most of the money herself!!.
