A great morning on the yard, catching up with all the news from yesterday and making plans for the week.
Headed by Assistant Jamie Turnbull we went through every horse with Ciorstaidh, discussing their stages in training, their weight and their race aims. We have plenty of race meetings coming up at the end of the week and onwards and it is important that the horses are ready for their next runs.
Most of the two and three year olds are on a short holiday; they have had lots of work and have just had the dentist to check for and remove any wolf teeth. I am delighted with their progress, and guided by Derek they have turned into well behaved and well balanced strong youngsters.
We have a couple of new horses due on the yard this week, including Behindthelines, and two horses are in to point to point for my father; Chanceiton and Jack Steel.
This week we have an extra rider in Patrick, Cameron's little brother, who has fitted straight into the yard and has been riding up the gallops with confidence on his first day.
Pictured are some of second lot this morning coming in from schooling' Star Of Milan and Spoils Of War followed by Mighty Thunder and Run Rocky Run.
