Its been a very long time since I wrote a blog and so much has happened.
We had a very busy summer in 2014 and welcomed lots of guests and many of them became friends, we shall look forward to welcoming them again this summer and meeting new people too.
Unfortunately at the begging of July I had an accident riding my horse (Boris) which resulted in a broken scapula. Which was extremely painful, and a huge inconvenience as it was peak time with the Gites, So I had to relay on help with everything. But we managed and had a very succesful season.
In november I made the decision to send Boris away to a lady called Helen Green near Villarreal, she specialises in a natural method with horses, and is a fantastic horsewoman, I have learnt so much from her, and I have to say i didn’t think Id ever ride Boris again but after all Helen’s hard work with him I found the courage to get back on. A picture below is of me riding him for the first time since I fell off in July.
Here is another picture of me working with him doing what we call long lining.
Boris still has a long way to go as do I but I hope to have him home soon.
Also in November, Andrew and I made the decision to welcome a new puppy in to our lives. He is now nearly 7 months and is Called Arthur he is a fox red labrador is adorable and extremely intelligent, Coco and Shamrock have excepted him in to our house hold. Arthur is looking forward to meeting everyone this summer.
Below is a picture when we got him home on the first day.
This was taken at the weekend, Arthur is growing up so fast.
We have had a very mild winter here at Peyrenegre this year, there is defiantly a feel that spring is in the air as the evenings are starting to draw out, and last week we sore the Cranes flying over, this for us is a sure sign that winter is over and spring is here.
It’s all systems go at Peyrenegre now as the grass is growing so we have been busy in the garden, cutting grass and sorting out the vegetable patch so it’s all ready for planting stuff. The Gites will be getting opened up again soon after the winter, and I’m looking forward to getting the pool open and with it been heated it means swimming can start early. This year we will have the sun flowers in the back ground all around us which makes for a fantastic view.
The chickens are back laying again after a spell of going through malt, and we have separated our three Gold laced Orpington’s and the cockerel so that in the coming weeks we can start hatching out some chicks. The ducks have also started laying so we have decided to let them sit on a few duck eggs so that we will also have some ducklings very soon. It such an exciting part of the year welcoming new life in to the world.
We will look forward to welcoming old and new clients this year.
We still have some empty weeks to fill so if you would like to come and stay with us in our peace of tranquility then don’t hesitate to get in touch. Please click on the link below.
