Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone. Violette Reporting. Actually, that title should have read Stupendous Saturday but we are expecting more good stuff today, so we thought it would be OK.
We had a glorious day for the parade and my handsome young knight looked so good riding me! #1 was simply delighted!
Here we are getting ready to leave. He is carrying the colours of Midhurst, a town in England with which ours is twinned:
Here we are approaching the castle:
Going up to the castle gate:
Our medieval castle is 1000 years old!
We were both pretty proud!
And here we are actually riding into the castle grounds like knights of old!
And I had SO MANY visitors!
They had a contest where visitors voted on who was the most beautiful mare. I won hoofs down! #1 was so proud of me!
It was a long, long day and I confess that, by the end, I was getting a bit annoyed, so I was very glad to go back to my field and be able to tell all my friends about my amazing day. #1 tells me that I am a wonderful breed ambassador and I should be very, very proud!
