This afternoon I printed a photograph from https://derrickjknight.com/2019/04/17/the-first-foal/ for which I had been asked. The rider’s daughter had identified her from the blog post and it was very pleasing to receive the request.
Later we drove into the forest via
Outside Pilley Community Shop
a loose string of ponies, totally unaware of Social Distancing, formed a disorderly queue outside the Pilley Community Shop, which wasn’t even open. Most drivers were content to wait patiently or to weave their way through the obstacles. One, surely inviting a kicking, shoved the animals with his small van and took the direct route. A man and a woman, from different directions, advanced on foot, clapping. This clearly amused one grey which, at the risk of losing its false teeth, emitted a good laugh in appreciation of the applause. As always, click on any image to access the gallery, each member of which may be bigified.
This evening we dined on baked gammon; penne cheese; a perfectly presented peppers, mushrooms, onions and leeks melange; somewhat elderly broccoli, and tender youthful runner beans with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank Carles Priorat 2016
