A Morning At Mainstone

On Sunday morning I went to visit Luke an amazing horse, who is owned  by a friend.

I started my visit by giving Luke a few treats of carrots and apples which understandably he loved.

I enjoyed listening to him munching, as well as breathing in the wonderful smell that horses have ( this is something that my husband, who is not horsey does not understand at all!)

Luke had just come back from a hack ( ride) with his owner, Michelle so after she washed him off , I helped by using a sweat scraper to remove the excess water.

I spent the remainder of my visit generally patting, kissing and admiring this magnificant animal.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank my good friend Michelle Clayton for allowing me to have this experience and to my sister, Kim Watts for escorting me and taking the photos. You can read more of my horsey adventures, before I suffered a stroke, by purchasing my e book titled Equestrian dreams Click Here To Buy

As always questions/comments are welcome.

  1. I absolutely know what you mean about that wonderful horse smell! They are such calming and majestic animals aren’t they? I love your photos and it looked like you had a great time. Thank you for sharing with #DreamTeam x

  2. Horses are beautiful animals. There is just something so understanding about them.
    Glad you enjoyed your visit. 🙂

    1. Thanks, I have written 2 e books actually, one about my experiences as a child minder and the other is about my dream of owning my own horse

  3. #thesatsesh lots off my pupils use therapy horses…sadly, one ‘broke’ one as the child was so damaged and the horse absorbed it. Imagine being so sad that you’re taken out of therapy for the horses welfare…sad but true. Make sure you pop and see Luke regularly, he sounds like a nice chap.

  4. Ah, what a wonderful time. Spending time with horses is so nice and I enjoy it a lot too when I can. I know what you mean about the smell, my husband is a city boy and doesn’t like it either!! #animaltales

  5. Of course horses have a wonderful smell, best appreciated when up close nuzzling their velvet noses. I do however think that my husband and yours attende dthe same school of “not understanding horses!”

    Thank you for adding this post to #AnimalTales and apologies for being so late reading and commenting. I have been struck down by an evil lurgy and am only just getting back on track. The next linky opens tomorrow so I hope you can join in.
