Plus 10 and not a cloud in the sky when driving in.

Sadly the roads were blocked off just past Andoversford early this morning as Police were sorting what sounded like a pretty nasty car crash.

The last day of the jump season summer holidays, but the ever keen Tom Bellamy, who has just returned from his away trip to Majorca was in bright an early to ride out two lots and give Kilty Caul a jump over fences.

Mark and Melinda Laws called in mid morning to see their KBRP horse Knockanrawley.

A few more GB medals at Rio.

Taunton farmer Ed Ling along with Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow won bronzes.

The Equestrian side made horror viewing as the cross country course was very trappy; there were too many fallers and too many nasty mistakes.

William Fox Pitt who was leading after the dressage stage sadly was one who also missed out because of the course.

Interestingly I was driving when I heard on my radio that they were saying the cross country course looked an easy one and needed to be as not many countries had the experienced rides like Teams from GB, USA or AUS.. Anyway it caught most out except AUS who look like wining the Gold..

Our vet Graham Potts will be busy making sure the AUS horses are all sound for the show jumping stage..

Graham, who really should be here this morning for his weekly visit, is the Australia Team Vet....Looking forward to reading Graham’s blog? Or perhaps we will have to settle for his stories and experiences over a coffee on his next two weeks time.

There are unlikely to be any movers and shakers in this week handicap charts as we have not had any runners and yes we did have a weekly vet visit.. Three Countries do have other vets and very good ones too..Liam Kearns was in this morning.

Lesson 2 in life..perhaps one I could not use yesterday.

A priest offered a Nun a lift.

She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.

The priest nearly had an accident.

After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg...

The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'

The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.

The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'

The priest apologised 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.'

Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.

On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129.

It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.'

Moral of the story..
