Plus 7 and dry when driving in.

Nothing ever goes smoothly all the time.. Bedding.. Straw.. Problem..

It has been a difficult year for cereal farmers as this years harvest has been so wet; as a result we are struggling to find decent clean and dust free wheat straw to bed our horses down on for the coming winter.

Hutsbys who normally supply us are struggling to find any, so if anybody reading this has a large barn full of good quality wheat, barley or even rye straw please get in touch asap...We use roughly 25 large bales a week..Failing to find any will probably mean that we will have to change our bedding next week..

If that was not a good way to start the morning then try a 90 minute appointment with the dentist.. Dribbles later I fear..

Graham Potts our vet was in this morning.. scoping a few..

The value of a #2 Pencil..

Carol was not the best student in Catholic School. Usually she slept through class.

One day her teacher, a Nun, called on her while she was sleeping in class. 'Tell me Carol, who created the universe?'

When Carol didn't stir, but little Johnny who was her friend sitting behind her, took his pencil and jabbed her in the rear.

'God Almighty!' shouted Carol.

The Nun said, 'Very good' and continued teaching her class....

A little later the Nun asked Carol, 'Who is our Lord and Savior?'

But Carol didn't stir from her slumber.  Once again, Johnny came to her rescue and stuck her in the butt.

'Jesus Christ !!!' shouted Carol.

And the Nun once again said, 'Very good,' and Carol fell back asleep.

The Nun asked her a third question....'What did Eve say to Adam after she had her twenty-third child?'

Again, Johnny came to the rescue. This time Carol jumped up and shouted, 'If you stick that damn thing in me one more time, I'll break it in half!'

The nun fainted.

To finish .. Happy birthday to Irish Champion trainer Willie Mullins.. 61 today.
