It was plus 5, windy but dry first thing this morning..Thunderstorms later?

Thursday and our easy morning.. we now have 4 horses being ridden.. Two new ones (youngsters from France) that will be going out in the field next week..Oh by the way they  are for sale!

In these crazy times..It is all hands on deck to try and help the NHS and the Care home workers.

Paul Keller has been making face shields (nearly 100) for his local care home and he has now come up with the idea of adding colours to the shields to help identify the wearer when they might have to use them.. ideal for when we go racing again....

My sister has been making headbands for the NHS..

A friend of hers started the idea and set up this web site..

As Moo said..'Due to the excessive amount of time the staff wear masks they get blisters behind the ears from the elastic... hence the headband and the buttons.

Of the approximately 60 people in our little group we are producing 1000 a week which are being distributed to NHS staff...'

Tonight we clap..

Mary Dulverton passed this to me yesterday..It has been doing the rounds of all the social media platforms and rightly so..

''A message to all our Negative UK Press -  including Laura Kuenssberg of the BBC, Robert Peston of ITV, Beth Rigby of Sky, Piers Morgan of ITV, BBC News in general and all the other negative UK press.

Journalism is missing the "mood" in this great country of ours - the United Kingdom. We do not want or need blame. We do not want constant criticism of our Government who are doing their very best in a very difficult and unprecedented global emergency.

We want and need a constructive contribution to the national effort to help us out of this crisis. We need hope, optimism and faith, with less negativity and more positive support from these journalists. It is time you all changed your negative and political rhetoric for the health of this nation and start supporting our Government.
