Daisy is home. Christmas can start now in our house. Although Floss has been home for over a week, we have not decorated anything or thought any Christmassy thoughts until today.
But Christmas is not Christmas without going for a ride first so we caught our horses and tacked them up. Daisy reminded me that she last rode in August. Mr Bimble was very pleased to see her.
It was not looking good outside so Daisy started by riding Iacs in the indoor school.
I took a few photos of Klaengur and Taktur while she was riding in the school.
Then the weather cleared and we went out. I rode the newly shod Haakon and he was a gentleman, never even bothering to canter, just staying in walk, which was very generous of him considering. Everyone was very unfit, fat and puffing but we had a good time.
As we reached home, the weather descended again and we put the horses out in their field. We were lucky.
This afternoon we decorated the tree. I wonder if this is Loki’s first family Christmas. What was happening to him this time last year? We will never know.
I love having our Christmas tree up. So many memories in all the decorations, especially the ones made by Daisy and Flossie.
Next it is Iacs’ turn to be decorated!
