The weather is turning, the forecast is very bad, so panicking, we packed our bags, loaded the van and are leaving Shetland on tonight’s boat rather than tomorrow’s as there was no guarantee the captain would take livestock based on tomorrow’s forecast.
Northlink have been brilliant. Having first said there was no room, they managed to find us a cabin and space for the van so huge relief all round.
We are taking Kappi and Waffle and are off to West Linton, just outside Edinburgh for the Icelandic Horse of Great Britain Championships. Daisy is riding while Floss and I are probably getting in the way!
Wish us luck.
