Today was the “Celebrate One Year to Go until the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow” afternoon. So off we went to Gilbertson Park in Lerwick with Fivla and Vitamin, plus the Fair Isle sweaters.
Luckily it was a cool, overcast day which meant the ponies were not too hot or miserable. We arrived, did some brushing, and put the ganseys on.
We also quickly spied an ice-cream van so decided to start the session properly.
A few early introductions and then off to meet our waiting public.
There was much going on around us and the girls totally ignored it, concentrating only on the nice green grass that needed eating or the small child that needed meeting.
There was a prize giving and photos afterwards where the ponies were included.
More eating, more meeting and more greeting…
Still masses going on behind us, including Double Dutch skipping (very impressive).
There was even a large parade of flag wearing children and, though interested to start with, neither Fivla or Vitamin actually cared enough to stop eating for very long.
We cleared up after ourselves and, as everyone was going home, we made the decision to wend our way as well.
I am exhausted but pleased. The girls behaved perfectly and everyone loved them. So Round 2 tomorrow and I will report back then of our next adventure. An early start so I am off to bed.
