On Friday evening we had the pleasure of a Stovies dinner in Croy hall with our Trophy winners. It was lovely to see so many with us recieve their prizes from our committee member Claire Rhind.
Unfortunately our Clydesdale section were all away at the World championships In Aberdeen so unable to attend. However, we do forgive them all after hearing of the Highland's Success! Massive congratulations to Galcantray Clydesdales Ord Clydesdales who all enjoyed success on the WORLD stage. Have a look on their pages for their results and photos 🏆
Congratulations Galcantray Clydesdales !!!
I'm having great fun on days off, showing our re-homed Hamish different walks and areas of the forest we've found over the years.
Ailsa scampering off to explore beneath the Scots Pine, Hamish, alert, eyes bright, sometimes venturing a little into the dark depths, though on a trail lead - 5m, now 10m in length, me not holding the end much.
Mark has been more trusting, removing the lead a lot of the time but I know I can't run fast in wellingtons and not too steady on my feet when walking crouched low on the forest floor if he follows her and gets caught, so for the moment, for me, the lead stays on but I can certainly see it's not preventing the experience for him. Anyway, there's the added joy of greeting when Ailsa reappears further along the path from the inner depths!
A few photos from the forest attached. Two happy dogs! Plus, photos of a group of cows in the village we walk through, and Galcantray Clydesdales foals with their Mothers' beside the steep hill leading to the Farmhouse.
Cheerio for now my friends. Love Lizzie xx
Another couple of Galcantray Clydesdales from further up the hill. The size of these stunning horses is something to be seen.
Rico was standing patiently in the background waiting on Drax and Danny getting their breakfast first at Galcantray Clydesdales.

Clydesdale's are the most beautiful animal's around my Dad was a ploughman and proud of it we grew up with these beautiful horses and
Stopped to say hello yesterday; unfortunately we had no means to contact ahead of time... so we just enjoyed the horses and the view. Everything was beautiful - and sorry we missed you. Next time! Cheers!
These beauties were at the end of our drive last year, now just down the hill. The donkeys have taken over this field just now so I’ll update tomorrow!
Dave & Bev at Galcantray Clydesdales are regularly out driving their Clydesdales and are only too happy to be contacted directly for a farm visit or ride out in their cart too!

Our woodpecker is back visiting in our woodland, and the weather forecast looks great for the rest of the week!
We are surrounded by Galcantray Clydesdales and their donkeys at the end of our drive, they even have a few pigmy goats by the farm and some new arrivals!
