I was going to call this blog Monday Morning Disease because I think I am becoming rather addicted to the camels and all of their lovely camelid, equine and ovine friends. There are not many days when I fly out of bed, hop into the car, and even don a pair of decent jodhpurs to ride in!
It's all really thanks to Martine (and her friend Sheri who put me in touch) that I have been given such a treat, and trusted with the breakfast arrangements for the animals as well as going out riding on and with the camels.
Arizona, on the right, is a safe set of hooves, on which to enjoy the near and distant scenery...
...and she doesn't mind being in the middle of a Polo Pony sandwich either.
This morning we were out with Martine's employer, as well as Charlotte, Temojin and Therese and Loopy, the grey ex-racehorse.
Temojin is extraordinarily handsome...
...and Therese is beautiful too - especially when she closes her nose against desert storms.
|Can you really eat these Therese? Watch me now!|
So what do I know about camels now?
