17th October, 2008 Dactylis Glomerata

Today I ran a clinic over at Wellow and worked with a lovely pony called Dacs (top) whose registered name is Cocksfoot. His owners have adopted the Latin version of this rather than calling him Cocky! I also worked with Gracie, a lovely Dartmoor filly who was orphaned a few days after birth and found under a bush; she looks great now. The last horse, April, is a beautiful Thoroughbred brood mare - I'm introducing her to clicker training so that visits from the vet can be made more pleasant for her.

All of the good news this week is overshadowed by the fact that little Vieshot, who was at my demo last weekend, suddenly came down with a virus and died within a day.
