Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre visit 2015

Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre visit  May, 2015.

On May Day Bank holiday, Marjorie and I went to the Cotebrook Shire Horse centre at Tarporley, a nice warm sunny day sandwiched between the wet and dull days before and afterwards.
We had been last year but looking on their website recently we knew they had some new arrivals!.


First thing to greet you is this nice Peacock and peahens.





This is Edward, the best Shire Horse in the world, 23 years old and still servicing anything put before him.


Marjorie admiring Edwards son George, another world beater!

Owner who gives a wonderful talk at 1100hrs and 1400hrs





All these pigs are ladies in waiting, due in a couple of weeks we were told.

In the first field coming out of the barn these mares are all visitors to be introduced to Edward or George!.







They stay until it's proved to have been a successful mating and then go home,

These couple of beauties belong to the Centre, the one on the right is eight years old and is expecting again, had a foal every year since she was one year old.
They are both due to foal in the next couple of weeks, check out the website where they will be announced.  





Out in the fields there are the new foals born this year up to now!.



A couple of old mates.


Rare breed sheep.


Big daddy!

Rare breed Chicks






Polecat
Tight squeeze

So a good day out, only spoiled by the fact that it was the Oulton Park Motorcycle racing and got caught in the traffic on the way there, but a good run home before they let out.

The good thing is that you get a certificate with your receipt that lets you get in for free for a month after your visit, so will be able to go back and see the new arrivals.

Go on Tuesday's if you are a Golden Oldie, as its half price to get in and half price in the cafe, can't be bad hey.
