Something lovely happened this week and it’s all down to Lesley so this blog really belongs to her. In her own words:
“A little while ago the BDS (British Driving Society) ran an online photo competition for the best head shot of a harness horse. The winner would have the photo painted as a portrait by the judge, artist Anna Claire. I thought there were so many photos of flashy cobs it would be nice to see a good, honest driving pony, so I sent a photo of Jim. There were 133 entries….and I WON!!!! Sooo exciting…Jim can win things without even leaving his paddock!”
Well, I’m pretty certain Jim didn’t choose the photo and complete the competition form so it might have had something to do with you too, Lesley! The photo chosen is the one from our website and we should say thank you to Ash Black who took the photo originally. Thanks also to Gemma who always turns Jim out so immaculately on these occasions. Check out the British Driving Society (BDS) Facebook page for the report.
At a time when life is so trying, it is lovely to have something to celebrate and who better than our precious pony to lighten our day.
More from me next time. This one belongs to Lesley and Jim.
