Puccini may be spinning but I'm delighted Mr. Mann picked what is probably my favorite tenor aria to raise money for such a worthy cause.

Thanks.

Granny, glad you enjoyed it. I was quite impressed with his singing, its one of the charities I donate to , you can't give to them all!
Dora, I think she is about eight or nine, but shes very nervous of new things and hasn't done a lot in her life so need some education.
Wildside, she's very kind and tries hard. can be enticed onto tarpaulin for a polo-mint. . .

She really is a beauty, isn't she. If it's windy there you could tie some bags on the fence so they'll blow around a bit and she'll get used to that. Another thing you can do is put the tarp on the ground so she'll have to walk on it to get to her water and feed. That way she gets to associate with them without anyone around, might help, might not, haha. A lot of my stuff is "old style" and some "new" and I never know which is which.

Alice, think you might be right but there is no 'set up' for leaving the plastic with her food as there are too many horses, I'm only there once a week and nobody else sees the point.
