Snap-tured!

Pics of my furry friends, life and times and ‘mother earth’ who provides the multi-sensory, ever-changing art which surrounds me which is omnipotent, nurturing, loving, wise and treacherous! (Click on the pictures below to view the galleries.)

Horses

Horses – Latterly, I have competed in the sport of endurance. Tes Ezraa (right) was my first endurance horse. I trained him from scratch and he competed at international level with placings at 1* (80K) and 2* (120K). Talisman El Nefous was imported from France as an Advanced 8 yr old and we were also placed at 1 and 2* level. Being a hugely talented athlete, Talisman is now turning his hoof to other sports!

Cats

Cats – Love of my life Bryngwyn (left, who was a rescue cat) is the personification of a much beloved horse, cat and dog I lost just before I moved to Wales; he has the personality traits of all three and is my constant companion, supervisor and personal trainer. Elizabeth Aarion (right) is his feral ‘wife’. Ethel May and her three children Myfanwy, Blodwyn and Gwendoline, along with Lomax 1 and Lomax II also live on the yard. They are all are named after past residents of my ancient property.

Home and Wild Wales

Home and Wild Wales – It’s magical! The valley seems to have its own weather system which constantly changes and is living art, as you will see from the photos. I strive to capture the beauty as I am out and about which makes me constantly aware of it. The property is not at all what I was looking for but I fell in love with it and though it’s still a work in progress,  I feel totally at home here!
