Georgia is joining me this year in the Race for Life so today we went for our first 'training' session.....Let's say we may need to practice a little more often if we are going to manage to run further than the first corner.
We made it, in fits and starts eventually to the sea wall where we then sat amongst the Konik ponies for half an hour. They are such placid and beautiful creatures, not bothered by the dog at all and very inquisitive. Regular blog readers may remember the incident when one of them tried to eat one of Stan's wellies - today my trainers were the subject of some good but reasonably gentle chomping. Georgia had fun gathering grass and clover to feed them whilst I was mesmerised by one of the Marsh Harriers, criss crossing the rape fields, looking for lucnh but never seeming to find any. G and I decided we really are so lucky to have all of this on our doorstep. She was rather put out when a group of two or three families with loads of kids came along and joined in the horse play.
