My Life on Shelter Island

21 Mar

Zoe Hudson has written to say how much her seven year old daughter enjoyed the book. This gives me great pleasure. I hope other young girls may enjoy it too. Milla remains fixated on horses. W hen she stays with me she goes to  muck out  in a stable every day and does not even mind if she cannot ride the ponies. She does not mind if we have to be in the stable at 6am!

My Life in Shelter Island

29 Dec

Milla, my granddaughter and I wrote this little book after a wonderful holiday in Shelter Island, (an island off Long Island N.Y.S. ), where we imagined that we were looking after far to many horses on her parents small-holding. I became a ‘virtual’ expert in grooming, feeding, exercising.

The interest remains. She has weekly lessons and a recent visit to England was particularly successful, not so much because of the outings I had planned, but because of the three ‘rescue’ horses in the field behind our house, which Milla and her sister could feed, water and generally attend to daily.

I need make no plans for the next  visit!!
