The show must go on – funky haircuts no more http://www.kensmyth.com/the-show-must-go-on-funky-haircuts-no-more/ Mon, 24 Jul 2017 19:47:37 +0000 http://www.kensmyth.com/?p=3748 Well – as featured in the British Alpaca Society magazine this quarter, Kensmyth ten year celebrations continue but the funky hairstyles were removed just before the heatwave. the male shearers who did it and wanted to remain nameless did a sterling job.

Kirstie – a UK lady shearer who sheared our girls this year, came back just before the heatwave and removed the funky styles as always planned so that the boys could enjoy the hot summer. well, the wet hot summer! thank you to everyone involved with the celebration of Alpaca this year and our Ten year celebrations!

Hartpury – the Agricultural and Equine place to be http://www.kensmyth.com/hartpury-the-agricultural-and-equine-place-to-be/ Fri, 21 Jul 2017 17:55:34 +0000 http://www.kensmyth.com/?p=3735 we were lucky enough to be invited to Hartpury recently to watch Rebecca represent Great Britain in the dressage – absolutely amazing riding, spectacular, so beautiful and elegant to watch.

We spent quite a while watching the less abled riders starting their journey to Dressage fame in the indoor arenas and I was inspired, really moved. Literally marvellous dedication and determination, we met several riders in wheelchairs before they rode and the lump in my throat in admiration for them was there all day. It was definitely not just the dust in my eyes from the raking of the arena!

But –  that is a very big horse you have there Geoffrey!

Lull before the storm at Kensmyth http://www.kensmyth.com/lull-before-the-storm-at-kensmyth/ Wed, 19 Jul 2017 07:44:58 +0000 http://www.kensmyth.com/?p=3728 In life there are many sayings and the one I favour is “count your blessings” which was my Grandmothers favourite. Sometimes people make it very difficult to do this and it causes immense stress.

As we approach another whirlwind of stressful times ahead – literally with the weather, sometimes it is time to get “off the treadmill” and take a break to look at the beauty around you…

 

and before you ask – NO she does not go on the treadmill, she just likes lying on it occasionally!
